Chi

Steadfast, it sits; stays.
Foundation beneath our feet.
Silently breathing.

 
Sui

A clear stream flows through,
Speaking softly to the land.
Providing life; growth.

 
Ka

An uncontrolled blaze,
Raging with passion and strength.
That which drives all men.

 
F?

A leave flies slowly,
Moving in its gentle wake
As is rocks the trees.


K?

That which is higher,
Which we cannot understand.
Watching over all.
