With May in full swing, I thought that I would dedicate this month of Poetry Wednesdays to the four elements: fire, water, air, and earth. I find them fascinating, and would like to pay some homage to their characters.
That being said, I dedicate this week’s “elemental poem” to fire. I took a draft of it from my Twitter post and expanded on it.
Keep a look-out for the next Elemental poems in the following weeks; enjoy! 🙂
Fire, it burns down
the wicker of your back, consuming
each nerve of your skin.
Hot, its breath on your face
wishing smoke, ashes from the tiger’s
eyes, burning bright, high on
light dancing, dancing down
to the last kindle.
