The Anachronism…#ArchiveDay

the current image:

fierce independence

feminism at its peak

militancy

strength like a brittle shell –

 

but still, quietly:

the nurturer

Earth mother

arms made to hold

her children –

 

and inside:

the wife

hidden

keeping homefires burning

a secret Penelope

waiting on the shore

longing to care

for partner, children, home and hearth
