OctPoWriMo 9 - Opposing Forces

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

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

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

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

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