Spark #360DaysofSymbols

Day 26 of 360 Days of Symbols. Today’s symbol? Spark.

flicker lighter flame, at end of the stick, watch the sparkler come to life. run through circles, write the name in the air, do secret sigils of sparkmagic. the kids play tag, one burns the other and cries. put them out in buckets of water, smoke rises up into the night, suffocates stars.

file into the last light, the one doorlight, the windows echoing the shadows of adults inside. the smell of beer is still fresh in the air, and in the distance the thunder of fireworks resound like mountains moving.
