HAIKU # 82 -86 Five elements – Unpredictable

When the things are not balanced whether in nature or our life, the results are always disaster.

AIR

Soft breeze gentle bliss
Strong winds storm of destruction
Absence instant death

WATER

Drops nurturing life
Excess flood of destruction
Absence lifeless Earth

FIRE

Flames a glowing warmth
Molten lava volcanoic
Absence tastless life

EARTH

Green and moist growth food
Hard surface barren dry lands
Too Soft soil week roots

EITHER/SPACE

Profound purity

Humans can never pollute

Power of shuna

Flash Fiction :WATER

M
            

 

 Walking slowly looking at the burning  Sun over the head, my throat dry, even the saliva was no help. As I moved forward my thoughts traveled backwards  to   incidences where I had thrown a near full water bottle after coming from school, a half filled glass into the kitchen sink or let the bucket overflow.

 Suddenly  I heard the familiar sound and  hurried up my steps. There it was  clear, sweet and sparkling. With tears of gratitude I quenched my thirst. That day I realized the fragility of life. 

 Bowing, I pledged never to waste even a drop.
