fire from the sun


Elementals of the world
we all need to survive
not only to withstand their damage
but needing them to sustain our lives.

Earth creates fissures
collapsing buildings
that swallow us whole.
______ using it to grow our crops
______ concrete to build our homes

Water’s tidal waves
drown our cities
engulfs us with its strength.
______ fresh water needed to sustain us
______ supplies food from the ocean’s depth

Air’s abrupt mighty vortex
lethargic rampant hurricanes
destroying everything in its way.
______ oxygen all life needs to breathe
______ regulates the climate of the day

Fires scorching sun
radiation burning our skin
timbers charred to a sunder.
______ provides warmth from the cold
______ light at night, cooking food we muster

_____________ Fire’s as/sociated with getting mad
_____________ ignites road rage in the street
_____________ arsonists combustion protests,
_____________ pulling the trigger of a pistol
_____________ worsens the issues of unrest.

_____________ discharged from an earning job
_____________ getting worked up before a game
_____________ maybe it’s down in purgatory
_____________ fire is used in many ways.

after these four elements
have finished with their bane
only the blaze we can extinguish
letting nature start over again.
