Four Elements

A poem I wrote while taking a break on the  trail yesterday when I went mountain biking.

Four Elements

What message does your soul send

when in stillness you  listen to the leaves

 as they dance in the wind?

 

Rest stretched out on the earth

with your palms upon Her skin.

Can you hear Her heartbeat as it beats within?

 

Sit quietly beside the running stream

and hear Her melodies played freely,

to bless body and soul so sweetly.

 

What once dormant rises within

while staring into the flames of fire ?

 A fierce, urgent, primal desire?

 

The elements speak, for each one to hear

through the ineffable Spirit.

Hear them, loud and crystal clear
