When I Look Outside

May 29, 2017

When I look outside
My heart does beat
The pressure rise
A world there where all
That breathe must survive.

Beauty, radiance
Seen crystal clear
Waiting for
Another bloom
To appear.

Times can be tough
Rarely an easy ride
Still all enjoy
They do survive.

This I see
When I look outside.

Sadness Fails

Sadness fails 
Crashes 
Hear
The wails. 

Monster crawls 
Full of regret 
Finally getting 
What he should
Get. 

No remorse 
Pity none 
Turn the page 
Forget
The rage. 

Sadness can
No more 
Be part of
Hate.

Cold And Freezing Rain

May 25, 2017

Deep Freeze ~ Photo by Patrice

Cold and freezing rain
Falls from the sky
Falls
Taking no blame.

Only pours it’s heart out
Letting drops fall
Again and again
In cold, freezing rain.

Delicately
I embrace thee

Softly
I caress thee

While with my whole heart

I unconditionally
Love thee.

I Haven’t Found The Reason

Found the reason - Photo by Patrice

I haven’t found the reason
Haven’t found the why
Still looking for the cause
And time is passing by.

The Smell Of Lilacs Ebbs And Flows

Lilacs ~ photo by Patrice

The smell of lilacs ebbs and flows
Over my senses
Taking me back in time
When life was slow
And in pastures green
Children laughing, playing
Running past the stream.

Sweet scented lilacs are my time machine.

Your Sweet Soul

May 18, 2017

Diva and Lise Illustration ~ Illustration by Patrice

When your sweet soul
Touches me
I’m just in ecstasy
No light shines
As bright
Nor does the blue sky
Lie
When telling me
How you too
Are in love
In love with me.
~ Patrice
