The elements dominate this coast.
Water rains like a wave thrown upon the land.
The earth transforms into palm fronds and orchids.
The earth is the green avacados, dangling.
Through the shower of rain the blazing sun enters, shimmering with the cool ocean breeze. The air enters our lungs;
The sun warms us, burns us if we go unaware.
The earth becomes our food. And the water: well, are we not 60% water as this vast Pacific merges with the Earth's surface, 60% water.
Then comes the spirit element-- dance, art, emotion, awareness, thought. Love. An all pervasive oneness as a smiling bodhisatva watches over us from the dancing palm tree.
