Surge



a fountain
source of a river
or other water
high rolling swell of water
large, violent, wave, billow
the rising and driving
of influences actions and agitations
fire, wind, sound
and the undulating hills

The windlass under strain
the rock of forward to aft
the peak voltage
the whispering voices

To rise and fall
to cast up by
to issue
to move tempestuously
of a crowd of people
of thoughts or feelings
to drive with waves
to slip back accidentally
as a chain round a capstan
as a wheel

To let go suddenly
To sweep, pull, jerk
in a sudden direction

To rise as a surgeon,
a violent oscillation of current
