Springs

My spring flows with
Hot and cold waters
Seeping upwards from
The aquifer of my soul
 
Hot springs of happiness flow
From a deep volcano within
Crystal clear waters cascading
Forwards in gentle rivulets
 
Cold springs seep upwards
Through cracks and faults in my soul
Waters tainted with sediments of sorrow
Leaving a bitter aftertaste.
 
I find myself a stream of lukewarm
Emotions. Bitter sweet waters flowing
Forwards in the eighth magnitude

    I absolutely love the analogy that’s spring and the accompanying imageries of ‘Volcanic Hot/Sweet’, ‘ Icy Cold/Bitter that’s used in the depiction of the emotions…happiness and despair! Its also very clever how those emotions were summized into becoming ‘a stream of Lukewarm/Bittersweet’ of sorts! πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜„

    These perfect lines….they tell our life stories as mortals on God’s green Earth! 😁 And as Elizabeth Gilbert says, ‘Feelings are much like waves, we can’t stop them from coming but we can choose which one to surf’!

    May you continually spring forth from higher to higher levels of creativity! This right here’s brilliant Doc…just! πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜„

        Hehehe. I’d thought you’d never make it out here seeing as you’ve been gone for what seemed like forever! πŸ˜‚

        You know Doc, I could pretty well ask you the very same question! Like HOW did I get sooo lucky to have you give me the time of day to just go off….goof off, on thy space and watch?! πŸ˜ˆπŸ˜†

        Thanks Doc for all times! The absolute bestest time of mine ‘Bloglife’ has been right here on TZC since I happened by this alternate plain that’s filled to the rafters with intrigues and of course…drama! 😈*tsking. And, tis all because of you…just!❀ Thanks a bunch….again! πŸ˜‡πŸ˜

        PS: I’d like to make a quick correction to the above quotation I’d credited to Elizabeth Gilbert. Pardon the error Doc, that oughta be Jonathan Martesson. Do take note. πŸ˜„

    Heavy!!! When it comes to painting the ambivalence of emotions with the pastel of words on the easels of souls, no one does it like you my brother…..

    I wish I have the right words for how this made me feel.
    But then, I have been hibernating for a long while now, so my muse is resting.
    Been a long, long while I’ve been here. That is due to so many ishes I’m facing right now.
    I will be back with full blast soon.
    Well done Topazo.
    Well done…

      I am glad to see you here Jules
      Hang in there, life will be better. We can’t but have issues and downturns but soon- sooner than you think – it will all be over and the sun will be blazing in the sky again.
      Thanks for your continuing readership…
      And we are eagerly awaiting your return
