Ideas Come

April 5, 2021
Ideas Come ~ Photo by Patrice

Ideas come 
sometimes they flow 
then
then sometimes
they stop. 

The page is blank 
not a thought, not anything
just a slate, a page
that’s clear. 

Then
then all of a sudden 
they flow 
in a rushing, gushing river 
that overflows. 

What a time, a place to be 
for it’s then I know 
I have ideas that will grow
and grow and grow.

You Haven’t Seen

You Haven’t Seen ~ Photo by Patrice

You haven’t seen
nor do you know
the treachery
I can, I will
bestow.

For what reason
frankly
I don’t know.

Bitter
black heart
this
is what I know.

The Best Person

 The Best Person ~ Photo by Patrice

I know you haven’t been
The best person
ever being
But
I must say
You’re the best
I’ve ever seen.

Feeling, Reaching Out, Holding Close

October 20, 2020

Feeling, Reaching Out, Holding Close ~ Photo by Patrice

Feeling, reaching out, holding close
Not sure what this is all about.

Taste the anger, spit it out
Drink deep love, give it to all
All about.

See the sun rise, breathing life
Into a blue, sweet sky.

Experience the night
Enveloping all in a blanket warm and pure
Kept safe til darkness disappears.

I feel this, I reach out, hold close
For I now know what it’s all about.

I Have Heard Your Voice

I have heard your voice
Felt your gentle soul
Know your touch is
What I feel
When soft breezes blow.

I don’t need to see you
For I know you’re near
Holding me close forever
Forever, my sweet love
My sweet dear.

My Heart Is Heavy, My Soul Cold

June 8, 2020

Squirrel Contemplating ~ Photo by Patrice

My heart is heavy, my soul cold

Wherever I wander
I know
The sky will be there
The earth a treasure trove
Of experiences

I will live, I will know

Together
They will pull me out
Out of this deep hole

My heart will lighten
My soul no longer be
A deathly cold.

Beauty Is What I Behold

April 27, 2020

Teddy at the farm ~ Photo by Patrice

Beauty is what I behold
When looking out
Onto the board expanse
Nothing but beauty to behold.

My eyes see fields, meadows
Hills and lovely valleys
Where creatures big and small
Live, loving all.

As I lay my head down tonight
I’ll once again
Behold these images of beauty
In vivid dreams throughout
This, my sleeping night.

I Know Why I’m Here

October 30, 2019

German Rottie ~ Painting by Patrice

I know why I’m here
Know the world spins and turns
I know sadness and grief
And
I know great joy and ecstasy.

Yes
I know what it means
To be in this world
And part of everything.

Something

May 15, 2019

Heron in the Creek ~ Photo by Patrice

The day before
Something.

Not sure what that is
But I know, know it’s
Something.

I’ll go thru my life
Living it to the highest heights
It’ll be
Something.

Then afterwards
When all is said and done
I’ll sit back and say
That was
Something.

I

Self Portrait ~ Illustration by Patrice

I can’t be scorned, belittled or debased
I am alive, I have survived
And
I know, know what I need to do.
