Golden Leaves Swaying

Golden leaves swaying
On a November breeze
Floating, cascading down
Landing on soon to be
Frozen, winter ground.

Woods are silent, hushed, listening
To the still quiet as a hunter lurks
Waiting to kill in the midst
Of golden leaves falling, raining down
Upon barren, dying ground.

Listening To The World Pass By

October 2, 2018

Palm Tree in Blue Sky ~ Photo by Patrice

I sit listening
To the world pass by
My heart is open
I do not cry.

Many words are spoken
Without a sound
Never enough love
Is passed around.

I will beckon, I will try
To get the attention
Of the one in charge
Of this world
I’m listening, pass by.

Oh Teddy Bear Green

Oh Teddy Bear Green what have you seen?
The ups and downs, the lows, the highs.

Oh Teddy Bear Green what has become
Of the love we knew when we were young?

Oh Teddy Bear Green I held you close
You held my heart.

Oh Teddy Bear Green my secrets told
To your listening ways
Not a peep was said no trust betrayed.

Oh Teddy Bear Green
When I fell you cushioned me
When I feared you stood between.

Oh Teddy Bear Green you comforted me
When no one else seemed to care
You helped me, you’ve always been there.

Oh Teddy Bear Green have I become
The one you saw and guided me to be?

Oh Teddy Bear Green what secrets are kept
Beneath that loving Teddy Bear?

Oh Teddy Bear Green

Herald The Coming Storm

November 27, 2015

Thunder Storm ~ Photo by Patrice

Herald the coming storm
Dark of night enveloping
With mighty might
Crossing over land
Thundering
Making creatures cringe
While most don’t understand.

Here I am
Waiting, watching, listening
Holding on
As the coming storm
Keeps coming on.
