The Elemental Quintet

by Rev. Raven Goldenseal

Age Group: Adult

Part I: Air

The Element of intelligence
Thought and mental vigilance
The reasoned flow of an idea
Thick introspective silence

The methodology of genius
The communicative flow between us
The conversational evolution of an era
Cognitive comprehension a plus

The gentleness of a breeze
Of mental clarity with ease
Light and feathery above Terra
Flights of whims, a mental tease

As Air gives life us in breath
The lack of it, stillness in death
Purified constantly by the flora
Gaia alive – breathing life’s wealth

The breath of our lives
The thoughts our minds drive
This Element of Air
This life drifting slowly by

Part II: Fire

The Element of passion
Lust and fixation
The burning desire
And heated elation

The need to be obeyed
To not be stayed
But not to raise higher
And not be delayed

The Element of wrath
The temper that hath
Rage, anger, vengeance, and ire
The Warrior's Path

Of righteous vindictiveness
The vengeance and the vileness
The brutality to transpire
Of truth and justice

The spark for genius
The heat for the devious
This Element of Fire
This life that burns in us

Part III: Water

The Element of dreams
Hidden reality, unseen
A liquid flow in slumber
Subconscious mental beams

Our intuition, instinctual thoughts
Like the river which flow as it aught
A carrying force slow to lumber
Not a stagnant mire which rots

Cool, level-headed emotions
Loving caresses and caring notions
Empathy and compassion among its number
Relationships, healing, and devotions

The mental vacations of quiet lucidity
Passing along in liquid fluidity
Inner journeys, astral travel while in slumber
The fork of bi-location, dual mobility

The current of our aspirations
Our dreams and mental distractions
This Element of Water
The ocean of a mind in inaction

Part IV: Earth

The Element of substance
Of coherence and measured distance
The function, body, and environment
Leadership, strength, and endurance

For Air to stay, it needs gravity
For Fire to burn, fuel to feed
For Water to flow, it needs bedrock
For Spirit to fill, a body

Earth, the vehicle for life
A physical shell paying time’s tithe
The sensor for pain and pleasure
The flesh that endure triumph and strife

As humans who walk forests and plains
Civilization’s leadership which reigns
Co-existing through bonds of fellowship
Of doubts and concerns no one blames

Strength of body, dominance of mind
Feats of courage and endurance of every kind
This Element of Earth
The world’s people together bind

Part V: Spirit

The Element of essence
The eternal soul’s presence
The very core of being
Before cosmic transcendence

The force of will which drives
The other four Elements besides
Being an Element itself
With them, it resides

A link to the Akashic Record
Universal consciousness to accord
Personal experience and findings
Your life’s entry to afford

Legitimacy in your recollections
Your inner personal reflections
From the four Elemental senses
Not intermittent selections

The five Elements in conjunction
No random, fantastic assumption
This Element of Spirit
Completing, binding our function
