Robert James Liguori and I decided to collaborate on five poems covering the classical elements ~ Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Aether. It has been a fun challenge and we hope you ( the reader ) enjoy what you see...

Our five poems including this one ~~~

Earth ~ World's Destiny

Air ~ We Can't See The Wind But It's Effects Are In Plain View

Fire ~ Fire's Place

Water ~ The Love Of Water

Aether ~ The Fifth Element

A huge thanks again to Robert for the inspiration and Collab!

( A COLLABORATION BY NATASHA L SCRAGG AND ROBERT JAMES LIGUORI ) Aether is the fabric of our universe - Tiny granules that transfer energy In the form of waves ~~~ This goes on unseen constantly! It propagates light and other waves, Longitudinal and transverse ( Or electromagnetic ) Right across the universe! Aether stretches far beyond The laws of physiology! Did you know that Aether Is also a god in Greek Mythology? In chemistry, it is flammable. It is used as an anaesthetic. It's a solvent used in industrial processes - Google it ~ this knowledge is authentic! But at the same time, It's a word that is seldom heard. Most people have better luck Deciphering the songs of a bird! But today, ' Aether ' was on my list, To master and triumph, As if it was a fifth wish! Oh, the gravity of this situation, Like cosmic forces similar to Shakti, I feel that I have learned so much! Should I be yelling out, ' Yahtzee! ' ? The king of the classical elements, Earth, Air, Water and Fire ~~~ Aether bends and amends our universe, To be the most desired!

I did not know that about aether. I knew it was an anaesthetic and gas, of course. King of the classic elements, yet seldom named! Thank you for your enlightenment

Yes I never knew about it either until Robert set the challenge. It was so interesting to learn about it. :-)
