Pleasantly helping, pleasantly being 
the most my world
my life, myself
can be. 

There’s no better one to know
then me 
there’s nothing I want, desire 
except to be. 

The one who loves
cares and sees
beauty in all life and pleasantly being
all I can be.

Did you see?
Did you see the beauty
Reigning all around me?

Did you see the magnificence
Holding me
Embracing me?

Did you see the soul
Who told me
I was loved unconditionally?

Did you see, did you see?

I Feel Your Presence

I Feel Your Presence ~ Photo by Patrice

I feel your presence  
Your breath softly
Falling in and out 

I hear your call 
Your mournful voice 
Reaching out 

I remember
Your presence here 
Now gone 

I miss you 
I miss you so 
My love 

You’re all 
I think about.

A Hummingbird Came

A Hummingbird Came ~ Photo by Patrice

A hummingbird came to my window 
not seen since 
in the fall 
when they all 
flew away. 

Sweet nectar she’s looking for 
needs right away 
hovering, looking in 
she tells me. 

Get it ready! 
Get it ready! 
Get it ready right away! 

The little hummingbird 
she’s flown such a distance 
from far 
far away. 

Now needs 
some sweet substance 
all the blooms 
on display. 

A hummingbird came to my window 
told me all this 
just this morning 
just today.

the feeling of giving 
giving love
needed to make

Tremendous it is

World Wildlife Fund’s

Run to Restore Nature

I’m participating in WWF’s Run to Restore Nature, and today is the first day!
I’m running 2.5 kms each day for the next 4 days, to raise funds to help create a world where nature and people thrive and live in harmony.
I’d really love your support to help me reach my fundraising goal of $75.00.
Every dollar raised helps to conserve species at risk, protect threatened habitats, and address climate change. 

Please Donate

When I Look Out To Sea

When I Look Out To Sea ~ Photo by Patrice

When I look out to sea 
I see you looking
looking back over
just at me 

The waves roll in
back out again 
bringing with them 
a message from overseas 
a message
you sent just for me 

In my thoughts I touch your lips 
say words of love 
then send them
on the wind 
over water, overseas 
to you with love 
just from me.

Lifting Up My Head

Lifting Up My Head ~ Photo by Patrice

Lifting up my head
my arms, my heart 
seeing all that could be 
seeing nothing 
that is 
empty, lost. 

Maybe tomorrow 
in the early morning light 
all the answers I seek 
will be before me 
holding me
with unprecedented love
oh so very tight.

Hear The Heart Beat

Hear The Heart Beat ~ Illustration by Patrice

Hear the heart
beat quietly 
the sound
goes thru each day 
to eternity 

My heart,
the heart continuously
life in the body 
sight to the soul 
for all to see 

Forever beating 
beating quietly.
