Harbinger of winter

Autumnal Gold.jpg

Winter will be here soon

Stealing its way in on icy feet

Wrapping it tentacles of foreboding sorrow

Around my heart

Heralding the loss of warmth and light

The stealing away of summer

Attended by the appearance of autumnal gold

That speaks of death

And easter as the precursor

Of a longer slower more painful


Filled with reminders

Of endings

Of leave taking

And yet

With the opening of this heart

Deep within a furnace of remembering and longing

Is summoned up

A different kind of warmth

The reminder of how much it is within my power

To make of all of this transition

A benediction

For the love and life and hope that remains

Has been so dearly fought for

Has been reclaimed from those ashes

That once grown cold

Led this soul to a grieving

Which in time

Awakened me to

A deeper realisation of the power that lies hidden

Even in the ending of a life

Reminding me that

When life is fully embraced

In all of its seasons

Grace is born

Even in the depths

Of darkest winter

"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.
