Today's prompt is the symbolism and duality of the elements, earth, fire, air, and water. I wrote an alliterative 4-stress (Tolkien's favourite form) for this because it just seemed to want to be that.

Opposing Forces

It’s cool and calm and captivating
Then rushing, roaring, raging wild

The solid strength of sturdy stone
Turns murky, muddy, a dusty mess

A cheery warm, crackling comfort
Or a scorching, searing, stinging blaze

A soughing, susurrating secret
But a tornado, tempest, typhoon, gale

Nice way to sum up all the elements!
