The immutable nature of life

Let the fire burn.

What consumes can also feed;

Nothing can be lost.


Let the water flow.

What can cleanse also removes -

Nothing ever stays.


Let the air rise up.

What affects can still forgo -

Nothing can evolve.


Let the earth wander.

And when the ground below moves -

Everything remains.
