Breath and life

Breath will breathe me if I let it

Life will live me if I just

allow life its passage forward

no longer closing and locking the doors

bolting them from inside

There was a time I needed to hide

from the faces that showed no ounce of care

from the judgments that seemed to come out of

such ignorance

and lack of awareness

And now I see I saw an underlying truth

but still it was not complete proof

of a loveless world

And as it was

it was my own heart that lay

breathless in my chest

for want of connection

with my inner self





I looked to you

until I knew for sure

you could not see me

And so then I felt my way with blind eyes

towards someone who saw me true

Lucky me to find them

There was a reason and so I closed to life

for a while

but now

well deep inside my soul I feel these petals

unfolding as I take the risk

of reaching for your hand

and moving forward

And so I open my heart to this flow

of the ocean of life

that wants carry me forward

on a new wave

in a new way

on a new path

with each brand new day

"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.
