A Word Portrait.

Sie is a controlled burn contained in air, in glass, in crystal. Air-fed flame burning bright enough to blind at the core, and sie’s surrounded it with freezing to keep from being consumed. Or consuming, and the dry ice burn keeps others at a distance – better; careful.

So much of air and fire and mostly air since that’s safer. So much sie’s too untied to earth and so suppressing water. Sie is sky-flame, white-hot intensity, pain-sharp crystalline, drawing people as near as they dare to come; yet such deep shadows come from such light, and there is isolation in the white tower with its layers of finely crafted walls.
