I am not doing this thought justice, because it insists on coming out in rhyme. However, I'm capturing it for reworking later... don't judge me too harshly.
I am earth, you are air;
It's elemental what we share--
water, fire and spirit bright,
sparks fly up in the dark night.
Rooted to this place, a part
Of every tree's living heart,
Closed system energy flow
Through soil and green, and me, I know.
Above the petty fray, among
The clouds, the birds' flight song
You soar, unrestrained and out of touch
Above my reach and gravity's clutch.
Where we meet, mountain peak,
In the cyclone's spinning streak,
Among the leaves of a thousand trees,
We are tied together, god decrees.
