Gentle And Kind

Diva & Lise Painting ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Gentle and kind
My soul holds my mind
Caressing softly.

Gentle and kind
I hear the words I need
So divine.

Gentle and kind
My soul is
My nurturing wine.

Read A Sentence

Starting Points in Math ~ Illustration by Patrice for publisher, Ginn & Company

Read a sentence
Write a word
Hold the past
Create the unheard
See the future
Make it real
Now in the present
Feel, feel.

When You See Myself

Happy Convict ~ illustration by Patrice

When you see myself
You see someone else
Not the one I want to be
But the one I let you see.

I will try to appear to be
The person who’s good for you
And most of all the best of me.

The world has come presenting

Showing what she’s made of
No excuses, no glorifying laude
Just the world made of

Travelling Down A No Return Road

First of  Winter Road ~ photo by Patrice

Travelling down a no return road
Going forward pass signs
On this winding, bending road
That tell me what’s ahead
Sometimes full of anticipation
Sometimes only dread.

Going forward
Not looking back
Not using a rearview mirror
To see behind
There’s no use in using that.

On the side of this my road
I’m passing beauty there
Just up to me to behold.

My salvation
May be at the end
Of this my own long road
But the journey to that place
Is up to me to unfold.

Waves of trusting love
Felt in this world where I abide.

I Will Survive

October 2, 2017

Photo by Mom and Dad

I will survive
I will breathe and be alive
I will rejoice
I will have a choice in decisions made
I will laugh and cry
I will live then die


I will
I will survive.
