The elements of language as metaphor for existence: root verbs that aren't just cultural, but elemental. Energy flows. Matter is. Time processes (as in a procession). Living things do. Love fulfills. Change happens. Growing things become.

What happens when these elements become twisted in some way?

I combined "Growing things become" with jenny_evergreen's idea for a liquid species. The result is "The Elemental Symbiotes," a free verse poem about several bizarre plants and animals on the planet of Botannia.

Your prompt about root verbs got me thinking about linguistic unobtanium. So "Digging for Roots" is a sort of weave between linguistics and chemistry, incorporating some subtle plays on ideas from those and other scientific fields. It is free verse written in tercets.
