Why I Think The Things I Do

May 14, 2020

Foxy Painting ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

I don’t know why
I think the things I do
Or why sometimes
They come true.

I do know my heart
Loves the way
Nature brings beauty
To me, to you.

To live in joy, laughter
Not thinking anything
Depressing
Or blue.

That’s why
I guess
I think the things
I do.

Why Haven’t I

September 23, 2019

Credit Union Blue Water Poster ~ Art by Patrice

Why haven’t I seen
Your heart open up
Your voice speak
Soft, lilting words

Why haven’t I known
The place where all go
To be safe and unhurt
Why haven’t I?

I don’t know why
I haven’t been able
To experience all
Of these things.

I do know they exist
And know
Someday I’ll see all these
Beautiful, wondrous things.

Don’t Know Why

March 27, 2019

Man in Waterfalls ~ Photo by Patrice

I don’t know why
The sky does cry
The wind wail
And the earth spin
Endlessly.

I don’t know why
I don’t know
Don’t know why.

I Thought

I thought of that
And now don’t know why.

I thought of this
And now I feel a need to cry.

I thought of things
And still didn’t feel a thing.

I thought so
And now I know I didn’t know
Anything.

Morning Doves And Evening Grosbeaks

February 6, 2019

Grosbeaks at the Feeder ~ Photo by Patrice

Morning doves and evening grosbeaks
Ever wonder why the names they got
What they seek?

And how come blue jays cry?

While chickadees speak
Crows caw?

Truth is, that too
We don’t know why.

Things Happen

December 12, 2018

Summer Torrent of Rain ~ Photo by Patrice

Things happen
I don’t know why
Placing me in places
Sometimes sad
Sometimes I even cry.

Then the heavens open up
Raining down
Blessings warm and bountiful
Covering everything
Everything all around.

Me, Myself and I

July 20, 2016

3 Rotties ~ Illustration by Patrice

Me, Myself and I
Together we go thru life
Me, Myself and I
Conquering strife, living life
Me, Myself and I
No one knows or been told that
Me, Myself and I
Can survive anything if we stand together
Me, Myself and I
Don’t know why life is this way but
We’ll live and love in a way,
Each and everyday
So there’ll be no remorse for
Me, Myself and I.
~ Patrice
