A metaphor, a harbinger, an omen?

Bird Cage.jpg

Where did you go Hovering behind the door Hoping to be seen Lost in the feeling of those talking over you Or walking away And not noticing At all How alone you were

The bluebird of happiness Fell off your golden locket At the wedding You stayed silent out of fear But were so distressed That something you loved Could be so easily lost Was it your fault You already felt everything was

Was it a metaphor or harbinger For what would follow As things were stolen or broken Through no fault of your own Did you then learn Then to stay silent With your fear and confusion All locked inside?

There were no words To say And so all went quiet Except for the buried screams Locked inside your body All this pent up longing and fear Beating its wings against the cage of your breast Heart beat become chaotic Is then a frenzy panic And you cannot escape or free What strains for release Until someone can hear you

Now a trapped winged bird has taken flight And the bars of the cage are open You recall the bluebird Was later found Lying in the long grass Behind the house By someone

Was it a metaphor, a harbinger, or an omen Of what would come?

"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.
