Let us not talk of sadness

Let us not talk of sadness

You say

Let’s put it behind us

And turn away

Towards the bright and present sunlight

And yet

Is there not

Something to be said

For the healing power of moonlight

For the softness of that glow

Not as sharp and immediate


If full to the brim

An overflowing cup

Of sorrow?

There is a stream I sense

Moving on within

And a healing bank we sit upon

Watching the waters flow

Today I cannot speak

Of tomorrow

Sadly for years it seemed

An unreconciled past

Lapped daily at the torn edges

Of my consciousness

So now if I cry sometimes

Will you just let me be

For a while

Until the process is spent?

For God knows

In this life

There is so very little we control

And often the deepest strength lies

Not in denying the flow

But letting it carry us on

Toward an unknown

Destination tomorrow

"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.
