Blazing, burning, benevolent and beautiful.
A captivating dance of energy
A pillar and killer of life.
It reflects passion, anger, heat
The need for control
And the power of light and life.
Always have a fire in your heart
So you can lead with light and warmth
And never be cold and dark.
Fluid, connected, calming and damning
A rush of coolness and clarity
Flexible and crystal clear
With enough potential to drown you
And the courtesy to clean you of all your filth
The true Elixir of Life
The real Master of Mercy.
Let your mind mimic the modesty of water,
Let it be ever-moving and transparent
So that you may adapt and conquer
Or morph and heal in all times of life.
Grounded, firm, reliable and balanced
The support under our feet
Grand and grave, terrifying and necessary
Useful in too many ways to state
And a constant in times of change
Let your body be as tough and sturdy as the earth,
Let it be itself
And treat it with the respect of mountains and earthquakes
Make it strong and bold and it will never fail you.
Majestic, fascinating, omnipresent and all-knowing
A wild flurry of whispers and screams
Flailing and flirting with streams and flowers
Reassuring gusts of wind tangling in your hair
with an inexplicable peace that will always calm you
The soul is just like the air
Filled with tornadoes and storms that can settle
To breezes of love and the stillness of tranquility
May your soul be as refreshing as a breath of air
And may you find content in its soft, harsh and confusing ways.
