My Heart Soars

Riding Waves of an Ever-changing Tide ~ Photo by Patrice ~ part of the 6 Word Photo Essay Exhibition, BMFA Arts Centre, Collingwood October 4th to November 1st/17

My heart soars, my heart rides
Waves of trusting love
Felt in this world where I abide.

I Know

Simone's Shepherd ~ Watercolour by Patrice

I know
The world goes round
I know what has been
Comes back around

I know my sorrow and my joy
All come and go
Leaving feelings
Sometimes I don’t want to know

Then again I know
What is now does not last
It comes to past then goes
As all the world does

This I know.

Where I Belong

Wire in Landscape ~ Photo by Patrice

All the time I wonder where I belong.

Maybe my soul knows
But it doesn’t say
And I wander along.

My heart filled with sadness
Wishing I knew
Where I do belong.

I Will Survive

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.

In my dream
I see fortune full of destiny
Mine to have
Mine to be
Let me begin living
This my dream
In that destiny
I see.

A House, A Home

September 28, 2017

Elaborate Birdhouse ~ Photo by Patrice

In the forest I found
A house, a home
So profound.

No windows to shed light
But a cozy home, a place for respite
Adorned with flowers pink and white
A bell to toll when someone
Strange comes lurking
Late at night.

A front door I can’t find
Yet welcome are all
Who poke their head inside.

May you see this house
So profound
May you enjoy all it has to give
There in the forest
This house, this home
That I found.
