Panchabhoota (Five Elements)

I was Born
To the WATER
of my Soul
- Ever Flowing
and ever strong

To the smell of wet EARTH
after the rains.

To the SKY
that's too far away
to make the distinction between
exists or does not exist.

To the BREATH
that smells of someone else.

To the FIRE
of my heart.

You know..after you mentioned your 2006 posts were better, I went through every single post that you made through 2006 and apart from one post available Here I still think that Panchbhoota is one of your superior works. :) Good One again.

Spirituality of words is so earthly, so aquatic,so ethereal, so breezy , so passionate that one thinks as to where one belongs-- to this world or to the other world.....
