what matters elemental is the rain
…more than even love…
for rain is prime alchemical
with earth and wind and fire;
it nourishes essential as mere
caring cannot do
what matters elemental is the music
…more than even hate…
for euphony is evil-free
it bathes us in our soul;
it lifts us into thought
it floats us into dream
what matters elemental is intent
…more than even peace…
for persist is primum mobile
to navigate our destiny…to chart
us… berth us…sail us brave across
life’s storming of our days

Bonnie, I adore this! What matters elemental’ is such a powerful invocation, like a magic spell. It hits the mouth like a delicate and delicious flavor. And then: water, music, intent…such a powerful and suggestive trilogy. Beautiful!
