A Place

February 28, 2022
A Place ~ Photo by Patrice

I think the world has come
to 
a place 
of tremendous joy
or
deep sorrow 

Each step we take
will lead us
to
a place 
filled with happiness 
or
despair 

This place 
where I want to be 
is
not hidden 
but
open, right there 
in front of you 
of me 

Take the steps
you need 
to chose
the path to joy
this place
of
happy 

Tread not down 
the deep,
dark hole 
of
desperate agony 

This place 
I think I need 
I feel 
I see
I will be.

Deep Sorrow, Absolute Horror

January 6, 2016

In memory of the 43 race horses tragically lost in a  fire on Monday.

Deep sorrow, absolute horror
For fire has claimed lives
And ones who loved
Will never be the same
Smoke billowed, fire raged
Taking life, killing
Killing at such a savage pace
No hope, desperate loss
In a desparate place.

But see
See gentle souls rising
In the midst of raging fire’s rage
For though gone
Peace now, quiet time
Running freely in heaven’s place
Lost to the earth they have not lost
Nor never will
The loving race.
~ Patrice

My deepest sympathies to those that have loss so much. So sorry. So very sorry.
