Elemental Cycles

Desert thirst
Waterless ocean
Death by sand

Fire dressing
Flickering fabric
as you writhe

Bath too still
Submerged for too long,
motionless

Natures loves
this special vacuum
No breath here

Earth, fire,
water, air; gather
souls to home

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
