Water. Water is the vogue element. Here is a poem in the voice of Water. It is called ‘Tearjerker’.
I seem to attract cliché upon cliché,
easy words to dilute my power:
but my most important trait
I remember mixing the mud that made
Dust from the sky, grainy gravel
from ground-down mountain ranges,
rivers of lava from grieving volcanos –
I met them all head on,
seeded their sediment into myriad motion.
So do you truly believe I cannot recall
my last wave-glut flood-flash?
I allowed Noah to ride me then,
bequeathed life to you all – again.
God gave Noah the rainbow sign,
no more water, the fire next time.
Your problem is this:
there is no other god but me.
This time I will laugh at your arks,
this time you will fight over me
even as I salt my way to ice-melt excess:
God gave Noah the rainblow sign,
no more fire, the water next time!
