Pebbles

Pebbles scattered on the road

Run over by vehicle after vehicle

They still don’t break but scatter

Then is poured hot tar and gravel

The road roller grinds them over

The base must be strong they say

The black tar so sticky on the surface

Hardens and smoothes the way

Now that the road is ready

It bears the weight of all

Common man, cattle and cars

Even the heat, dust and rainfall

It suffers for not breaking down

For showing strength unbeatable

Still it leads to a destination

Undaunted, impartial and uncritical.

I'm the vast azure sky...I always look up very high. I'm the indefatigable air...my mark is present everywhere. I'm the water of ocean and sea...you just can't live without me. I'm the unrestrained fire. I'm a secret desire. I'm the ineffable earth. I'm ineluctable since birth !!
