Understand, Don’t Understand

April 16, 2018

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








Understand, don’t understand
How the world turns round
Can’t conceive, see the concept
Of what will come to be.

All fits together, all is a mess
Nothing left undone
All’s well and is what
Is the outcome.

I’m Going To Be

Pen & Ink Illustration of Yehudi Menuhin by Patrice

I’m going to be here
And over there.

I’m going to be full of brilliance
Nothing more.

I’m going to be forever

I Don’t know The Answer

Pen Ink Drawing of an Owl ~ Illustration by Patrice for B.C. Central Credit Union




I don’t know the answer
Even as the question
Isn’t asked.

The flow knows the answer
It leaves it on a bed
Of relevance
Fearing nothing
Only feeling dread.

I don’t know the answer
But not to say the answer
Isn’t in my head.

Suffice to say
Sufficient to be
Happy, happy

The One

March 27, 2018

Safe and Strong ~ Illustration by Patrice for Ginn and Company's math book, 'Starting Points in Mathematics'

I march ahead
Leaving no trace, no dread.

Heading to an unknown grace
To a place I can be the one.

 The only one who loves this person
The one I will become.

Inside The Heart, Within The Soul

March 26, 2018

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

Going deep inside the heart
Within the soul
Feeling things I didn’t see
I didn’t know.

Crying words that have
Such knowledge
Words I need
And didn’t know I knew
Or would now know.

Breathe life lived
Deep inside the heart
Created within the soul.

I’m Not Sure

March 15, 2018

I’m not sure what I’ll write
Something about yesterday
Maybe something
That will occur tonight.

No rules in place
No sayings to follow
Just hear that soft voice speak
And my writing, my words
They follow.
~ Patrice
