The last time



The scent of your perfume lingers on your jumper

Here in the dark

Light stolen by the night

Reminds me of the times

You were alone

So now

How can I miss you

Knowing you are now home

With the ones you loved and lost


And then there was peace

I felt it rise after you passed

Despite the shock and the painful aftermath

There was a sense of your spirit lingering on the breeze

Blowing into my bedroom with the storm

Through an open door

Later that night

It seemed as though your presence was in everything

Why do we fight against letting go

How can we surrender

Rilke said it well

Kneel and Embrace your nights of suffering

Or just decide instead to ride the tide

That comes and goes

For no one knows

When will be the last time

We ever get

To say goodbye

"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.
