The way to live

There is only this life

And the ways of running

Away or towards

The beating of your own heart

Life blood pumping

In systole and dyastole

Moving through you like

The force of the wave

Taking you to the depths of anguish

Inside the flood

Or to the place where light burns through

Rivers of fire

The storms of life that met you

The silence is anything but silent

At times it is full

Of the voices of ghosts

Saying things probably untrue

Will you listen

Or will you choose to take your fate

Within your own hands

Open your body

Even as the terrorist

Convinces you that death

Will bring about the ending

Of everything

How to live

Within the maelstrom of it all

How to summon up whispers of new life

From piles of ashes

How to dance

Even under threat of death

As the reaper smiles from the shadows

When angels gather close to you

Whispering secrets of love

How to find

The way to live

Open to the depths

Of your heart?

"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.
