Life source

Life source

A Poem by LouBelle

mountains move through me
crystal diamonds of fresh rivers
pave paths from time to time
connecting life source to life source

uncharted grounds explored
hills resurrected when the plates moved beneath me
as my soils were shaking
while my roots were quaking

Mother Nature’s tears
fall to the softest of waterfalls
the deepest of flows seeking high and low
quenching the thirst of hidden valleys
reflecting light upon the shadows
art created in the dark

The geological imagery gives the impression that the speaker is the earth itself. This interpretation holds through the first two verses. The third verse, however, which may be the key to the poem, seems to veer in another direction, the meaning of which I cannot identify.

This is dynamic imagery & mind-blowing personification. Being in earthquake-prone California & very much feeling the quaking, sometimes daily, your middle verse is startlingly fresh, not steeped in the typical stereotypes. Being a lover of my rugged coastline geology, I love how your word painting of a bucking bronco of a planet can provide some of the most thought-stimulating rides! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thank you Margie! So pleased to hear this. :) Much love, Laura.
just like poets, Mother Nature produces art through the pain and the tears...
and no matter how strong our roots, poets seem to find the shakiest stems and they dying blooms...and ponder why...
