Poem: "Firewheel"

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


Firewheel


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.

Thank you!

Fire takes many forms, so there they are.

Thank you!

I'm glad you like this. Too bad you weren't here to give me World Tree elemental prompts!

Re: Thank you!

Yeah ... OOC I've not been reading LJ much. I was away a week on vacation, then intimidated by the backlog.
