So Divine

Seek and you shall find
Heaven, heaven
Oh so divine.

Lose and you are lost
To wander in a quandary
So complex no ending
Will be yours or mine.

But in between
Live a life free and joyful
And the universe will
Come together
To combine, both worlds
So divine.

Don’t Let The World Cheat You

Don’t let the world cheat you
By not telling the truth
As known it to be.

Let not the hidden monsters be
The ones controlling
Your thoughts, your actions

No, tell them to go to Hell
And settle there forever
Forever more.

Let The Horns Sound

❤ Happy Valentines Day ❤Doris' Dogs Painting ~ Watercolour Pet Portrait Art by Patrice

Let the horns sound
the sky cry
words of love now
and in
the bye and bye.

Let arms embrace
the soul that gives life
holding up for all to see
the future
so clear, so bright.

How has it happened? Where will it go?
– No answers –

 I really don’t know.

Who Knows Or Cares

Who knows or cares
What happens across the world
Shrouded in despair.

All should know, all should care
Cause what happens elsewhere
Will eventually be here.

We need to care

Cursed Snow

Winter Road ~ Photo by Patrice

Cursed snow falls
Blanketing life with a dirty white
Melting in spring revealing
No more than everything
Cursed snow.

Cursed snow blows
Filling all nooks and crannies
Whistling round corners
Blowing white, blowing blind
Cursed snow.

Oh My Heart, My Heart

Trashed Feeder ~ Photo by Patrice

When the world fell apart
I was filled with despair
Oh my heart, my heart
No other saw or moved
To employ saving grace
All was destroyed
Oh my heart, my heart.

Then the sun shone
The rains came
My heart heard
A sweet, sweet refrain
Crowds rejoiced, laughed
Coming close to heaven
And my heart sang
Oh my heart, my heart
Once again.
