My Life with the Four Elements

Yes, the poetry luck has been opened today with the theme 'The Four elements of Nature'.While thinking about it, I got a doubt whether it is four elements in nature or five elements in nature including the sky(aagayam in Tamil).Well,I am going in for the four elements as that is what My poetry potluck requires me to write.You might have noticed that most of my poems relates itself with something real in life like human beings and their feelings.I am doing the same here.Yes,I am comparing the four elements with a WOMAN.She is always surrounded by them in different ways in her life.One of the way has been published as a poem for you.Have a Nice day!


WIND
I met the handsome
Playing around ,swaying my heart as he goes
Always cool and tender his touch
His reasons I  have become
Life in love is adventuresome

FIRE
Passionate love
Mixed with emotions
Expressed hot under the flames
There is nothing else to prove
Our love is been approved

WATER
Draining your love in me, I relish
Making me swamped with emotions
The time has come to reveal a secret wish
Its a gift from you I always cherish
My ground has been nourished

EARTH
The fruit of Life has born soon
Spreading its root  in the  rigid  ground
Holding to me in the rough and tough of our life
Accomplishing dreams with my little companion
To the path of stabilization
