The Lush Green Of Summer

July 23, 2021

The lush green of summer
Is contentment in lazy, hot days
Brief showers of warm shimmering
Summer rain.

Squirrels scurry away
Hummingbirds drink all day
Sun shinning bright in a clear blue
Summer sky.

All is right
As I lie
My eyes watching summer drift by.

Clouds Boil Black

July 21, 2021
Clouds Boil Black ~ Photo by Patrice

Clouds boil black across the sky 
hiding goodness, laughter 
beneath an unforgiving land 
the sun can’t shine nor rivers flow 
there is no time for kindness to be bestowed.

Maybe tomorrow 
or
the day after that 
brightness and laughter 
will replace all this awful crap.

Curiously Wondering

Curiously Wondering
What is to be 
What will become of my world 
My life
In the years to come
To be. 

Will I grow old  
Hair turned white 
Or
Just go to sleep 
Forever
One night? 

Questions asked 
Answers
I don’t know
Time is the only one 
That
Really knows.

A Robin Lays

A robin lays a thousand eggs 
only some come to fruition 

Optimistic, she builds again 
this time, she’s sure 
she’ll see a thousand grow 

Fulfilling her ambition.

Heaven Help The World Understand

Heaven help the world
Understand
There is no tomorrow
If we don’t stand and
Let nature be around.

We alone cannot supply
Our food nor make rain
Come pouring down.

Understand
We are but a small dot
In a world
Simply
Spinning round.

A Life Full

July 14, 2021
A Life Full ~ Photo by Patrice

No one lives a life full of anger, strife
nor
do they live in unprecedented peace 
a nondescript life. 

Somewhere between, somewhere 
we live 
our own beautiful
personal life.

What Have I Done

What have I done 
and 
where will I be 
in
a year
decade 
century

Will I know 
know
the time to let go 
to let be 

Will these answers
come
in a rush of clarity 
or 
quietly while I sleep 

peacefully.

The Heart Is A Treasure

July 9, 2021

Saluki ~ Watercolour by Patrice

The heart is a treasure
Hopefully, never to be seen
It guides, beats life in a body
Where she is queen.

The mind may be king
But the heart, she is queen
Without her
The mind can’t do anything.

Giving life, birthing life
Holding life in between
No one lives a life without a heart
Hopefully, never to be seen.

I Haven’t Been

July 8, 2021

I haven’t been 
the one to love

I haven’t been

I haven’t been 
the one to cherish

I haven’t been

I haven’t been
no matter what you say 

I know

I know the truth 
I know 

I haven’t been.

Hold Me Close, Hold Me Tight

July 7, 2021
Hold Me Close, Hold Me Tight ~ Photo by Patrice

Hold me close, hold me tight 
thru the long day
into the darkest
darkest night. 

Let no one come to harm 
me or mine 
let the world turn quietly 
without any
any crime. 

This I pray, this I wish 
that you hold me close 
hold me tight
with all your gentle
gentle might.
