You held me


You held me when I was suffering

You heard my pain

And you allowed it a place and expression

You did not say

Go away

And shut the door

As so many others did

Thank you

How many times can I say it?

Now I know I can trust you

The one they say

Will never betray me

I find that you are not a visible force

But a deeply invisible one

You are infinite

You are presence

And you know nothing of rejection

Or boundaries

You are open and expansive

Full of surrender

Some call you father

But I know you as mother

I know you as womb

And container

I know the love of a mother’s body that carried me

As a cell within her cells

I feel that love

Now all resistance is gone

And in this moment of deep recognition

I open to your healing

And in this moment


You hold me and behold me

I know we are

So deeply loved

So deeply known

"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.
