In The Heart

In the heart of my distress
I find an ark of happiness
Ferrys me to a life
In heaven’s image
No heartache, nor strife
In my dreams I seek, I see
This hallowed place I saw
I seek.

Tortured Are The Souls

October 2, 2019

Pale Bodies ~ Photo by Patrice

Tortured are the souls
I see
Writhing in pure agony.

No remorse can be seen
Only furious anger

Big Sky ~ Photo by Patrice

Nobody said I had to know
Nobody knew whether
I needed to go
To a place so true
Where the sky is a radiant blue
The grass beneath soft, tender feet
Welcomes all
And holds them safe
Need not go to another place.

Nobody knew
Nor did they say
What would happen in a place
So full of beauty, dignity
And quiet grace
That I know, I’ll live, I’ll see today.

I Live In The Past

I live in the past
I see those days
I hear that heartbeat
Unable to make
Those old thoughts
Go away.


Not all sadness I feel
For joy and gladness
Support me today
I know I had, had it all
In the life I lived

Only Thru The Looking Glass

January 7, 2019

Looking Thru the Looking Glass ~ Selfie

Only thru the looking glass
Can I see what resides
Resides inside of me.

Only thru the looking glass
Will I be able
Able to be free.

Only thru the looking glass
Can I really
Really be me.

I Learn Many Things

Tree Roots at Eugina Falls ~ Photo by Patrice

I learn many things
I see many times
The world as it turns

My heart knows a reason
To decline
The advances of the destructive
Filled with misery kind.

It comes from within
This loving gift coming from
The divine.

Hearing Nothing

July 19, 2018

Rocking Horse ~ Photo by Patrice

Hearing nothing, feeling all
How can I be in love
With nothing, nothing at all?

 With words I wander in my mind
Imaging scenarios, images of all kinds
Maybe won’t come to pass
Maybe will last and last.

Doesn’t matter
For I see, I feel
While hearing nothing
Nothing not at all.

Every Morning

Whales Tail Beach in Costa Rica ~ Photo by Patrice

Every morning I open my book
The words given to me.

Every morning I think about living
Free with courtesy.

Every morning I see
A different morning
I make it to be.

In my dream
I see fortune full of destiny
Mine to have
Mine to be
Let me begin living
This my dream
In that destiny
I see.

When I Look Outside

May 29, 2017

Bearded Iris ~ Photo by Patrice

When I look outside
My heart does beat
The pressure rise
A world there where all
That breathe must survive.

Beauty, radiance
Seen crystal clear
Waiting for
Another bloom
To appear.

Times can be tough
Rarely an easy ride
Still all enjoy
They do survive.

This I see
When I look outside.
