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

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…

Let Me Lift Up My Soul

August 7, 2018

Old Car ~ Photo by Patrice

Let me lift up my soul
My heart, my eyes
To the bright cerulean sky
Let no heart beat
Without a steady beat
No eye cry for a unbeknown
Love that’s died.

Let my feet walk, run
In rhythm with the flowing sun
Shade my head
With kindness, courtesy
Feel no dread
As my arms embrace
The living grace that surrounds
All living.

Seeking not
A world of anguish
But living
Living without knowing
Sadness, pity
There I’ll live
With the upmost dignity.

Rottie Pup and Fawn ~ Watercolour Illustration by PatriceHold the precious close
Make no mistake
The heart is needed
To cover all the hurts
That the silly head
Feels approach.

Deep In Your Soul

March 30, 2018

Hollyhock in Spring ~ photo by Patrice~ Photo by Patrice

Deep in your soul
Deep in your heart
A thought stirs
Reaching up.

Change the world
Change what you receive
Change what you’ve got.

No heart weeps alone
No mind holds just one thought
Seek the friend that you had
Be alright with the differences
You’ve got.

Miracles don’t just happen
Or are tragedies sought
Do the best you can
Cause your heart and soul
Are all you’ve got.
~ Patrice
