I cannot hope


I cannot hope to write like you

With language you mine so deep for

 Soul touching

Heart rending metaphor

But these poetry kisses

Are deeply felt

Touching my inner being

Like sweet transcendance

Of that which in hurting

Bid us dive deep

So then we could then rise above

But I do know this

Hope tinges the perimeters of your prose

And brings to mind

The thought of free birds

Flying on air

With wings that know

How it feels to be carried

By unpredictable updrafts

And trust still

 I am just glad to be able to feast on your poetry

Feeling its healing balm caress me in all the places

Plain thoughts of others

Can not touch

"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.
