Nature’s Elements

a poem by Aparna Ramnath

The morning sun
does start our day
filled with hope
all the way.

The smiling moon
gives us light
filled with dreams
through the night.

The twinkling stars
blind our sight
guide our path
and make it bright.

The darkened clouds
bear us rain
the showers of which
ease our pain.

The raging fire
makes us warm
soothes our soul
from nature’s harm.

The air we breathe
gives us life
Through moments of joy
and times of grief.
