Pleasantly - Photo by Patrice

Pleasantly helping, pleasantly being 
the most my world
my life, myself
can be. 

There’s no better one to know
then me 
there’s nothing I want, desire 
except to be. 

The one who loves
cares and sees
beauty in all life and pleasantly being
all I can be.

Not All I Am About

June 9, 2014

Brittainy ~ Watercolour by Patrice.

My running is not all I am about
But it is what keeps me physically healthy, grounded and at peace
Without it, I will have no focus, no inner peace.

My writing is not all I am about
But from it, I feel whole, in touch with who I am spiritually
I feel a calm, a calm fulfillment.

My art is not all I am about
It’s what I need, what I feel called to do
A yearning, a desire, a challenge, an ecstasy
It is who I am. Who I desire to be.

But not all I am about.

My Father

My Father








He’d sit and watch the fire
Stoke the flames
As he listened to the game.
I wonder what was his desire
My Father.

Heaven Forbid

January 18, 2012

Heaven forbid
Tell me what I did
Not in a day
But a lifetime away
Away from all I see.
Help me understand
The stand that must be me.
Don’t measure or pace
Race to the end and feel
Feel the trend which becomes
All I cherish and desire
In a life filled with this desire.

This Is It

October 18, 2011

This is it.
Look around, appreciate and know you have made all this come about.
Without you, it would not exist.
Make sure it is good and what you and you alone desire.
This is it. ~ Patrice
