On Roses and Netted Woods

I am lacking poetic inspiration today and I love Tosha’s poems so just wanted to share this jewel.

Everything I Never Told You

Hello lovely ones. I’m sorry I’m so sporadic with my posts. I can’t promise I’ll do better, but I thank you all for sticking around. On a random note, going to see the Mister Rogers film this afternoon, excited for it. He was such a beautiful soul. I’m sure Tom Hanks did him justice. Now for a poem. I hope you like it. Happy Monday!

In the journey of my life,
the voyage of self awareness
I’ve fed on roses,
walked through woods netted
with bramble
Mixed metaphors and signals.
I’ve had glimpses of narcissism,
flirted with egoism, had brushes
with bitterness, doubted my worth.
I’ve questioned the validity of the sun

I’ve left small bruises on paper,
but nothing that hasn’t been felt
by others more lyrical than me.
I’ve had childlike faith and believed
in the flickering of fireflies, even now,

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles.

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.
