Have you ever noticed
How varied folks can be
How some are springs
And some are wells ...
And when it comes to me
I think that I'm a bit of both
A wellspring ... do you see?

For much that flows
From deep within
Comes bubbling out so free ...
Filling up each lovely day
As easy as can be
And where it all must come from
Is a mystery to me ...
But isn't it a happy thought
To stop and think a bit
That when we're simply being
We are blest by it!

  2. Hi Margie-

    sorry about my posting a comment and then deleting it.
    Trying again.

    I loved your poem and I feel like you - I am both a well and a spring. I hold many truths in my well and they flow out like a clear spring. :-)

    Love Gail

  3. Hi Margie, beautiful, I hope you had a nice weekend with your family, sometimes these things just come bubbling to the surface don't they. Take care and have a great day.

  4. beautiful flowing words, Margie... yes, both a well and a spring... we all are, i think... all it takes is a willing heart to be open to both... your heart opens so beautifully and responds with so much grace and truth...

    what a wonderful way to start the week :)


  5. Margie, this poem not only moved me but made me think....which one am I? I too am a bit of both but I think more a well, I keep things so very deep inside and most never springs out....but when a bit does spring out it is very honest and from the this poem as it touched me deeply....:-) Hugs

  6. A happy yet thought-provoking poem
    Margie. I guess at various times in life most are a bit of both...I like the idea of "wellspring" to describe our moods!

  7. It is such an inspiring poem, Margie. ;) Thanks for always checking me out. :D Take care always.


  8. A very beautiful poem which deeply touched my must be an incredible person to come up with such beautiful creation.......i'll too stop and think what am i ?

  9. I think more people should stop and think and realise how blessed their lives are, not just when it's a happy day, but even when it isn't

    lotsa luv ann xoxoxox

  10. leeme try my hand in poetry Margie

    I feel for u hunny

  11. HA

  12. Hello Margie,
    Beautiful, and once again I just love the photo of the sunflower. They're one of my favorites.
    Have a nice evening,

  13. A beautiful poem, Margie :)
    yes, wellspring well describes our mood most of the time...nicely written,


  14. I gott another one Margie

    I once met a girl
    said she loves me

    but dammit
    where was u when I was looking
    for a hubby !

  15. regrets

    it is real sad
    many girls loved me

    but I hesitated and hesitated
    and another guy popped the question

    I wont let it happen again
    will u marry me Keshi

  16. Oh Shit
    I spelled her name rong

    her name begins with the letter D
    and it rhymes with Keshi

  17. This is a lovely and upbeat poem. I love the thought that by just being oneself, we can share with other the joy of life, and in doing that we keep getting filled within.

  18. Hello Gail & many thanks on your nice comment!
    I think we all are a little of both
    of a "wellspring"

    Hi Bernie
    That my poem touched you deeply touched me!
    I thank you very much for the very nice comment.

    I used to be more of a "well" when I was younger but now I as just as much a "spring"
    You share a lot of your days (and your heart) and I appreciate that "spring" part of you.

    Hello Kavita
    It's always thrilling to me when my poetry can deeply touch one's heart so I am very happy to know that this poem touched yours in that way.

    Hi Ann
    How right you are when you say that "more people should stop and think and realise how blessed their lives are, not just when it's a happy day, but even when it isn't."

    We always have our "sweet-sour" times in our lives but I always have gratitude for the dark days as well as the days brimmimg full of light!
    There are always new beginnings where there are dead-ends!
