Holy Smoke, Holy Crap, We Survived All Of That

August 4, 2015
Dufferin / Peel Area News, Weather, Traffic with Anne-Marie van Santen

Picture over Lake Huron sent to Anne-Marie van Santen by one of her page visitors.

Holy smoke, holy crap
We survived all of that.

Pouring torrent of driving rain
Wind hollering thru branches
Blowing here then there no refuge anywhere
Lightning strikes, thunder claps
A storm it is
Holy smoke, holy crap.

Then the rain slows down to a tickle
Leaves stand still, not a ripple
While overhead there is such a roar
Flashing light amidst yellow clouds glowing bright
Otherwise dark as night.

Over not soon enough so frightening to see
We wrap ourselves in blankets warm
Cause hydro off and we can’t deny
A storm came thru wrecked havoc all around
Now is gone, there’s not a sound.

We sit a day or two
In a blaring generator town
Waiting for the lights to come on
And we can once again communicate
With all of you.

Holy smoke, holy crap
We survived all of that.

My Heart, My Soul

My heart, my soul know the one
Changing it will not let it be undone
Feel it’s gentle touch like jasmine on the breeze
A sweet smell wafting through the air
Never letting me not be at ease
Without a care my soul will pull love up
Changing none as my heart becomes
Becomes that one.

Crusades Of Magnitude

July 29, 2015

Crusades of magnitude bringing forth attitude
Not seen since the life of you
Brought heart to a tortured world.

Bring it here, bring it near
Then we’ll see who needs
Who cares and who will succeed.

My transient dear show no fear
Show life filled with strife
Maybe struggle and tremendous gratitude.

That’s when you’ll live
When you’ll die and the rest of us
We will surely cry.

Many Regrets

July 28, 2015

Misty ~ Patrice's Watercolour ArtMany regrets
Lay weeping in my head
Many regrets
I just can’t forget.

Many regrets

Many regrets
Are with me still
Many regrets
As of yet.

Many regrets

My Future Seems Bright

Like the night, my future seems bright
Sparkling stars blinking
Radiating light.

No sacrifice is big enough to suffice
No heartache will replace the feeling
Deep within the night.

I can see my way so straight and clear
No darken path
Will I tread my dear.

The Name Of That Wonderful Person

Do you know the name
Of that wonderful person
The one that shared your life
Thru happiness and strife?

Always there, always
Always there to count on
Always there to turn to
In this stressful life.

No need to know the name
It will change for me or you
This person is the one
That is there whenever
You need them to be too.

I thank this person
With all my heart
As you should too
For without them in our lives
Whatever would we do?

Sitting Here Thinking

July 23, 2015

Big Sky ~ Photo by Patrice

Sitting here thinking
Thinking of things.

Not much happening
The morning is pleasant
As clouds drift across blue sky
And I hear birds sing.

Problems may be many
But this morning
I fear not a thing.

I’m just sitting here thinking
Thinking of things.
