Of Life #dVerse #amwriting

“Of Life” was written for dVerse where we were asked to write about an element.

(c) Sascha Darlington

Of Life

I am the red embers glowing in the grill

the choking gas silently killing.

the bubbles in seltzer.

I am the strongest–some say–most beautiful gem

portraying the purity of love;

As well the weakest element,

capable of great beauty,

in the hands of artists and poets on paper.

Trees breathe me in sustaining you.

Despite this–

Because of this–

I am the basis of all life

not simply a carbon-copy.
