I Am Feeling Down

September 29, 2020

I Am Feeling Down ~ Photo by Patrice

I am feeling down and all alone
Feel my heart beat a lonesome tone
Crying, standing in the wake
Of not where I want to be.

Hoping the mists of sadness
Will disappear, leaving behind
A world bright and clear
Full of anticipation, happiness
Not this awful, nagging fear and sadness.

I Saw A Hummingbird Today

I saw a hummingbird today
Still here, hasn’t flown away
Cold nights must take a bite
Still here
Couldn’t believe my eyes
My ears.

A hummingbird flew
To the feeder so low
Thought of emptying
Sure all hummingbirds gone
Then there she was hovering
Sitting, sipping sweet nectar
In the cold rainy air.

Still here, hasn’t started
On her long flight
Sleeping thru, keeping warm
In the cold fall nights
Drinking sweet water
Filling up to embark
On a long, arduous flight.

Maybe today will be the day
She’ll fly away
Still
I saw a hummingbird
A hummingbird flew to the feeder
Today.

I Know You Know The Truth

September 24, 2020

 I Know You Know The Truth ~ Watercolour by Patrice

I know you know the truth
I know you’ve seen the way
Whatever happens
Happens in this day.

No ones’s at fault
No one to blame
Only glad the day has come
When we have the way.

The way to happiness
Living in explicit gladness
The way to save our souls
Each and every day.

Terrible Things Happen

September 23, 2020

Terrible Things Happen ~ Photo by Patrice

Terrible things happen
In terrible times
Suffer and subjugate
Seems to be the way of life
In this certainly
Not a nursery rhyme.

Will I persevere
Will I see the light?
Questions, answers
Not seen tonight.

Maybe tomorrow
I’ll find my way
Maybe then joy will be
The cloud I ride upon
Spiriting me away.

Holding On

September 22, 2020

Holding On

Holding on to memories
I shared with you

Some good, some bad
We danced in sync

In a dance of life
Just we two.

I Find My Heart Cold

September 18, 2020

Wicka ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

I find my heart cold
In charge of no life
Making no sound
Finding no life.

Lonely of course
Hardened and cruel
Seeking no justice
A master I’m sure
That is such a fool.

Sudden I hear
A kindness roar
Blood pulsing inside
Like opening a door.

For my heart is alive
Beating with life
Coursing with love
Creating a good life.

I See You Laughing

September 17, 2020

I see you laughing ~ Photo by Patrice

I see you laughing
Talking to me
Your heart
Your mind free.

It may be tomorrow
When we meet again
I look forward to
Whenever it is.

Til then
I’ll be my best
As I dream of that time
When I see you once again.

Today

September 16, 2020

Today ~ Photo by Patrice

Seething in the mist
Saddened by sorrow
Struggling to say
I don’t know why I let it effect me
Today.

Maybe tomorrow
Maybe later today I’ll feel better
I’ll let it go and celebrate
Everything sweet and beautiful
I experience just
Today.

Tic Tok Goes The Clock

Tic Tock Goes The Clock ~ Photo by Patrice

Tic tock goes the clock
Ticking time away
No hesitate
No wait, wait!

Time goes on
Thru night and day
The same time
The only time
Ticking time away.

A Hummingbird Came

September 14, 2020

A Hummingbird Came  ~ Photo by Patrice

A hummingbird came
he sat
on the the stair
his words were luscious
I knew he was there.

The beat of his wings
the flow of his heart
moved me to tears
I bowed down
I cried
I cried a lot.

For no more til spring
will I hear those sounds
as snow falls
baring down
on a land bleak
where
no hummingbird sounds.

Then
the snow will melt
the heavens wake
and
on his journey back
the hummingbird makes.
