  1. Very nice poem, Emily. I like how you play with the mutually exclusive elements of water and fire while, at the same time, feet are “on the earth” and “bare”. The earth element suggests looking for an anchor in life, something to hold on to, The word “bare” could be associated with “devoid of”, that is, starting by having emptied yourself and so being ready for new possibilites to acquire experience and knowledge. Therefore, to me this is a poem of life renewal, beautifully crafted. Loved its great imagery! By the way, thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I felt very happy.
