Birds Fly In

February 6, 2023
Birds Fly In ~ Illustration by Patrice

Birds fly in, then fly out
Seeds are there, then gone
They’re out.

I’m sitting here
Watching, watching
All the goings-on
Go about. 

They don’t know
I’m here 
They don’t care
About my life, my goings-on. 

Cause they have
Their own life to live
Like sing, find seeds  
Fly about.

Do I

February 2, 2023
Do I ~ Pastel Art by Patrice

Do I do it 
Or
Leave it alone?

The question is asked
And
I know 
The decision to be made
The answer given 
Is
My choice
My choice alone.

Which way
Will I go 
Which one will I leave
Leave
All alone?

Tender Is

Tender is the life
I live.

Tender is the heart
That beats
Kindness to the world.

Tender is the soul
Who knows compassion
Gives.

Yes 
Tender is.

No More

No More ~ Photo by Patrice

No more
To
Tell

No more
To
See

Moving on
Not
Looking back

Nothing there

Nothing
Of
Quality.

I Haven’t Been

I Haven't Been ~ Photo by Patrice

I haven’t been
As close as I should have been
It seems life has dealt me
a heavy load
A load I think I need to carry. 

Please, if you could
Let me see where 
I can lay down
All that isn’t necessary. 

Giving me
The time, the space
To be the one
You need, I need to be
For an blessed eternity.

Secretly

Secretly
I say the words needed to see
The goodness in bad
The needs needed
To be
Loved and lovingly.

Secretly
I say these words
With
Clarity.

My Friend

January 23, 2023
My Friend ~ Photo by Patrice

Do I know you 
Have you been 

My friend? 

Will I know that in times of trouble
I can count on you
Once more, once again? 

Questions, answers
I say, ask  
Over and over again 

Still 
I don’t know for certain
You really are 

My friend.
