Strength ~ Photo by Patrice

Strength isn’t in power 
it lives and breathes 
in the heart
the head 
moving the rest with ease.

I See You Laughing

September 17, 2020

I see you laughing ~ Photo by Patrice

I see you laughing
Talking to me
Your heart
Your mind free.

It may be tomorrow
When we meet again
I look forward to
Whenever it is.

Til then
I’ll be my best
As I dream of that time
When I see you once again.

You Pick Me Up

When I fall
you pick me up
my life is saved

My heart
is picked up

Safe and serene
standing straight up
I feel your presence, I feel your love

And that’s when
I race
to another

who needs me
pick them up.

Kaboom, Kaboom

Mountain Goats - Photo by Patrice

Quietly, softly the breath intakes
Listening to the heart explodiate
Kaboom, kaboom.

The legs take their feet for a walk
While the arms hold close
Hands caressing the softness
Of love seen by the eyes
As the ears listen
To the quiet heart go
Kaboom, kaboom.


Feeling The Anger, The Pain

November 27, 2019

Broken Robin's Nest ~ Photo by Patrice

Feeling the anger, the pain
Of not being the answer
To what drains the life
From my world, my heart, my family
All that encompasses

Could it be tomorrow
When things change, answers answered
The world full of laughter, families together
And nothing, no feeling
That everything is circling
A filthy, dirty drain.

Dark And Dismal

Dark and dismal is not the way
Open up, laugh and sing
Chase the gloomy clouds away
Bask in the sun filtering thru
Release your heart
See the beauty coming

What To Do

March 26, 2019

Robins in Spring ~ Photo by Patrice

I read the lines, saw the words
But no thought came to mind
Had no idea what was said
No vision of what to do.

My soul was cold
My heart frozen over
My ears, my eyes
Knew not what to do.

My feet they left
Never knowing the answer
To the question asked
Never knowing what to do.

My Beating Heart

March 6, 2019

Wood Smiles and Sad ~ Photo by Patrice

My heart is heavy
She feels so old
So many stories
How many more
To be told?

She ticks and beats
She has survived
She seen joys
She has cried.

Blood fills
Pulses to
My mind, hands, feet
And back thru.

How many more thumps
Does she have
Not mine to know
Just glad I have her
I have
My beating heart.

Let Me Settle Down

Rock in Awe~ Photo by Patrice

Let me settle down
My anger now is very, very profound.

You took a life, meant nothing to you
Just something in your way
With a swipe, you took a life away
Didn’t miss a stride nor did your heart skip a beat
You went on like nothing bad marked your soul
Or was there blood on your saintly hands
You smiled, laughed, no trace upon your angelic face
Of the death someone has to face
A death you caused, you alone.

It may have been just a little creature
Living life in the space you called your own
You crushed the breath from that creature’s chest
You ground your shoe in the sand
Leaving no trace of a life
That may have been so grand.

Life is precious
Intertwined with all we see
Combined to grow, prosper alongside one another
Whether we walk, run, leap or crawl
You’re not alone nor can…

Dear sweet spirit take control
Guide my hand, my heart
And please my soul.
