“Elemental Magic”

Earth is the flesh
supple and smooth or crevassed and barren
broad expanses untouched
or pimpled with specks of civilization

Water the blood
that gives vitality to the flesh
roaring with the power of the ocean
or delicate as a Spring morning’s dew

Air the breath
rhythmic and relentless
a lover’s caress against the back of the neck
or the relentless howl of the storm

Fire the spark of life
that quickening thought which kindles knowing
a blazing inferno, dangerous and destructive
or embers glowing softly, bringing warmth


An homage to the earth and her elements, inspired by New World Creative Union’s Wednesday Wake-up Call this week.
