My Heart

September 16, 2022

Diva and Lise Painting ~ Watercolour by Patrice

My heart rules, my heart says
Be the best and then leave the rest
Don’t look for bad nor tolerate those
That bring it.

My heart hears all kinds of things
Water crashing on distant shores
A baby bird looking for some more
The calling of a lonesome wolf.

My heart feels the touch of necessity
A coffee warm, so tasty
The gentle caress from one
So loved.

My heart does all these things
While beating life and breathe
Into everything.

Seek Then You Shall Find

September 15, 2022
Seek Then You Shall Find ~ Photo by Patrice

Seek
Then you shall find 
Hidden treasures 
Most divine. 

Where
Did they come from 
When
Did they arrive? 

Is the secret 
The answer
You need to answer 
To surmise.

Why Bother

September 13, 2022
Why Bother ~ Photo by Patrice

Why bother 
To be in the midst of anxiety 
To dwell 
Within destitution? 

Makes no sense 
To me. 

Be free to see 
Feel 
The joys of happiness  
The heights of ecstasy. 

It’s a choice to be 
A decision 
made by you, by me 
Let it be.

Power My Life

Power My Life ~ Photo by Patrice

Power my life
To be the best
The best
I can be.

Let no secrets keep me
From being that one
I want
Need to be.

Let joy soar
Singing far above
And
Around my head.

I see what I’m capable of
All I need
All
I want to be.

Terrible Things

September 8, 2022
Terrible Things ~ Photo by Patrice

Terrible things have happened 
Terrible things 
Terrible things live
Exist. 

We must live
Trying
Not to harbour 
But
Eliminate
Those terrible things.

Not hear, feel 
Allow
Those awful 
Awful
Terrible things.

The Essence Of Me

September 7, 2022
Essence of Me ~ illustration by Patrice

No one can 
or
will be 
the essence of me. 

Me, alone 
is the only one 
I am. 

Pure with faults 
that’s who 
who I am, I can
will be.

Don’t Fear

Fireworks in the Night Sky ~ Photo by Patrice

Don’t fear the light
Nor the darkness in the dead of night
They will all embrace you
Lead you
With a guiding light.

Can’t See

September 1, 2022
Can't See ~ Photo by Patrice

Can’t see where I’m going 
nor
where I’ve been 
the road is rough 
too many bends 
for me.

Will I come
out to the open? 

See the path before me 
gently sloping
to a valley full of fun  
no sadness nor depression 
so deep. 

Hopefully 
this is what I’ll see
will be.

You Haven’t Been The One

August 31, 2022
You Haven't Been The One ~ Illustration by Patrice for the Educational Publisher, Ginn and Company

I know 
you haven’t been
the one
to make a difference
in my life.

That can only be
has to be
my purpose
my only purpose
forever, ever be.
