Elements

FacebookTwitter


I have no idea why I wrote this a week or 2 or 5 ago. I guess its no more than a response to something I saw. A fire sign submerged in flooded water. I can’t remember where I learned about the elements or why I would want to know, what class I was in or where. But I know the elements came up again in my personal study of the tarot. They’re something I keep an eye on, a minor interest, a minor poem.

Elements

I am the air
I breathe
Polluted
Asthmatic Aquarian
Gasping

I am the fire
That burns the air
Polluting
Enervating energy
Draining

I am the water
That puts out fire
That burns the air
Pollution
Emoting empathy
Surviving

I am the earth
That holds the water
That puts out fire
That burns the air
I am pollutant
Profitable prospering
Damning

Hi Ken here, We just read your poem I liked it, you should try and get it published. It struck home because here in Powell River we have quite a lot smoke due to nearby forest fires.
