Fire and Water.jpg

York River Sunset


Fire and water
not only opposites
but brother and sister

each bringing forth
their elemental selves
to both enrich and destroy

as they dance through and around
all of which is presented in their paths

yet somehow without either of these
our lives would never have begun
for they are the bearers of both life and death

and unto each we must bow
in deep reverence
for their balancing which sustains us
in a world where our vulnerability
is constantly becoming visible
