Earth And Fire

Earth And Fire

Isabella Booth, 11th Grader at BCECHS

I often think about the relationship between Earth and Fire.

Earth smothers Fire but also fuels them.

Fire’s passion burns and scars Earth. 

Fire never apologizes but Earth always does.

 Perhaps for instigating the sometimes-devastating mix of Earth and Fire. 

After all, Earth brought it on themself, right? 

Fire used to think they hated catching.

Earth set them alight. 

Fire doesn’t let Earth know they love burning. 

Earth sees Fire as the light, warmth, and gift of the sun.
