Can I Venture To The Past?

Can I venture to the past?
Relax and enjoy things seen
Fix what wasn’t right
Move forward
To this time I live in now
Confident
My heart will no longer hunger
For what has been and passed.

Can I?
Dare I venture to the past?

Not Alone

September 17, 2018

Wood Smiles and Sad ~ Photo by Patrice

Can’t believe I’m not alone
For there at my side
A presence stays
While I live, work, love, play
And some day, die.

Not alone, never to be
My journey directed
Choreographer, just for me.

I am loved no matter what
I have a place to stand
My back protected
My heart in loving hands.

My protector, confidant, spirit guide
May be those
Who have already lived
And now, have died.

Not that I care from where
They come
Just to feel that presence
At my side.

Will make my road
Smoother, a joy to live
Oh, such a ride!

The Sky Is Filled

Deep Green Sea ~ Photo by Patrice

The sky is filled with optimism
No bird tweets lies
Nor does a bear weep
Wail or cry.

All is filled with beauty
And love
Not one seeks
To be denied.

We live, we love
And one day
We will surely die.

I Don’t Know, I Don’t Know

November 24, 2015

I don’t know, I don’t know
How the world turns
Or where storm clouds go
I don’t know, I don’t know.

I don’t know, I don’t know
Why everything has an enduring spring
A cascading fall in between
Summer hot or cold, white winter falling
I don’t know, I don’t know.

I don’t know, I don’t know
Which one shows me life to live
Steps to take through it all
I don’t know, I don’t know.

My Writings Write

July 6, 2015

At art table ~ Illustration by Patrice

My writings write
My thoughts think
My eyes see almost everything.

My heart knows to let it be
To live within the ecstasy
Never knowing what comes next
Planning only to be the best.

My writings write
My thoughts think
My eyes see almost everything.
