I Heard The Wild Goose Call

I heard the wild goose call
I heard her plaintive tone.

I bowed my head in honour
Of all those left
Left alone.

On the field of war and anger
In the battle
No one wins alone.

I heard the wild goose call
Come bring your brave soldiers home.

My Heart Does Cringe

November 9, 2022
My Heart Does Cringe ~ Art by Patrice

My heart does cringe 
My soul weeps.

Happenings in the world
Are full of sadness, anger
Misery so deep.

Did we get here? 

Can we leave?

Questions – Answers
No one knows
No one speaks.

I Am A Survivor

I Am A Survivor ~ Photo by Patrice

I am a survivor 

I survived hatred, anger  
that made me a victim

I am a survivor

I came through
growing into someone
who understands how it happened

I am a survivor

Only hurt, remorse for those
who inflicted that hatred
that anger

I am a survivor

Have moved forward
build a life full of love, generosity
no hatred, some anger

I am

I am a survivor.

Happy ~ Illustration by Patrice

Make it happy 
make it be something
you take home 
giving joy and pleasantries. 

No strife or anger 
nor what ever could be 
just happy, happy as can be.

No More I Say

No More I Say ~ Photo by Patrice

No more I say 
No more will I be angry
I’ll stay in the blessed day
away from dark clouds
ones that carry sadness, sorrow
making heartache
fill the days of tomorrow.

I’ll live the blessed, the right way
holding all that’s loved 
in gentle tenderness
no need for revenge or anger
not today nor tomorrow.

I Watch The Squirrels Fight

I Watch The Squirrels Fight~ Photos by Patrice

I watch the squirrels fight 
edging out one another 
for a place at the feeder 
just another bite. 

there’s a truce 

a bitter fight 

a lone squirrel 
til he feels suffice. 

Birds keep their distance 
stay out of the fight 
they wait their turn 
a time when
all others have had their fill 

All’s quiet 

No more anger 

No more strife.

The Heart Is Cold

The Heart Is Cold ~ Photo by Patrice

The heart is cold 
Does not beat 
With love 

Just full of hate 
Anger, blatant lies 
Not love 

See it fester 
Boil over
Beating, beating
Not with love.

Rain Came And Washed Away

Rain Came And Washed Away ~ Photo by Patrice

Rain came
And washed away 
All the hurt, anger 
I felt

Leaving behind
Bright, refreshed
Ready to play 
I have 
Starting just today. 

May they stay with me 
All today 
Going beyond
Into tomorrow
Into everyday. 

This is my wish 
My dream, my hope 
When I see the rain 
Wash away
All the hurt, anger
I felt

I Seek And Find

I Seek And Find ~ Photo by Patrice

I seek and find 
A world full of happiness 
There I find. 

No sorrow, sobs 
Cries of destitute 
Nor does anger find a place
To prey. 

For in this world of magnitude 
My heart’s taken away  
My soul alive
Oh, how beauty thrives.

Hold Me Close

May 19, 2021
Hold Me Close ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

Hold me close, hold me tight 
Let me feel secure 
Throughout the darkest night. 

Let my tears disappear 
Feel safe in a land
Vacant of fury, anger  
And awful, awful fear. 

Hold me close, hold me tight 
~ Patrice
