When life is dark

When life is dark

Where do you go to feel the light again?

Surely there is a place

Where a flame is still burning

Deep down in our soul

If we just don’t agree to be the willing accomplices

To the dimming of that spark

But there are times too

When a dark storm

Obliterates all that was bright

We stand oh so solitary and all alone

As wild winds all about us rage

And everything is thrown about

Helter Skelter

And for some of us there is no way to find shelter

And so we are hit by flying debris

And lots of shame

For not ever having had a place

To call home

That could protect us from the wind and rain

Why is it that we so often blame ourselves

When these wild winds blow

And for our lack of protection or direction

When we were never really ever helped

To find the guiding light

That is all covered over

But still burning somewhere

However dimly still alight

"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.
