Life after : the cruellest winter

Cruel winter.jpg

Fire burns here

Seeking life

Hoping for liberation

From the darkest of nights

While over there

Deeply entrenched in another war

You long for me with the same passion

But something in this tangled world

Is setting up blocks to our union

And so what else is left

But to send messages of love and longing

Heart to heart

Until it feels as though

We will burn up with the fire

If anger rains down my love

Don’t you see

It is only birthed by this all too familiar sense

Of impotent rage I feel

In the face of a world gone deaf dumb and blind

To what truly matters

If I have to wait I will

Are we battling with God

And universal timing?

Is this just the moment to surrender

To lay down our swords and stop the fight

Or is this the time to be like water

That will not stop at nothing

Until it finds a way through those barricades

Meanwhile this fire burns

As I make a vessel of my body

Seeking air and light

Hope and life

Holding on to a fragile thread

Struggling to breathe

Inside all the awareness

Of a life that seems to have been

Almost entirely spent merely existing

In the deepest, darkest

And most cruel of winters

"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.
