Snow Flies

December 3, 2018

Snow Storm ~ Photo by Patrice

Snow flies
And we answer
Why? Why?

Blizzards blow fierce white
Changing darkness
Into a brilliant seeing night.

Cold with icicles
Dripping down
Covering a frigid, frozen ground.

Rivers run underneath
A covering of ice and snow
Sometimes more than a foot deep.

We live thru this
We
We do exist.

Can I Venture To The Past?

Can I venture to the past?
Relax and enjoy things seen
Fix what wasn’t right
Move forward
To this time I live in now
Confident
My heart will no longer hunger
For what has been and passed.

Can I?
Dare I venture to the past?

Then I heard the calling voice say

Believe in yourself, believe today
Believing is the only way.

When I Think Of What I’ve Done

November 28, 2018

Yehudi Menuhin ~ Illustration by Patrice

When I think of what I’ve done
I wonder how this could be?

I’m a mortal, no one special
But still I see this beauty
Coming from within of me.

Then I realized
That God has given me
All that I am
All that I can be.

He does this with us all
The sunset, the whispering tree
Even that nasty insect
Which bit me on my knee.

God is within us all
And I’m glorified to know
He’s forever within of me.

Seeing Another World In My Eye

November 27, 2018

Seeing another world in my eye
Looking out
upon the landscape wide
Holding all in wonder
Wondering why
I came to be in this magnificent world
I blink
Blink and can’t believe my eyes.

Why Not Understand

November 23, 2018

3 Rotties ~ Illustration by Patrice

Why not try to understand
All the confusion swirling round
Like a crazy marching band.

Don’t know where, don’t know why
But somehow I need to cry
Release the hurt, set free the sigh.

Move beyond the crazies
Then maybe, maybe
Understand the reason why.

Let My Heart Understand

November 22, 2018

Last used Nov. 22/18

Let my heart understand
The world is open
All is at my command.

Breathe in and out
Feeling magnificence
All about.

Join the world
Bow at her feet
Knowing.

Knowing that living
In accordance to the ancient ways
Nothing is impossible

You’re already on your way.
