My heart is an ocean


My open heart is deep as an ocean

I am not sure that it has a bottom

And deep inside that ocean

Become river

Become fountain

Love flows out

I am learning that this

Is what my heart was designed for

To live, to pump, to gush, to flow

For so long I thought my heart was empty

Or damned (dammed!!)

What a mistake

My heart was always hungry


And then it got angry

Looking everywhere for food

Now I see

That emptiness was a lie

I learned to believe

And to sadly to live

No more said my heart

When I listened in deeply

And was willing to hear what it had to say

With your complete love and attention

It told me

I become full

And from this fullness

Finally there is something to give

A way into a limitless ocean

Become river

Become fountain

Pouring forth love

Carrying you forward on its wave

Free to live

To love

To give

To express

No longer counting the cost

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
