Fire

 

Purifies loved gold,
strongest metals bend, mold
licks life new or old.

Sparks fly catch on wood;
sparks in your eyes burn your heart–
fires rage in both.

This is my first-ever writing collaboration and the word ‘great’ will be an understatement. I enjoyed writing with you, Mel but more than that, I am so honored to have written a senryu series with the poetess that I look up to. 🙂

Thank you for letting me get ‘high’ on senryu with you.

Wind

Whispers soft and light,
scream signals storm’s strong might, yet
cradles flying kites.

Wind whips tornadoes,
hurls them across the grassland–
toss cars and houses.

Last ‘element’ tomorrow…

Water

Evolves ceaselessly,
frozen then flowing briskly,
can’t live without thee.

Water dashes rocks,
falling in a silver spray–
purity that flows.

Earth

Above sprouts green lawns,
beneath lies decaying bones,
births, buries life zones.

Cities rise and fall
Earth remains spinning through all
the lives led and lost.
