The Way

February 7, 2023
The Way ~ Photo by Patrice

Knowing how
Does not make it seem

The easy way 

The way
To get it done 

The way
It’s always been 

Choice is yours 

The path has been
Trodden by many 

That you
Personally
Haven’t known nor seen 

Making it no better
Only

The way for you 

It seems.

Birds Fly In

February 6, 2023
Birds Fly In ~ Illustration by Patrice

Birds fly in, then fly out
Seeds are there, then gone
They’re out.

I’m sitting here
Watching, watching
All the goings-on
Go about. 

They don’t know
I’m here 
They don’t care
About my life, my goings-on. 

Cause they have
Their own life to live
Like sing, find seeds  
Fly about.

Nothing Really Happens Til

Nothing really happens
Til something moves
Takes control.

Nothing really happens
In the morning bright
Til eyes open
Letting in streaming sunlight.

Nothing really happens
Til words are spoken
From a mouth open
Speaking things we need to know.

Nothing really happens
Til feet move
Heeding the mind’s signals
And control.

Nothing really happens
Til we let Mother Nature
Let nature have the reins
And we let go.

Do I

February 2, 2023
Do I ~ Pastel Art by Patrice

Do I do it 
Or
Leave it alone?

The question is asked
And
I know 
The decision to be made
The answer given 
Is
My choice
My choice alone.

Which way
Will I go 
Which one will I leave
Leave
All alone?

Tender Is

Tender is the life
I live.

Tender is the heart
That beats
Kindness to the world.

Tender is the soul
Who knows compassion
Gives.

Yes 
Tender is.

No More

No More ~ Photo by Patrice

No more
To
Tell

No more
To
See

Moving on
Not
Looking back

Nothing there

Nothing
Of
Quality.

I Haven’t Been

January 30, 2023
I Haven't Been ~ Photo by Patrice

I haven’t been
As close as I should have been
It seems life has dealt me
a heavy load
A load I think I need to carry. 

Please, if you could
Let me see where 
I can lay down
All that isn’t necessary. 

Giving me
The time, the space
To be the one
You need, I need to be
For an blessed eternity.

Our Best

We look to do our best
To see the best
And live a life of no unrest.

Sometimes it works
Sometimes we fail.

But in the end
we live, we love
We follow our destiny’s trail.

Secretly

Secretly ~ Illustration by Patrice

Secretly
I say the words needed to see
The goodness in bad
The needs needed
To be
Loved and lovingly.

Secretly
I say these words
With
Clarity.

Time Bends

January 25, 2023
The Hours Drip Away ~ Photo by Patrice

Time bends

Hours drip away 
Different 
In all places of the world 
The universe 
Galaxies swirling. 

Time bends

Somewhere it’s tomorrow 
Today 
Is gone 
It’s already been. 

Then there’s 
Yesterday 
Can we go back 
See it happen, happen 
All over again? 

Time bends
