Looking For

March 7, 2018

Costa Rican Raccoon ~ Photo by Brent

Hoping, looking
For a breathing space
To be in harmony
Living life as I know
I can and should be.

Trust me, trust you
Trusting the world
To be what I need
What I’m looking for
And that I seek.

Lost

Me and My Shadow - Photo by Patrice

Lost
In the midst of a crowd

Lost
Focus on what is just my job

Lost
In a world full of nothing sane

Lost
To my friends, my family

Lost
Everything dear to me

But
This I know

I’ve not lost me.

Outside Is Cloudy

Outside is cloudy
Barring, marring
My way
Help is at hand
But I can’t reach it
Something blocks
The way
Turning, trying hard
To make my way
To the destination
I know is here, is mine
I’m sure today
Just have to move
Push those clouds
Away.

I Know

October 4, 2017

Simone's Shepherd ~ Watercolour by Patrice

I know
The world goes round
I know what has been
Comes back around

I know my sorrow and my joy
All come and go
Leaving feelings
Sometimes I don’t want to know

Then again I know
What is now does not last
It comes to past then goes
As all the world does

This I know.

I Know

How
Do I know
The right is the way.

When
Will I be happy
Just to stay?

Now
Is the answer
Past has gone away.

Forever
Is never
This I know today.

When I Think

November 9, 2016

Vince's Border Terrier ~ Watercolour by Patrice

When I think
My heart, my soul
Believe the right will come
Will be bestowed.

When I think can’t think
About what could have been
Can’t speculate on how
It came about
What now has been.

When I think I open up
My heart, my soul
To the world’s best
The light that guides
That lets me hear
The way to go.

When I think all is done
My heart, my soul
Laugh and say
Don’t ever think the best is gone
Or all hope is dead.

When I think, I know
We will survive, we will grow
We will make a life
The envy of
My heart, my soul.

Something Grand

August 29, 2016

Diva and Lise ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

Lying in wait of something grand
Making no mistake
The heart is totally in command
As I listen to my soul who knows
That no one will ever love
As much as you and I
This I know
This I understand.
~ Patrice
