When I Hear

November 1, 2022
When I Hear ~ Photo by Patrice

When I hear the voices call 
My heart bumps 
skips a beat.

When I hear that melody
I know 
know I’m not alone
nor to be.

When I hear the voices sing
sing of love, compassion 
everything.

Holding Out, Holding Close

October 6, 2022
Holding Out, Holding Close ~ Photo by Patrice

Holding out, holding close 
Thoughts of yesteryear

Knowing they arrived
Played out
And
Now have disappeared.

Reasons why, reasons known
I can’t decipher
I can’t cry out

All I know
they happened
They’re with me now 

Till I leave this earth, till I too 
Am no longer here.

See The Way

March 1, 2022
Refugees fleeing the Russia-Ukraine war
Thirteen-year-old Jana left Chernivtsi with her family and two dogs. They travelled with some family friends who have relatives in Italy, where they are hoping to stay. “In Ukraine, children stay hidden, afraid their homes might collapse at any moment,” says Jana as she strokes her dog.

See the way, see the path 
Move forward, don’t look back 

Embrace the knowledge 
You’re going to safety 

Where no one
Can hurt you 

Not now, nor never 
Just know, believe that.

The Knowledge, The Answers

February 2, 2022
The Knowledge, The Answers ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

Hearing, listening
for
the knowledge 
the answers 

I need, I seek 

It may be tomorrow 
or
the day after that 

They’ll come 

the knowledge 
the answers 
will appear 

I know 

Just like that.

I Haven’t Been

July 8, 2021

I haven’t been 
the one to love

I haven’t been

I haven’t been 
the one to cherish

I haven’t been

I haven’t been
no matter what you say 

I know

I know the truth 
I know 

I haven’t been.

Know what I’m doing
Know what I did
Now going to where
I love, I live

All is well
And making life
All
That I need, that I give.

I Feel The Wheels Turning

March 2, 2020

Pebbles and Rocks ~ Photo by Patrice

I feel the wheels turning
I know
I’m moving ahead
left behind is the quandary
shall I stay safe
or
go forward instead.

The path is convoluted
many twists and turns ahead
but I know
I feel
It’s the only road I must travel
before I sleep
lay down
rest my weary head.

More Than Enough

September 4, 2019

Red Chairs ~ Photo by Patrice

More than enough
Has come to mind
Now
Deep breath in
Long breath out
Stand firm
Look around
Know what’s coming
Coming about.

You Don’t Know What I Know

Giraffe ~ Stipple art by Patrice

You don’t know what I know

You don’t feel what I feel

You don’t see what I see

You can’t hear what I hear

Because

You are not and never will be me.

The Way The World Goes

February 8, 2018

Shiloh ~ Pencil Art by Patrice

Haven’t told my heart the way the world goes
Haven’t said the words that no one else does know
Won’t even tease the strings
That connect her to my sauntering toes
Nor let her ears, my lips know
Just how the world goes.
~ Patrice
