When I Hear Your Heart

Dobie pup ~ Drawing by Patrice

When I hear your heart
Go
Tic toc, tic toc

I’ll send you love
I’ll forget you not.

I Have Found

September 26, 2019

Rottie Pups ~ Painting by Patrice

I have found
My life abounds
With great and grandeur things
If I stay my breath
And listen
To all that brings me joy
Love
And lovely earthly things.

Exalted

September 25, 2019

3 Rotties ~ Illustration by Patrice

Holy has it
Blessed to be
In the company of the exalted
Those that run the universe
The rain, the wind
And me.

No one says
They are lonely
Nor do they see reason
To be unhappy
Or heaven forbid
Angry.

You will be one
Of these persons
You will be filled with ecstasy
For the exalted
Will make sure
It comes to be.

Why Haven’t I

September 23, 2019

Credit Union Blue Water Poster ~ Art by Patrice

Why haven’t I seen
Your heart open up
Your voice speak
Soft, lilting words

Why haven’t I known
The place where all go
To be safe and unhurt
Why haven’t I?

I don’t know why
I haven’t been able
To experience all
Of these things.

I do know they exist
And know
Someday I’ll see all these
Beautiful, wondrous things.

What Is?

August 15, 2019

Chickens and Eggs ~ Illustration by Patrice for the Educational Publisher, Ginn and Company

What is the cause? What is the effect?
What does it mean?

For hearts are broken, cities crumble
Crops decay
Lives destroyed.

And
In the midst of this

A sprout pops up, a giggle resonates
Thunder dissipates
Rain clears all filth away.

There is a God
There is a life
We will not disappear.

Sleepless Night

August 1, 2019

Study of hands and paint brushes ~ Illustration by Patrice for New Chalice Brushes

Sleepless night
Bringing early morning light
Restful peace eluding senses
Throughout the dark
The long, question filled night.

No answers come
Only questions filling, swirling
Round my exhausted mind
No time to sleep, to rest
To dream of better times.

Mighty

July 24, 2019

Diva and Lise ~ Watercolour & Pencil Art by Patrice

Hold the tender
In your hands
Bask in sunlight
Lighting all the land.

Never believe
Your life’s not worthy
For you are mighty
You are mighty grand.
