The Cycle – Flash NonFiction – Life Learn Repeat

Life Learn Repeat


Live Laugh Love





I’m not sure where this came from, just a pattern of thoughts in the wee hours of the night. I think what I was trying to convey is emotions we experience and lessons we learn in life we take with us into the next life. But lessons aren’t always learned. Perhaps we get them right after a try or two?


Ego bruised,

Spirit falls.


Heart breaks,

Soul hurts.


Compassion heals,

Faith renewed.


Lessons learned,

Search forgiveness.


Life teaches,

Creating growth.


Aging and wisdom,

Death and rebirth


Try again.


Love encouraged,

Lifts esteem.


Heart full,

Happy within.


Have compassion,

Spread kindness.


Teach goodness,

Open heart.


Speak positive,

Smiling words.


Aging fulfilled,

Death and rebirth.

  1. Lovely, Debby. In the wake of increasing violence and heartbreak, practicing kindness is more urgently needed. I especially like these lines: Have compassion, Spread kindness . . . which you constantly broadcast here. Here’s to teaching goodness with an open heart. <3

    1. Thanks so much Marian. It came to me when I was reading something that made me think of the afterlife and life lessons. They say that those who go through life and don’t learn their life lessons must come back and do a repeat. <3

  2. Ohhhh, yes. You got it just right. xo

    1. Thanks Pam. 🙂 xx

  3. It’s funny how those random thoughts something end up pithy. Nicely written, Deb.

    1. Thanks Jacqui, so true! 😉

  4. A lovely message, Debby, even if you did think of it in the middle of the night when you should have been sleeping.

    1. Thanks Robbie. 🙂 x

  5. Great random thoughts Debby transformed into something that we can all live by. ♥♥

    1. Thanks Sal. We sure can <3 xx

  6. Debby, this is the circle of life for sure. WE all have much to learn on the path to enlightenment. Glad to be part of your world, Sis. <3

    1. Aw thanks Colleen. Ditto my friend. <3

  7. Beautiful, Deb. I think ~ at least I hope ~ at some point we finally do complete the lessons we’ve chosen to learn. I envision a future lifetime when all lessons are behind me and I incarnate simply to enjoy all the pleasures Mother Earth and a physical form have to offer 🙂 ♥

    1. Thanks T. I’m with you. It can get tiring repeating and not learning. A nice cycle simply to enjoy life would be just lovely. Amen to that. <3 xxx

  8. That’s so cool, Debby. What a different post from you. I love the idea of cycles, and we see them everywhere, don’t we… in the micro and macro and through eternal time. <3

    1. So true Diana. Life is a cycle. I have no idea where it came from but I was compelled to write it down. I actually had longer sentences and wanted to see what I could do with cutting them down to the bare bones of the message. Thanks for the kudos. 🙂 <3

  9. This is truly lovely, Debby! your insightful words made me think of this that somewhere, somebody said this: Live simply. Love seriously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. 🙂

    1. Wow! That was beautiful Carol. Thanks so much. 🙂 <3

    2. Beautiful post, Deb – and beautiful way to summarize the message Carol.

      1. Thanks so much M. 🙂 xx

        1. This is what it’s ALL about Deb. <3
          xx, mgh

          1. Yes it is M! 🙂 xxx

          2. For those like us, at least Deb. And thank goodness there are so many of us.

          3. Amen to that M. 🙂 xxx

  10. I love this, Debby! The things we come up with in the middle of the night. Nicely done!❤️

    1. Thank you Vashti. Sometimes I think the silent night is our best inspiration. 🙂 <3

  11. Very nice! Eloquence sometimes comes more in brevity than elaboration.

    1. Thanks John. And yes, sometimes, as they say, less is more. 🙂

  12. Wow…such beautiful and true words very nicely written Debby,…I love it!

    1. Thanks so much Carol. 🙂 xx

  13. Debby, I’m so happy you shared these early morning thoughts with us…often they are the most profound and true. Your words struck a chord with me, so moving and full of warmth. In a world of a whirlwind of activity, craziness your succinct summing highlights life, its full circular existence. Beautiful. Xx

    1. Thank you for your most beautiful comment. I’m so glad this resonated with you. <3

  14. Beautiful, Debby. I love your positive message. Your circle of repeated lessons is ever widening as we grow and we are continually dying and being reborn. Fantastic!

    1. Oh, thanks so much Molly. I’m glad to learn this resonated with you. We are always being reborn and hopefully, learning the lessons. 🙂

  15. Beautiful. “Death and rebirth. Repeat.” ? The cycle. (It may take some time, yes, but we do learn and grow. I believe that.)

    1. Thank you my microfiction writing friend! <3

  16. This is really lovely. There are days I have to check in and reset thoughts because they aren’t positive and are leading me astray. Your cycle resonates with me!

    1. Thank you so much Kate. Glad I could inspire you a little. 🙂

  17. That’s so lovely, Debby. You may not know where it came from, but I’m guessing from the wisdom of your beautiful soul.

    1. Thanks Norah. It must have come from the depths somewhere, and glad I caught it. 🙂 x

  18. That was beautiful, simple word with a lot of power to make the reader think. Thank you for sharing with us D.G.!

    1. Thanks so much Joan for reading and for your lovely comment. 🙂

  19. You’ve captured well these phases, Debby. I truly believe it is just like this. Yes, thank you for sharing with all of us. xo

    1. Thank you so much Lana. 🙂 xx

  20. Thank you for buckets of affirmation. For me, it’s also important to embrace my darkness. If I try to overlay grief, anger, etc. or skirt around them, they come back to bite me in the butt. It’s about comforting and mothering the parts that hurt and are neglected or banned. Thank you for buckets of affirmation. Repeat.

    1. I love that Elaine – comforting the parts that hurt. We must experience the process before resolution in order to learn. 🙂

  21. Sometimes the most insight comes when we least expect it! I am thankful you put the words into this post and shared it with us ♥

    1. Thank you sweet Christy <3

  22. What a beautiful post Debby. I am with you on compassion. kindness, forgiveness…

    1. Thanks Brigid. If everyone could get on board with the sequence of life, it could change the world. 🙂 x

  23. I am currently reading the Seat of the Soul. So, this post really resonated with me.

    1. Thanks for dropping in Bernadette. And now I must check out ‘the Seat of the Soul’. 🙂

  24. Beautiful, Debby. You sure are an inspiration and spread positivism and the desire of reflection with your words.

    1. Thanks so much for your most lovely comment Liesbet. 🙂 x

  25. I find fascinating your comment about taking experiences and learnings into the next life. I’ve heard that before and need to spend more time with that concept. I love the poem; it beautifully speaks to the essence of life. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks so much Ann. I was told by a spirit medium a few years ago, when she was talking about my mother before she passed, that my mother hadn’t learned her life lessons in this life and that until they are learned they must come back and repeat. That’s would spurred this poem. 🙂

  26. Hope you catch your breath this year-end, Deb. Merry Christmas.

    1. Hi Diana. Thank you so much. Merry Christmas to you and yours. 🙂
