because we are air

because we are air
we have trouble with water
are attracted to fire
find earth a bit heavy

we are cerebral, complex

walking is good for us
thinking, not talking
feelings come in
controlled explosions

like concentrated puffs
easily snuffed out

because we are air
we are chilled
down to the tips
of our ears, noses
fingers

yet, passion lingers

words like
flip-turn
nose-dive
parachute
pathos
resonate with us

we look for signs, portents

because we are air
we open the windows
breathe in aromas, flowers
deep in our lungs

we find beauty
in stillness
in darkness

we open the windows
respectful of others
missing their lovers
gasping for air
