Fire and Water is based on the birth signs. Eva—the sign of Aries represents fire, and Laurence the sign of Cancer—water. The authors say this collection of poems almost wrote itself over a period of time, expressing the passion that they have for each other—light, playful, pleasure, intensity. The poet in love is like a chameleon as Keats wrote, and is able to liberate feelings through powerful metaphors associated with erotic themes. The eroticism in us is timeless, an energy which is “eternal delight” as William Blake has observed.
