Ghost and a shadow

You will forever be for me

A ghost or a shadow

Hovering by

Always remembered

But never near enough to touch

The longing and memory of you

Will be with me every day

Even though sometimes

Much of the time

These longings and memoies

Will fall into forgetting

Like a heavy stone

That falls into a stream

There may always live inside of me

This ache

At times my heart will break

Open with the sadness

Of all you lacked the capacity to give

And today I realised

That for my heart

There may never be

An absolute healing

But never the less

Day by day I try my very very best

To make my peace

With all of this.

Where has your spirit gone? – Emerging From The Dark Night (

Published by: emergingfromthedarknight

"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.

  1. These lovely poetic lines are ringing tunes in my heart Deb…
    “These longings and memories

      1. I’ve had a very busy day Deb… starting this morning by helping out at a charity/fund raiser barbecue, and then to my Cafe for a coffee and cake, some grocery shopping on the way home, and now making Dinner…. and yes It’s dark and stormy here, starting to rain.. ((Hugs))

      2. It’s still very warm and muggy, and I think the rain has stopped. but my curried sausages were yummy, the leftover sausages from the Barbecue… Wow… I just got a message from the organiser of the barbecue, we ended up with a $1300 profit, a fantastic result.. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜€πŸŒ
