We’ve counted only nine,
but the family’s much bigger.
A connection of Elements,
that make a union.
Only together do they make a difference,
and make up the world around you.
The sky above you,
The ground below you.
You, yourself, are an Element.
And your family and friends.
We are all Elements.
As the night shades the world,
And everything sleeps,
The gentle, clean breeze of Air’s soft breath
Silently, it flies
In it’s boundless world,
Enjoying the sensation,
Soaring through the open meadows,
Traversing great distances of sea,
Living each day as if it were the last,
Flowing through the river,
Throughout the Earth
Wherever the currents runs,
Water stirs freely,
Living as it wishes.
Gentle enough to float a light feather,
Though fierce enough to drown a large steamship
Water guides and protects,
It gives peace and tranquility
And nourishes life with soothing care,
Raging through the Earth,
Burning everything in sight,
Fire’s untamed fury,
Edges to dominance.
The Earth, it’s fuel, let’s it’s spread,
But Water, it’s enemy, extinguishes the flames
Air does not take a side. It can help spread the flames,
or it can blow them to nothingness,
Fire unleashes it’s worst,
Feared by many, it’s power spreads
Faster than the flames themselves.
Earth forms the base of all the elements,
None of them can exist without it,
It’s beauty can awe even the most impassive people
And it’s power can destroy the most strong structures
It guides Water, with it’s creeks and streams,
It fuels Fire with plants and trees to burn,
It provides Life to living things
And it gives refuge to those who need it.
An amazing spectacle of Nature,
But simply a speck,
in the infinite expanse of the universe
