You’re Not The One

You're Not The One ~ Photo by Patrice

I know you’re not the one 
I’m supposed to be. 

I’m the one I need to be 
in my heart, my head. 

All things I do 
that’s who I’m suppose to be. 

You’re but someone 
who accompanies me.

Need To Find

Need To Find ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

Need to find 
So desperately
The source of happiness 
All things that give life 
Making a life 
So divine 

May I forget 
May I need not
For I’ve found the beauty and joy
In this life 
That’s my life 
Of course.

The World Spins

Last used Feb. 17/22

The world spins 
it turns round 

Bringing beauty 
to those that

Their hearts with kindness 
all things 
that in this world 
do abound.

My Heart Churns, It Doesn’t Beat

My Heart Churns, It Doesn't Beat  ~ Photo by Patrice

My heart churns, it doesn’t beat 
Thinking of the last time 
The last time
We would meet. 

I didn’t understand
You were sad 
Saying words that changed 

My love, my heart 
All things 
Near and far in this land. 

My heart churns, it doesn’t beat 
I hear it cry 
As all alone
I stand.

Please make the world
a better place 
one with not only beauty
loving, caring grace. 

Let no one be left behind 
hurt or disgraced 
keep loving all things
as you would want yourself 
loved and embraced.

My heart goes out to the the people and their families
that lost their lives on this day one year ago.


Loyalty Is Something

Loyalty Is Something ~ Photo by Patrice

Loyalty is something
We all need 
No questions asked, no what ifs 
None of that. 

When the world goes
Full round 
It makes sure
Is right 
All is above ground. 

That’s when
I see 
My loyalty is to 
The earth
All creatures, all things 
Including me.

Courting Life, Fleeing Death

February 24, 2021

Courting Life, Fleeing Death ~ Illustration by Patrice

Courting life, fleeing death
Time passes
Taking no regard for
The rest.

Holding close, pushing aside
All things
I love, despise.

In tomorrow
The world may change
Leaving everything
Just the same.

A World Most Divine

December 9, 2020

A World Most Divine ~ Photo by Patrice

I seek to find
the world
in a place divine

No hatred
ever creeping slime

Caring places all
on the pedestal of sincere
and right

Full of joy
cuddling thru the night

This is where I want to be
this is how
all things should turn

A place I’ll seek, I’ll look
I’ll find
in a world most divine.

No One Hopes

No One Hopes ~ Photo by Patrice

No one hopes disaster strikes
nor are they sure
things will turn out right.

But they do their best
to make things better
trying to see
the good in all things
good, bad or just alright.

The Caged Bird

February 7, 2020


The Caged Bird ~ Photo by Patrice

The caged bird flies
Deep into brilliant
Blue, blue skies.

The caged bird cries
Songs of lilting love
Her sweet voice sings
Of beauty, freedom
All things.

The caged bird dies
In the midst of bars holding
Holding her in.

No soaring in blue skies
Nor lilting love songs sung
For this was only a dream
Dreamt in
A dark night long.
~ Patrice
