tanka prompt: the elements (earth/air/fire/water)

painting by Kathabela

.

(The elements have a life of their own .

In my tiny painting the earth born fibers

embedded in the earthy paper

were not visible

until my wet brush touched the page.

.

Then the firey amber flames began to appear,

from the water spreading.

.

In the bright air the painting dried

and preserved was a magical unrelenting force of nature.

.

Whenever I think of trying to make something happen

I think of this surprising moment,

and how things happen by themselves

when it comes down to the elemental in life.

.

How have the earth air fire and water

been part of your life,

how do you see them as inspiration

and basic powers in your life and your poetry?)
