Respect for the Four Elements

A poem about the respect for the four elements.

Sipping water drop by drop,

The elixir of life will never stop.

A river swells by heavy rain,

A flood brings many a pain.


Inhaling, exhaling the air day by day,

Oxygen filling one’s lungs all the way.

Hearing heavy winds howling,

Protected from falling trees by housing.


From caveman’s fire to our barbecue,

Never having raw food to chew.

Firemen rushing like diligent ants,

At the scene of the fire in fireproof pants.


The soil feeding us for thousands of years,

Early sprouts chasing away winter fears.

A landslide’s menacing roaring,

Too late to save one’s breathing.


Take care,
