Fire, wind and water,

Though useful
sometimes they be,

When they shouldn’t
oughtta,

They become a sight
to see.

They can work
together.

Sometimes they appear
alone,

Quite hell-bent for
leather,

A threat to both skin
and bone.

We can’t say which
danger

Is worse than the
other two –

Which outcome is
stranger –

All of them odd
witch-works do.

What’s weird with
this trio,

The three do not in
concert,

And with the same
brio,

Their destructive
voodoo flirt.

Fire with wind is
frightful;

True calamity they
cause.

Avoidance insightful

The winners are
natures’ laws.

Wind plus water
smashes

All that it finds in
its way.

Land, air, seaborne
crashes,

Equally come into
play.

Fire and water are
strange;

They never join as
partners.

At times, they do
arrange

To play tag with
snail-darters.

Fire can be useful:

To heat up water for
tea,

And make forests
fruitful,

By burning the
deadwood tree.

It’s in this latter
work,

Fire and water do
battle.

Fire can be a jerk;

Water says,
“Fiddle-faddle.”

Fire can be
destructive –

That’s how their
battle begins.

Water is deductive;

That is how it
sometimes wins.

Fire[s no match for
water,

Except deep under the
sea.

There, it gives no quarter

Whatever that, “Fire”
may be.

Water. Wind and fire,

Earth’s trio of
destruction –

A funeral pyre,

Or a breeze of
seduction =

A soft wave.
Transporting

Voyagers across the
sea,

Gentle winds
cavorting

Amid a gathering,
carefree –

A fireplace in winter,

When rain clouds
deliver snow,

Bonfires in lands
hinter,

Where warming pine
tree logs glow.

Take caution with
weather,

Be it hot, winter or
rain.

Climate’s on a
tether;

It dangles there not
in vain.

Fire, wind and water,

Though soothing
sometimes they be,

Function like hell’s
daughter

When Ma Nature sets
them free!
