Peaceful Scene

October 14, 2020

Peaceful Scene ~ Photo by Patrice

Waves of thunder cross the sky
Rain falls obliterating any peaceful scene
My heart wails in anguish
Horrified by what
I’ve seen.

May tomorrow ride the wave
Of sunlight streaming
Streaming across a quiet
Peaceful scene.

And I will rest in peace
Knowing life goes on
No matter what I feel
I’ve seen.

When I Hear My Heart Pounding

November 18, 2019

Remembering Ursa ~ Photo by Lorraine

When I hear my heart
Pounding
My breath takes away
All the fear I had living
Past yesterday
My feet planted in heaven
My arms embracing love
Now I can face tomorrow
Knowing
I had you my dear
Sweet love.

Don’t Make Me The One

Don’t make me the one

Don’t make me
Fall from grace
Have no fun

Don’t make me the only one

For the flowers speak
The waters wave and the trees bow
Knowing they too

Don’t want to be this one.

Hoping For The Best

October 3, 2019

3 Faces of Foxy - Watercolour Painting by PatriceHoping for the best
Waiting
Waiting for the next
Adventure to happen
Nothing says it’ll come
But
Nothing says it won’t.

Hoping for the best
Knowing it will be
A time I’ll caress
Enjoying
Nothing but the best.

Once Again

November 15, 2018

Storm Clouds ~ Photo by Patrice

Why does it happen
What will stop me
From a big cry
How did I let it come to this
Once again.

When will I understand
The process doesn’t need
To harbour all this doubt
Mistrust and anger
Once again.

Now I’ll step back looking at
All that has been
Refresh my mind knowing
I can conquer this and everything
Once again.

Picky Partners

May 17, 2018

Mal pups ~ Illustration by PatricePicky partners don’t always last
Sometimes they bicker and fight
It goes on and on
For whatever reason it just
Lasts and lasts.

Picky partners need to let up
Knowing being together
Happily
Is what needs to
Forever last.

Holding Heart In Hand

May 1, 2018

Crocus - Photo by Patrice

Holding heart in hand
Living, doing the best
That I can

No looking back
Nor focused
On what’s ahead

Staying in the moment
Knowing it’s where
I should be

Instead.

I Wonder What

March 20, 2018

Mr. T ~ Photo by Patrice

I wonder what
I will say
What I’ll see
In the morning
Unfolding
Just before me.

No breath is taken
Carelessly
Holding on
Moving forward
Knowing I have
Heaven and earth
Backing me.

Not

April 5, 2016

Not
Knowing is nothing

Not
Hearing is something

Not
Feeling is everything.

Wonder

April 14, 2015

Wonder is what I’ve got
As I reach, reach out and see
The beauty, the majesty of all living things
Knowing they are all part of me.
