Today's starter is: the elements.
Water flows like liquid marching feet;
The whirlpools in the stream set the beat,
While the glacier picks the music sheet.
Fire rips and roars like thoughtless words,
Its path as fickle as hungry birds;
Give it a quarter, it takes two-thirds.
Air flies wherever it wants to go,
Do as you please, you can't stop its flow,
And where your breath goes no one can know.
Earth holds its ground and cannot be moved,
Like plans that refuse to be improved.
The sands of time cannot be removed.
