You with your restless thoughts

Wish to make a garland of thorns for me

That encircle my brain

With piercings that really should be surrendered

You steal the joy that wants to visit in silence

When worrying thoughts are quietened


Remind me t0 sit still in the sunlight

And feel the silent healing benediction of the breeze

On sensitive skin

Remind me that horrid words that others say

Are just reactions

Not realities

That can pierce my emotional skin

Leaving bitter toxic poison

Which causes infections

Help me not dwell in this pain

Or restless thinking

Help me instead

To dwell in kindness, tenderness and mercy

Feeling the silent, sweet benevolence of surrender

That comes when worry lets go

And love flows in

"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.
