Of Elements in a Deeper Sense

Fire & darkness, water & light,

The betrayal of flames to the sure-sleeping night.

What face flows like a shadow, in the shade of rippling trees,

as the river is forgotten and the world knows unease?

 

Read the flames and flickering sparks.

The smoking coals and watery hearth.

See the elusive colors flare,

Of water, earth, flame and air.

 

What comes when elements’ designs,

Become one in a clap of light?

And all we know beyond the fire,

Becomes unbearably dark and bright?

 

To hold to the shadows where flames once thrived,

To breathe in the insistence of unbroken night.

Fighting back terror and seeking respite –

Look, the Light! We’ve been found by it.
