Imagine Today Is Your Last Day

Imagine
Today is your last day.

What would you say?
Where would you go?
What would you see?

Would it be beauty
Or misery?

I don’t know
Can’t see
But hope I’d make it
The best day to last me
An eternity.

When You See Myself

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

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

Travelling Down A No Return Road

October 6, 2017

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.

Not mine to wonder why.

I Did Not See

I did not see
I did not know
The courage inside I’d have to show.

A Hummingbird Came

September 8, 2017

Hummingbird and Feeder ~ photo by Patrice

A hummingbird came
To my window yesterday
She pleaded and begged
Me not to put away
That feeder which fills
Her each, everyday.

She needs calories
To fly away
On an epic journey
To warm, hot lands
Far far away.

Maybe tomorrow
She’ll leave
Before the snow flies
And the leaves
Are deceased.

So now, today
She pleads
Fill it up, leave it be
Help her get ready
For her long, long
Epic journey.

See me
I am here.

See me
I must not fear
You see.

See me
In all I be
See me.
