Birds of wanting, wandering and wondering


Some days when everything inside you

Wants to clamp down

That is most often

When you need to throw your arms wide open

To embrace the day

And see what birds want to fly

Free from the place of entrapment

In your chest

Where they beat their wings

Against the prison

Of your PTSD cage

There may be birds of wanting

Of wandering and of wondering

That need to circle free

Far from the prison of a place

That stops them breathing fresh air

Or gaining sight of an ocean or a plane

That could inspire them

In their winged breathing

Beating those wings

Little bits of wanting you denied

Long ago come to life

You find the courage

To open the door of the cage

And let those birds

Fly free

"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.
