The other day I wrote about loneliness from the perspective of being elemental (related/comparing to an element of nature).
I suggested that perhaps we are ourselves of an elemental nature and our emotions and passions reflect this.
So for example if I said I was listless, bored, indifferent how might you view that in terms of nature and it’s elements. Would there be a specific terrain (locale)? Would one of the four basic elements be involved? Would there be … motion!
Yes! Often motion is a key to most things isn’t it? And if one is motionless, then that also is suggestive (the calm before the storm, the stillness of the night).
So are we then … a force of nature? Certainly if we want to be, and some more than others but we all have the capability within ourselves. And if so … are we directly or indirectly connecting with nature itself?
I’m guessing the answer is yes!
He came silently in the calm before the breaking dawn.
masterful in his movements,
Silent, no one heard his approach.
She lay still in her bed, stirring slightly.
The air was thick, she was sweaty and pushed back the blankets covering her,
Something, there was something, her breathing quickened
She pushed the damp strands of her hair away and turned her face towards the pillow.
Semi-asleep she was in a state of not indifference but of otherness.
Aware, yet unaware.
She had retired late in the evening
Allowing herself to wallow in empty unknowing.
Not despair as much as feeling listless,
needing something but indifferent to life and it’s offerings.
There was something missing deep inside her.
He had but one thought that had taken root one day,
One motive, one desire.
As the dampness of morning closed about him
the chill vapor from the river cooled his fevered brow.
He approached her dwelling.
The air already dense with his longing,
grew even richer and heavier with his need.
Soon the sun would emerge to
chase away the shadows where he had moved so quietly from within.
He must make his move.
The door to her house slammed open.
The walls shuddered.
She sat up, clutching her bedding close about her.
Her eyes grew wide as she saw him standing there.
The look of intensity in his eyes burned her soul.
“I am here”, he said
striding determinedly to her bedside and gathering her up into his arms.
… For you!”
Okay, did you feel the blending of emotions, nature’s elements with human motions and actions? Did you catch them all? Hope you enjoyed this elemental story of love!

Nature is a great influencer, but i always wonder how much we can influence it with our outlook, either way the powerful clash of the nature and consciousness is an intense interaction.
I think it’s more than that SteJ. Can’t explain the connection but I think there’s something more. Or maybe I over think things more than I should lol!
Is there such a thing as over thinking? If so I shall join you on the guilty list.
Nice to not feel alone in that regard!
I felt the intensity of his deisre for her. Powerful blending of the elements and human deisre, Penny. 🙂
Thank you Celestine my friend! The two aren’t so far apart me thinks! 🙂
This sounds like a song between the earth & human life!
xx 🙂 🙂 xx
Oh RoSy, you’re good! (of course!!!) No one else caught that! 🙂 xx
yes, nature does have its say and blends well with different emotions
Sometimes it is almost spooky how we react just like nature or is it the other way around lol?
sometimes we feel dull even if the nature out there is wonderful and asks to be admired..
There is that too … that’s when it is nice to know there’s someone, somewhere who perhaps feels like we do and can share even the dullness with, I think! But I do know the feeling you are speaking of!
Happy, Inspiring and Prosperous 2013 to you and your family!:-)
Thank you, most sincerely. May you also have a fun and positive year with as many good things as possible to fill each day! 🙂
Love the story.
I think that nature’s way of describing apathy is something like a fine cold drizzle. 🙂
AnElephantCant deny that Penny’s stories
Give him feelings that are far from sentimental
It is not coincidental
That this extra-continental
Sometimes realises he is quite Elephantal
AnElephant hopes it is true
That someone is here for you
And that this allegory
In your so clever story
Delivers something that you can pursue
Thank you! Mostly fiction stays fiction but sometimes … once in a great while … they come true! I wish for each person, who cherishes hopes for love, can find them on this big wide planet where we all live. Much affection, Penny xx
wasn’t sure where you were going then POW love …ahh it is so grand!! (((xx)))
Thanks Len. Yes it is! 🙂 many hugs to you!
