dreaming in the time of phantoms

Dreaming in the time of phantoms

your soul became the prisoner of your mind

no broken shards of self left to find

among the wreckage of broken lives

and shadows that haunted you

Here amid the ancestral hallways

your soul hovers

lured by the call of a drowning siren’s song

whose chorus repeat and repeats

on an infinite loop

coiling its

meandering pathway through your inner body

ancient pain resonates

beneath the cover of bones

of love one’s passed

unknown to your kin

But when one is born

who senses the presence of these ghosts

haunting may lead

to healing

even as the call of phantoms

takes time to loosen its hold

For there are spirits who will not rest

until the suffering of the dead

finds recompense

within the lives of those

whose soul hears

the summoning cry

the call of phantoms

"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.
