Four Elements: Fire
It is alive... it breaths air and travels on land,
Yet it shuns the water, does a dance with it
Avoiding it where possible.
It is a glutton... consuming all it encounters
And leaving little behind, but ashes and pain
And once it goes, we may move on
It is a godsend... when reigned in and rained on
It keeps us warm, and can be stark beauty
That ignites other memories in the soul
It is fire, it is the heat and light
It gives and it takes, and it dances
A dance of need, want, and danger.
