18 August: dVerse Elements

The Elements

I. Earth

flung its
wind at twisted
bare trees. they creaked
under the bone bleached white

II. Water

rippling floods
and set sail
on summer-heavy tides while
fires burnt the edge of

III. Fire

does dance,
like high kicking
skirt swirling puppets, their
wooden shoes raucous with Thor’s

IV. Air

that galloping
dance that ran
with summer, singing choruses
with tolling bells, a billowing
