Elements of a Life Interrupted

4. Air

There is naught in life what don’t cherish air.

Air is the fresh breath squeaking from Frodo lad’s laughing lips. It’s the wind that blows fresh fruit tree petals on Rosie as she spreads a picnic in the grass.

But air can whistle like a brutal storm on Caradhras, and ooze like the fetid stink of a spider’s deadly lair. It can be the hot and burning sear of Mordor’s smoking ruin.

Yet when the day is done, air is the breathing of a kiss ‘cross the table, to be caught in my heart and saved for when darkness comes.
