Warm and orange glow

Worries were set on fire

Reduced to ashes

~~~~~

Dandelion wind

Ashes floated among them

Bones were left behind

~~~~~

The ground swallowed it

To burn in the depths of hell

Deep Earth's core

~~~~~

Clouds' dams burst open

The rain blessed the fertile soil

Tiny leaves emerged

~~~~~

Author's Notes:

Sometimes when things get too overwhelming and your anxiety is sky-high, take a deep breath and set your worries on Fire, figuratively. Together with the Air and the Earth, you will see it disappear. And finally with some Water, a New Hope is born ❤️

    I really like the elemental energy threaded into this poem, and the optimistic note of rebirth at the end, after the destruction and emptiness. Seems almost cyclical in nature. Nice writing!

    This is very good and I'm going to have to come back to it several more times before I can take it in fully. Like all really good poetry there's more here than a first reading can digest.
