Courting Life, Fleeing Death

February 24, 2021

Courting Life, Fleeing Death ~ Illustration by Patrice

Courting life, fleeing death
Time passes
Taking no regard for
The rest.

Holding close, pushing aside
All things
I love, despise.

In tomorrow
The world may change
Leaving everything
Just the same.

Heaven Helps And Holds Me Close

Heaven Helps And Holds Me Close ~ Illustration by Patrice

Heaven helps
Holds me close

Doors open
Others close

Life goes on
Changing most

Where I least expect it.

Together ~ Illustration by PatriceWe may not be together
but we won’t be far apart
together we’ll be again
when this misery does depart.

Stories Told

November 26, 2020

Stories Told ~ Illustration by Patrice

Stories told
Are the stories
I tell.

Are they true
Or did I just say words
That make the story
Told well?

Secrets revealed
Bad parts left out
Who knows
How can you tell?

Embellished or truthful
Telling a tale
To remember.

Not because
It’s told correctly
But told well.

Knowing Who I Am

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

Knowing who I am is hard to acknowledge
When the world tries its damnedest
To change what I am.

Let Me

October 28, 2020

Let Me ~ Illustration by Patrice

Let me hold, let me love those
surrounding my heart

Let me see beauty
in the world static or moving freely

Let me embrace tenderly and with care
all those I see filled with grief or despair

Let me know when to be still
and when to move like a lighting bolt

Let me, let me be in all
this I hold, feel, see and care.

I Paint A Face

Face Study ~ Illustration by Patrice

Every morning I paint a face
The one I want to show
Moving thru the day
With beauty and with grace
I apply colours sometimes
In vibrant broad, happy strokes
Other times I can’t help
The lines are blue
They weep, they cry
Hues blended in a colour
That represents the reason why.

 A smile I paint upon that face
Covering the worried lines
The anger
I hope not to find
Each morning I paint colours
To show love, beauty and grace
There on my face
With a special brush that covers all
The tired, frightened lines
I paint
Every morning I paint a face.

Hold Me Close, Hold Me Tight

Hold Me Close, Hold Me Tight ~ Watercolour & Pencil Art by Patrice

Hold me close, hold me tight
keep the light on
the darkest night.

Let no one say the words
that cut the heart
no matter
all its great might.

Keep me safe, keep me on
the path that’s right
then and only then my world will turn
and be alright.

Thinking About The World Today

July 29, 2020

Golden in Trouble ~ Illustration by Patrice for Dogs In Canada Magazine

About the world today
About all the people who have
Passed away.

Most not their fault
A virus
A plague raced thru
Their lives away.

Not gladness
Is the atmosphere
In this
Our world today.

On The Other Side, Sliding Down

July 27, 2020

Beardie in a Pot ~ Illustration by Patrice

On the other side, sliding down

The slippery slope
Laughing, crying I turn round
I hope the way is clear
The path won’t steer me wrong

On the other side, sliding down.
