A Little Mess Was Made

May 2, 2018

A little mess was made
And yet the consequences
Were not staged

They came in rolling waves
Bringing pain
Then peace

Breaking on the cheek
Grinding all the way
To aching, hurtful feet

Not sure what to do
Comfort, scold or
let be, let do

The consequences
A little mess is made.

My Heart Is Aching

June 28, 2016

Wild Roses ~ Photo by Patrice

My heart is aching
I know not why
Sleeping softly
I cry
And cry.

Remorse only
Not knowing why
My heart aches
As I cry.

Wind Blowing

November 26, 2014

Wind Damage ~ Photo by Patrice
Wind blowing
Thru the trees
Everything it sees.

Sparing none
Blowing all night
The morning sun.

Greets the day
All hard work
All blown away.

Nothing left
But clean up
And hold back

The sun will shine
Once again
Life will go on
Even if the wind
She does blow

Dear Sweet Ursa

October 17, 2014

My Ursa and me ~ Photo by us

Dear sweet Ursa is about to pass
Her love, her life has been such a large part
Of my life, my heart.

Don’t want her to go, she can’t stay
Her body’s broken
No more run, no more play.

My heart too is broken, shattered apart
Breaking to lose
This loving, loyal little rott.

I must let her go, let her pass
Her heart, her soul shall rest at last
With those already gone, already pasted.

I love you so, so hard to let go
I must, I must but this I know
You’ll live now forever
Deep inside my heart, beside my soul.

Hydro Out There Is No Doubt

November 18, 2013

Fallen Tree ~ photo by Patrice






Hydro out there is no doubt
Smash and crash
Is what the wind has been
Whining, howling across the span
Bending, breaking trees
Dashing dreams and all things
Seen, unseen.

Mutter, sputter does no good
Hydro out
As the onslaught marches
Destroying its way thru
Listen, listen to the howling wind
Crashing, smashing thru.
~ Patrice
