Classic Car ~ Illustration by Patrice for B.C. Central Credit Union

I go to write
Listening for the words to form
Pictured in my mind they come
They take their form
On the page they rest
Now said, now wrote.

I thank the presence
That brought them to my mind
Formed the thoughts to convey
And then
Without another word
Quietly slipped away.

Focus On The Present

Horse and Cowboy ~ Illustration by Patrice

Focus on the present
Live in today
Pay attention to what’s happening
Still remembering yesterday.

Self Portrait ~ Illustration by Patrice

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

Another Idea Came To Mind

April 10, 2019

Rottie Pups ~ Painting by Patrice

Another idea came to mind
Popped into my head
My mind
Write it down, ponder it
Express it
Make it become
A reality.

Cause if I let it be
It’ll wander and fade
To a fleeting thought
That once lived
In my mind
In my psyche.

I Heard Your Heart Beat

Shepherd and Bouvier playing ~ Illustration by Patrice

I heard your heart beat
I saw your breath breathe
My fingers touched your lips
My hands caressed your feet.

As my soul touched yours
I knew, knew there was
No where else in this world
I need or rather be.

I’ve Gone The Distance

March 18, 2019

Scratchboard Horses ~ Illustration by Patrice

I’ve gone the distance
I’ve paid the price
The fruits of my labour
may not be suffice
I’ve toiled, anguished
Over minor things
Leaping over hurdles
I’ve just about brought
My heart to the brink
Because I love you
I believe
It’s worth everything.

Keeping, Feeling

March 12, 2019

Starting Points in Math ~ Illustration by Patrice for publisher, Ginn & Company

Keeping everything in store
Keeping all things close to me
Feeling insecure
Feeling a little needy.
