Elements of Love

Red sun lifts
As smaller loves
Butterfly flames
Lit with silk
Kisses catch
Fire until only
Ashes remain.

Yellow sun beams
As lesser loves fly
Phoenix wings sing
Golden tails
Soar high
Leave earth and
Freeze, scatter
Back to ground
Frozen fire
Broken ice
Without a sound.

Dark glacial seas
Kissed by red
The morning ice
Sings reflections
Roused from
Winter sleep
For just a minute
Until a braver day.

A lesser heart may weep
For a brighter signal
Not these warm whispers
Slow, constant and eternal.
