Thinking About The World Today

July 29, 2020

Golden in Trouble ~ Illustration by Patrice for Dogs In Canada Magazine

About the world today
About all the people who have
Passed away.

Most not their fault
A virus
A plague raced thru
Their lives away.

Not gladness
Is the atmosphere
In this
Our world today.

Combine All You Got

Combine all you got
Leave no room regretting not
Challenge the atmosphere
Just to hear the echo flowing back
Full of goodness none deny.

Then add it up
Trust it’s the sum of what you’ve got.

Beat Myself Up

Beat myself up
Curse the way
That got me here.

Need to let up
Need to be happy
That I’m living, existing
With breath to breathe
In this atmosphere.

Forget the bad, the negative
And the sad
Seeing only pleased
And grateful inside of me.

Forgive me and thee
Forgive and live
Live here
On the right side of happy.

Snow Is Blowing Once Again

January 27, 2014

First of  Winter Road ~ Photo by Patrice

Snow is blowing once again
Spewing doubt of whether
A heart will beat and families meet
In this world or after.

Sadness is a trait
Carried on an atmosphere
That makes us feel so small
Full of heartache, heartache
Is what we feel us all.

Thru the cold may we flourish
Someday in the warmth
Of sunshine of the sun
Share laughter with family
And all friends
No sorrows or past regrets
Just pleasure at its best.

So, may snow blow love
Far into spring
Caressing thru a summer
That’s falling into fall.

Thats, that’s what we hope for
Even have the nerve to request
Oh yes, that would be the best
For us all.

Seriously Laughing, Ridiculously Crying

Seriously laughing, ridiculously crying
Moving thru the atmosphere.
There is no denying this is where
I have no fear.  ~ Patrice

We Are Here And Everywhere

August 21, 2012




We are here and everywhere
We shall care and shouldn’t dare
All that lives within our atmosphere.

They live here as we do
And help us through all
This heavy burdened stratosphere.

We should care and treasure us
That we must for what else
Is there here or anywhere?
~ Patrice
