Let Me Settle Down

Let me settle down
My anger now is very, very profound.

You took a life, meant nothing to you
Just something in your way
With a swipe, you took a life away
Didn’t miss a stride nor did your heart skip a beat
You went on like nothing bad marked your soul
Or was there blood on your saintly hands
You smiled, laughed, no trace upon your angelic face
Of the death someone has to face
A death you caused, you alone.

It may have been just a little creature
Living life in the space you called your own
You crushed the breath from that creature’s chest
You ground your shoe in the sand
Leaving no trace of a life
That may have been so grand.

Life is precious
Intertwined with all we see
Combined to grow, prosper alongside one another
Whether we walk, run, leap or crawl
You’re not alone nor can…

Looking For

March 7, 2018

Hoping, looking
For a breathing space
To be in harmony
Living life as I know
I can and should be.

Trust me, trust you
Trusting the world
To be what I need
What I’m looking for
And that I seek.

Have You Seen

November 7, 2016

Fall Leaves ~ Photo by Patrice

Have you seen
The adventures that have been
Have you seen?

Have you seen anything
That would help alleviate the pain
Make the world a better place
Secure with all kinds of gain
Have you seen?

Have you seen all
That is laid out on the landscape
To the end
Of the world’s horizon line
Have you seen?

Have you seen
The things that I too
Have seen resting near and far
Part of nature’s plan
Living life growing right
Have you seen?

Have you seen
Have you seen, seen anything?

Me, Myself and I

July 20, 2016

3 Rotties ~ Illustration by Patrice

Me, Myself and I
Together we go thru life
Me, Myself and I
Conquering strife, living life
Me, Myself and I
No one knows or been told that
Me, Myself and I
Can survive anything if we stand together
Me, Myself and I
Don’t know why life is this way but
We’ll live and love in a way,
Each and everyday
So there’ll be no remorse for
Me, Myself and I.

In The Dusky River Silence Flows

January 25, 2016

Crossing at Nanticoke Creek ~ Photo by Patrice

In the dusky river silence flows
Flowers shimmer along the shoals
No one knows which way it goes
Only those that climb upon the shore
Reach for heaven and nothing more.

The deer, the doe drink their fill
Watching always for threats and still
They move with poise
Knowing others come, living life
Wherever the dusky, silent river flows.

Shall I know?
Will I see all this beauty
Grace and harmony?

Let Me Settle Down

You took a life, meant nothing to you

With a swipe, you took a life away
Didn’t miss a stride nor did your heart skip a beat
You went on like nothing bad marked your soul

You smiled, laughed, no trace upon your angelic face

Leaving no trace of a life
That may have been so grand.

Life is precious
Intertwined with all we see
Combined to grow, prosper alongside one another
Whether we walk, run, leap or crawl
You’re not alone nor can you make it alone
Don’t kill those whose heart sings a different beat
Instead remember
We need one another in this life we been shown.

Let There Be An Angel

March 20, 2014

Crocus Spring ~ photo by Patrice

Let there be an angel, heaven and eternity
Let it all come together
In the midst of living life with certainty
That all is well
When you have an angel, heaven and eternity.
