Sevenling (3 Elements of Nature) ~ Sayash Rampersadh

3 elements of nature
fire water and air
bound by the mother herself

Do not scream, for it
is rain that nurtures,
not thunder

Choose your words wisely

  1. Just love that last line - it turns the whole poem around with a different meaning than when I began it! And so I read it three times. Very lovely.

  2. Oh this is excellent. "It is rain that nurtures, not thunder. Choose your words wisely." Much wisdom in this poem, and in the poet.
