Human animal

Human animals feel

And are driven by instinct

Hidden longings

Desire for nurture

A strong will to survive

Even if belied

The human animal

Does not fit ‘nicely’

Into the confining parameters of

Logic and reason

For the human animal

Is a complex and contrary beast

Beset by drives

That long ago became a mystery to

The mind

Not ever set apart from nature

Yet the human being

Longs to rise above it all

To become the

Supreme commander

Feeding on dreams of power

That sometimes become

Ultimately destructive

Nature contains the human animal

Surrounds us and binds us together

In cell

And bone

And skin

And tissue

The human animal is bound to

Both fall and rise

But in the end the power of entropy

Will ensure

The body of the human animal decays

And falls away

So let us hold fast to the soul

That keeps us in tune with all of these

Powerful instinctual drives

Of the human animal

"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.
