Note: Bastet at Because We’re Poets gave us our first Photo Prompt (+ a few choice words): “We are going to work with Fire! The color of the fire element is red, its season is summer and hot weather, the sound is laughter, the smell is burnt, the emotions are joy and happiness, the taste is bitter (things like coffee, tea, certain green veggies) and it’s “faculty” is the power to feel sadness and pain for example through meetings and separations.”
scraped down to ignite
food and souls in a solstice
of smiles and sorrows
