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,

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 lives. ~ Patrice

Strive For Life

Strive for life
Seek health
And feel love.

No more can one ask
No more can a heart embrace
A soul know.

No more.

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.

Life’s Not Easy

Life’s not easy but what I’ve got
Even if I sacrifice, pay my dues
Know it doesn’t mean
I get to cruise.

If the hard work never stops
Does it mean I’ll not
Feel fun and laughter, give it up
Be satisfied with my lot?

Absolutely, absolutely not.

Glorious, Glorious Is All

Glorious, glorious is all I can say
Some people are wonderful
Some people on this gracious, grand day
Make my life, my year, my month, my week
And most of all, my day.

Tremendous So It Seems

June 24, 2014

Filtered Sun ~ photo by Patrice

Tremendous so it seems walking thru the maze
Pass what beams life back to me
From an unearthly realm on a heavenly stream.

Touch the golden glow
Bask in that fantasy stream
Mellow is the fellow born to feel all that
That doesn’t seem.

We Can Succeed

April 23, 2014

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

We can succeed in this life we need
Accessing those things we hold so dear.

We can succeed whether the sky is fair
Or filled with heartache, anger and despair.

We can see our way in this life we need
For we believe we can and will succeed.
