Easing my way back into writing with mindfulness, introspection, and writing challenges.
I like the volcanic metaphor for memories.
Interesting connection with perhaps painful emotions!
Powerful haiku! "Searing volcanic debris"-- wow!
Looking at painful memories can sometimes help to get rid of the 'volcanic debris.'
Yes, that's what I seem to be doing right now. Purging of feelings before a healing journey planned for next month. My spirit quest...
Don't you wish that some of those searing memories would hurry up and cool down?VolcanoMMT’s Blog Featured at Poets United
Always... Much better now than 10 years ago.
Powerful Haiku.Beautifully written.:)
"Searing volcanic debris" sounds terrific, Maggie. It expresses your positive attitude. Bravo!
Civilizations have been lost and new life has blossomed but there is never asking 'nature' why?
Superb, love it!
I feel you there!
When we rid ourselves of that debris, there's more room for peace and harmony...
I love where you took this.
OMG somehow I missed responding to all these supportive and lovely comments! Thanks to all for seeing this as purging the past to do as Joanne said. I seem to be purging more in my writing the closer I get to a spiritual journey planned for next month. I think it's a good thing.
A beautiful comparison ... memories do hurt at times !!!
