The Powers shaped the world,
A ball of earth cored with fire.
They created creatures from the dust,
A heart of fire and blood - giving them life,
And a spark of aethyr - spawning awareness.
Man came last, and woman,
Out of the dust they arose.
Large cores of fire and blood,
Each not fully whole,
Ever-searching for completion.
A spark of aethyr left in each heart,
A target for a companion's love.
More than a spark lights the mind,
Shining out from intelligent eyes.
Seemingly random, some animals rise.
Touched with earth: digging, climbing,
Touched with air: flying, gliding.
Touched with water: swimming, floating,
Touched with fire: humans gain power.
Many colors, ranged across the elements,
Green, brown, white, yellow, orange, red, blue.
As humans grow, so does their power,
Here and there one finds an elemental link,
Growing in new directions
Through a give and take
With an elemental muse.
Author's Notes: I don't really know what inspired this. I wish I did... I'd happily write more element-themed poetry.
