Poem: "Firewheel"

Here is today's second freebie poem, courtesy of new prompter/donor technomage.  It was inspired by a prompt from wyld_dandelion.


Air of Fire:
firebirds flick their burning wings
against a black sky,
shedding feathers for heroes to find.

Fire of Fire:
dragons roar from their volcanic lairs
to bring forth the magma flows,
leaving gold and silver and gems.

Water of Fire:
salamanders slip from the ends of logs
disappearing like rain soaking into sand:
somewhere, down there, are the hot springs.

Earth of Fire:
soot sprites settle like velvet dust
pointing here, pointing there
to show what needs to be made pure.
