The lane way

walk-on-a-beautiful-morning

I walked the laneway today

In the place where you played as a child

Alone on those afternoons when there was no one

No containment

No mother at home

No siblings

Only a vast yawning emptiness

I imagined you skipping past me

I am you

And you are me

A little further down the road

But today I had a sense

After all my years of restless searching

That finally I am home

Somewhere deep inside

Others may think its mad

But as I walked the laneway today

I felt all my ancestors in circle around me

Surrounding me like spirits

As tears felt

This is what I heard

You are really never alone Deborah

Our spirit lives on in you

And as long you remember

We are here with you

I got to the car crying silently

An entire vista had opened out

And I felt so much wholeness

So much love

I looked into Jasper’s limpid eyes

And told him h0w much I love him

How grateful I am to be alive

Home now is where I get lonely

Out there I am connected

I will keep reaching out

My laneway experience showed me

Deep within something is resolving

Is coming full circle

And at the centre of that circle

While in the laneway

I realised that my life has meaning

As I heard these words ringing in my ears

Your  heart is the centre

Which when open

Is able to contain the circumference

And through its portal

You are connected to everything

  1. This is a memo to the admin. I came to your The lane way | Emerging From The Dark Night page by searching on Google but it was hard to find as you were not on the front page of search results. I know you could have more traffic to your site. I have found a company which offers to dramatically improve your website rankings and traffic to your website: http://ganaar.link/e I managed to get close to 500 visitors/day using their services, you can also get many more targeted visitors from search engines than you have now. Their service brought significantly more traffic to my site. I hope this helps!

    1. Thanks for reading and taking the time to pass on that information to me. I will check it out. Could you elaborate on how I wasn’t on the front page, do you mean the first page and what did you Google to find my site? Would be helpful to know. Once again thank you, Maria.
