Elemental New

As the sun sets, I’ve seen clouds radiate pink
I found clouds lined with rainbows in the middle of the day
I’ll take that over every silver-lined cloud any day
I’ve had the salt air of the ocean curl my hair
The cool fog kiss my cheeks as it dances through the streets
The dry heat of mountain deserts toasts my skin dry
My element is fire, but for this moment I dance with the wind
Fleeting and changing with the power to move my heft
But without substance so I can’t touch it with my finger tips
Grounded in the experience of who I am
It is time for me to step beyond the cliche
A moment of an opening to find a new way
