Fire Water Air And Earth

Fire burns within our spirits, forging the fate of our soul. And upon exaltation its flame envelopes us whole. Water's essential to life, that started in the ocean. And flows within every cell like a magical potion. Air fills our lungs with each breath, oxygenating our blood. And takes carbon dioxide, allowing flora to bud. Earth is essential for health, storing minerals we need. And all those trace elements, are absorbed each time we feed. We're fire, water, air and earth, some alchemist understood. And strove to share their insights, throughout the ages best they could.

    This is an entertaining elemental poem for me to read. I especially like the analogy presented in the 1st stanza: fire igniting spirit and forging the metal of our soul -- the age-old quest of the Alchemist.
