Love has wings

Love has wings

A sense of life that breathes its healing breath

Through me

And in the air surrounding me

Flight of the birds reminds me of this

And that my deepest lessons are

Trust

Compassion

Surrender

And letting go of the burdens of the past

To rise

Even as the wounded parts

Hidden deep inside

Reveal themselves

And we see the multiple betrayals

Is there also a way to find the larger view?

As a child all we could do was long

For connection

We needed for our very survival

Our parent’s attunement, nurture

Guidance and protection

And yet so often

They turned away

Or we knew only the haunting echoes of the distance

A numbing to our soul

There is a river that flows through our hearts

Feeding on life’s blood

Are we not also a part of the earth

And moon and stars?

It seemed for far too long

I gazed from afar

On an unfeeling universe

When all the time the fire that died

Really could only be rekindled from deep inside

So now I will draw closer to it

There is a warmth here growing inside me

That speaks of love

There is an understanding dawning here

That only grows in love

There is a healing here

That often only arises after the burning away

Which clears our soul for freedom

For release from a prison of bondage

Of feelings and pains that only ever were

Impersonal

"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.
