Fire

This poem is first in the anthology of poems based on the five elements.

Fire — The fire element represents all forms of heart and energy like sun, volcanos, and mines in nature.Inside our body, body heat and digestive juices are forms of fire.Wherever energy is in abundance, it is the fire element at work.

“It’s too bad if a heart lacks fire,
and is deprived of the light
of a heart ablaze.
The day on which you are
without passionate love
is the most wasted day of your life.”
― Omar Khayyám

You cleanse
as you burn
the sins to ashes
the purification
and sanctification
ritual,
we are following
through ages.

We are touched by you
you scald and burn us
as a reminder
to the raging presence
ready to devour 
our pity existence

You can turn
the existence of
a mighty
forest to
fistful of ashes or
can mark the journey
of two kindred spirits
touched by the
glow of your flames

You are within us and
and you encompass
us with your ever glowing
warmth
fuels our desire
keeps the life sprouting
consumes the dark

Fire, a reminder of the
raging desire of love
or of a women’s scorn.
