Water

Nature’s existence is of water,
As it is the essence of earth.
Our lives owe water everything,
As everything in life consists of water.
If air and wind are named supreme,
Then water is the initiator of all.
Our sacred scripture described it early on.
Be accountable how you use this water,
As there won’t be any life without it.

Harjot Dhindsa  16, SeaTac
