I Have Seen

Girl and Dog at the Beach ~ Photo by Patrice

I have seen you are with me
You have been my sole companion
On this trip, this journey.

Never alone, my heart, my soul
Feel your gentle breath

At peace, I am feeling
Your hand in mine leading

Butterfly Flutters

Butterfly and Flowers ~ Photo by Patrice

Butterfly flutters
Breathing in sunlight
Going from left
To right
Landing on a flower
That feeds just right.

Beauty encompasses
Wings in flight
Staying still
Only a second
To take a taste
Of the drink of life.

Sorcerer Functioning

Morning Mist ~ Photo by Patrice

Sorcerer functioning
Beyond the depths
No one knows nor accepts
The magnificence held
Then released
Because of you
And yes
Because of me.

Sorcerer held to the soul
Grasping, breathing life
Where no one goes
End of nothing
Knows no bounds
Stepping lightly upon the ground
Soaring heavy beneath the skies
Swimming sweaty before my eyes.

Sorcerer functions
Knowing no bounds
Living with us
On hallowed ground.

Feel The Breathing

Feel the breathing
Breathless breathing
All the way down to my toes
Feel the breathing all the way
Back up to the top.

Feel the beauty
As it goes down again
Then back up to the top
Please let it continue
Please don’t let it stop.

That breathless beauty
As it rises once again
All the way from my toes
Back up, back up
To the top.
~ Patrice
