Life is a rainbow

Of multi coloured hues

And after the deluge

Our soul ascends again

Just as surely as the majestic rainbow

Spreads it technicolour glory

Across heavy clouds of gun metal grey

There are these things

Obstacles which so often seem to eclipse

Our memory of the joyful song

Our inner self can sing

Once it finds again

Wings of light

Gaining real strength and power

To ascend above the travails of night

That we had to endure along the road of life

Who knows what darkness gathers

Spreading its heavy shroud upon us

Weighting our souls underneath

Its burden of care

Making us forget

How close the spirit of life is to us

Yes even in times of death

For what has arisen must pass

What is falling must again rise

Or find its new dawn

And when we cower falter and fawn

As we must at times in fear of our pain

We forget too

That there is something so precious

Lingering still

Deep inside of this

And on the other side of transformation

That something

Is revealed as a gift

We can only receive

After understanding at depth

The power that our wounds have

To keep us trapped

In the darkness

Allowing nothing new a possibility

To take root or blossom around us

Out of the wreckage

Of our broken past

"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.
