What Is?

August 15, 2019

Chickens and Eggs ~ Illustration by Patrice for the Educational Publisher, Ginn and Company

What is the cause? What is the effect?
What does it mean?

For hearts are broken, cities crumble
Crops decay
Lives destroyed.

And
In the midst of this

A sprout pops up, a giggle resonates
Thunder dissipates
Rain clears all filth away.

There is a God
There is a life
We will not disappear.

Sleepless Night

August 1, 2019

Study of hands and paint brushes ~ Illustration by Patrice for New Chalice Brushes

Sleepless night
Bringing early morning light
Restful peace eluding senses
Throughout the dark
The long, question filled night.

No answers come
Only questions filling, swirling
Round my exhausted mind
No time to sleep, to rest
To dream of better times.

Mighty

July 24, 2019

Diva and Lise ~ Watercolour & Pencil Art by Patrice

Hold the tender
In your hands
Bask in sunlight
Lighting all the land.

Never believe
Your life’s not worthy
For you are mighty
You are mighty grand.

So Long Ago

July 16, 2019

2 Friends ~ Watercolour by Patrice

So long ago
I wrote my lines of love for you
So long ago
I lived my life for you
So long ago
I found I didn’t know you
So long ago
I left, left before you left me too
So long ago, so long ago
I loved you.

Pull It All Together

July 4, 2019

Happy Convict ~ illustration by Patrice

Pull It all together
Make it your own
Smile in the face of danger
Never leave a lost soul
All alone.

Never Saw It Coming

Great Danes from Purina's Hall of Fame ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Never saw it coming
Didn’t know it would
Now have to accommodate
With everything I should.

Never chose the situation
Didn’t know I could
But will immerse myself
Make it all that I should.

Told

May 23, 2019

Foxy Painting ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

I’ve been unusually bold
Saying things
maybe should
Not be told.

My heart does laugh
The secrets out
Its been told.

But then again
My mind does know
Repercussions come
From places
Yet untold.
