bhumi, jala
agni, pavan . . .
and the akash
bestowed the space
for life and for all to live

Earth: Our Common Ground Anthology, 2017 (Ed. Claire Everett)
  
Author's Note:

bhumi: earth; jala: water; agni: fire; pavan: air; akash: void
In Vedas, it is mentioned that the creation is made up of ‘pancha mahabhuta’ or five elements essential for existence of life on this earth. In the ancient scripts of Hinduism earth is worshipped with reverence as mother.
