Sunday Stills - Elements Through The Seasons

How do we explain the elements of nature?
Ever seen horses wearing blankets? In Winter-Spring, they do.
They say Winter is synonymous with Earth. Check out the dry Potomac bed, the dead branches, the thick clothing.
Even Santa's appearance is dictated by the change in elements! :)
There is stillness as the cold peters down, settling in as snow.
In Spring, there is coolness in the Air, harvest is a-plenty for strawberries, a favorite spring fruit!
Farmers till their land for more planting!
In Summer, Fire is strong. Some fruit rot!
Some transform into a ripe, luscious eating! Love guavas!
The butterflies are a-flutter, alight with passion!
People, plants, and animals go through a lot throughout all the seasons. Our Spirit transcends everything and nothing. There are births and deaths.
The elements of nature have their own order. Fall is synonymous with Water, where intuition is strong.
We affect all these elements with our attitude. We must take care of Nature before Nature can take care of us!

Hope you enjoyed this!

I like the strawberry harvest!

We do have locally grown strawberries up in Cameron Highlands but they have to be soaked in sugar syrup as they can taste really sour.
