I Look Out

May 17, 2021
I Look Out ~ Photo by Patrice

I look out on the earth 
and see
things going on their way. 

Birds sing, flowers bloom 
bees fly
pollinating all they can 
they try. 

How can I not see beauty 
beauty
there in front of me? 

Thank the Lord 
for you see, he has done this 
all this magnificence 
all this beauty.

No Matter What Happens To Me

December 12, 2019

 

Lion and Rhino Standoff ~ Pastel Art by Patrice

No matter what happens to me
the world will turn on into its destiny
flowers will bloom, bees be busy
nothing matters except the going
the moving from what has
to what will be.

Save your breath for breathing
your words to speak adoration
of the heaven that has given all
just for you
asking nothing in return
only wanting to be.

So Cool Today

Chickadee on Feeder

So cool today a chickadee came
To where the feeder should be 
She looked and looked 
Then took a flight around
Just to check no seeds were hidden
Near or on the ground. 

It’s only August, too soon for seeds 
Flowers bloom in all their majesty
But honestly, look closely  
I see them shivering
Shaking in the breeze.

I Come To Be

August 2, 2018

Lazy Summer Days ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

In the morning I come to be
In my joyous place laughing, happy
All as it should be.

As a mourning dove gives it’s plaintive call
Cars pass knowing nothing of my life
Not at all.

Birds sing, squirrels jump from branch to branch
On the hunt for the perfect breakfast,
Dinner, lunch.

Flowers bloom, waving petals in a quiet breeze
While a fly buzzes, irritating for sure
But still a life that lives, that breathes.

Precious Little

Precious little
Comes to mind
When I hold the world
So divine.

Precious little
Crosses my mind as flowers bloom
Streams run wild
Mountains are so fine.

Precious little
Is on my mind
I can’t decide whether to run away
Relish or to hide.

Precious little
Is mine
Mine to decide.

When Happiness Comes

February 3, 2015

When happiness comes to me again
When flowers bloom and my heart feels
Like its only ten.

Then, then is when joy will leap
My soul will cry
Love is here and none will die.

When happiness comes to me again.
