What Is?

August 15, 2019

Chickens and Eggs ~ Illustration by Patrice for the Educational Publisher, Ginn and Company

What is the cause? What is the effect?
What does it mean?

For hearts are broken, cities crumble
Crops decay
Lives destroyed.

And
In the midst of this

A sprout pops up, a giggle resonates
Thunder dissipates
Rain clears all filth away.

There is a God
There is a life
We will not disappear.

I Journey To My Home

I journey to my home
The place where I was born.

Memories past, life I did before
Some heartache, some laughing then and now.

I journey to the place
I was born, I journey home.

Every Morning

Every morning I open my book
Writing
The words given to me.

Every morning I think about living
Life
Free with courtesy.

Every morning I see
A different morning
One
I make it to be.

Seasons Of Life

October 11, 2017

Fall Flowers ~ Photo by Patrice

I feel the sadness, the dying life
Into hibernation
No movement til the unfrozen
Comes back, springs to life.

Melancholy knowing
The ground will hold still
Covered in snow
And frozen ice.

Through cycles of the land
Eons of living life
The world changes showing
Birth, growing, living, dying
In seasons of life.

Why I Heard The Call

November 3, 2016

Why I heard the call
Is news to me
Listening to the answer
Is beyond all that makes
Me me.

Don’t know the reason
Or if it’s part of destiny
Making life an honour
Lived with all my heart
My being.

Vacant Thought

June 15, 2016

Vacant thought
Vacant lot in life
Not necessarily made totally right
By coming of night
Nor glorious morning light.

Sometimes best
To let the mind be at peace
To rest, vacant of any racing kind
Only tranquility residing
In a quiet mind,

Vacant
Of all troubling thoughts
No racing
Racing thru a night, a day, a life
A mind.

Life is
What it is
Heart full, heartless
All together
Showing us it is
Life

Life lives. ~ Patrice
