Where I Belong

Composed 4/8/16
Description: For Day 7 of NaProWriMo, in which the optional prompt suggested we write a tritina. I had never written one before, so it was a fun challenge!

You soothed my soul with words like water
And steadied me like stone cold earth
But still you set my skin on fire

All humans sing and yearn for fire
And drink down passion like thirst for water
Soon many fall, drunk, onto the earth

You may tremble like the earth
Exude heat like the strongest fire
But you nourish all like purest water

I belong where water is clean, fire unburning, earth unyielding
