Wonderfully done – love the juxtaposition – the anxiety/uncertainty that is created by climate change, especially the impact on the younger generations, coupled with the love, security and care of the father for the child, how the child must feel safe and protected. So many levels to this ku…
Wonderful! Great image and appreciated the use of 'secure' in our 'insecure' world of climate
change and the support and security of family. Living in No California with our terrible wildfires the last two weeks (and last several years) and its human and environmental destruction, climate change is no longer an abstraction but a living reality which we're are feeling in our heart & bones.
I categorize haiku and one major category is what I call, ECE, early childhood education. This is an ECE poem. Lovely and powerful. Good parenting is one of the most important keys to our future as a whole. This father is a good dad.
Very thought provoking poem. Taking all that has been said before, then adding the actual action of lifting the child into where one would think the purist air exists at the rally. In doing so bringing in a further thought of the chemicals we roam amongst in our daily lives. Great poem for the moment.
