Sojourn

Through an arduous journey,
A sojourn of seeking,
Enlightenment through the elements,
The gifts of the earth,
That washes us clean with it waters,
Sterilizes us through and through with fire,
Blows away our afflictions,
And from the dust allows us to be born again,
With newfangled innocence,
And a new beginning,
The sun shines down,
Giving light to new life,
Allowing it to flourish,
And begin it's journey again.

    It is this arduous cycle and whirl and ever continuing war of the elements where nature attempts to purify itself is, I think, what the poetess is after, telling this extended and long story eloquantly in her subtle and creative style with but few enchanting verses.
    Thank you for sharing this work.
