what is fire ?

i ask you
is it warmth or strange desire ?
does it make you nice and cozy
or so hot that you perspire ?
does it fill you with a fervor
like a hymn sung by a choir ?
so what do you imagine
when i ask you
what is fire ?
 
what is earth ?
i ask you
just the planet of your birth ?
the soil that holds the flowers
that can bring both joy and mirth ?
when you're put below it's surface
have you had your money's worth ?
so what do you imagine
when i ask you
what is earth ?
 
what is air ?
i ask you
is it something we all share ?
an object that cannot be seen
but pulsates everywhere ?
is there enough to go around
and will you get your share ?
so what do you imagine
when i ask you
what is air ?
 
what is water ?
tell me
is it tears or rain or sea ?
vast molecules of moisture
that will live eternally ?
does it really want to drown you
or perhaps just set you free ?
so what do you imagine
what is water ?
answer me
