Elemental Songs


Water Song:










It seems the flood
the over-flowingness
Is not to be contained,
Fixed and predictable by boundary.
“I am she.”
The river running.
And so she is.




Wood Song:

It has the song of water
&
The song of water flowing .

Wind
&
Next door’s Poplar tree.



Earth Song:

Stepping closer to the edge
So the heart runs faster,
Solace and empty hands.

The gradient arcs outward
Tight stretching the muscles,
Transforming in the unfolding.



Fire Song:


Stone Being giving birth to the new
Twist from one to other
Separate to expectation,
Then burn the barns
Trash the crops
Make your new home, home.


Air song:

Wherein the tenderness,
The grace of person
When no divide exists?


Slow standing, still breathing
Counting the pinpricks of light-
Winter’s unwinding tokens fall.
