Fire and Water
You are fire that cannot be contained
Smoldering within, burning true
and all within your path.
I am woman of hearth and home
tending fire within the box
to give warmth to all.
But you are wildfire
dancing to the winds of change
that will not be tamed.
I am baptizing pool
teeming with life that, in love,
will not douse your dancing flames.
