WQWWC :: Heat

soul fire

This week’s theme for WQWWC is “heat”. I decided to go a little bit sideways and post about the heat from the soul, my inside heat that needs to come out in the form of creativity. Not sure if the word heat is the best, “fire” is more appropriate. For many years I’m using paintings and collages as a vessel for expression. Poetry is another form to let out what is in my mind. And of course, I couldn’t forget to mention the journaling practice that is a constant form of expression for me.

Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames.

Rumi

Abstraction is my favourite kind of expression, both for my painting and my poetry. Recently I had my poems featured in a poetry book, I’m quite pleased with myself, you can check it here.

The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.

Ferdinand Foch
moments of reflection

I always write about my feelings before starting any piece of art. I need to check what my soul needs at that moment, what is the fire, the energy igniting my creativity at that moment that I need to put out in the world. 

Energy is the key to creativity. Energy is the key to life.

William Shatner

The poem below is one of my favourites when I need to express my feelings through art.

In the heat of heat
The heat is so hot
My body takes control
In the heat of heat
The heat gets so hot
My passion overloads
James Harris III

  1. Wow, Elizabeth, you are so multi-talented. I love the first painting. Those fall colors are my favorite over all – except turquoise, of course! I love how you do you journal. You should see mine. It is the opposite of feelings – it’s how I organize and get things done, ideas, passwords, everything jumbled up together. I LOVE journaling. You might be interested in writing a guest post about journaling, or sending me a link I can feature of a post you’ve already done. Here’s one of about 18 posts I’ve done about journaling. https://alwayswrite.blog/2019/04/10/learn-the-secret-about-online-journaling-even-if-you-hate-to-write/

    1. Hi Marsha, thanks for the lovely comment! I made that painting a while back, it was in a day that my feelings were exploding! Journaling is indeed very rewarding, we win so much practicing it everyday. I’ll give a thought about a post about it, I think I have done one already,but a fresh one will be better. I’ll check yours out! Have a great weekend!
