Raining Down

September 12, 2019

Freezing Rain ~ Photo by Patrice

The full and caring heart
Waits to hear
The sound of love
Raining down.

No drip, drop of seething hate
No frustration, anger
Making lonely roads
Seem so long.

Just love and caring
Gentle kindness freely given
No strings attached
No ‘What if’s’
None of that.

All we see, all we feel
Is loving
Caring, pleasant thoughts
Raining Down.

Strive For Happiness

June 21, 2019

Strive for happiness
Creating love
Narrow the corridor
That harbours anger
Let it sink deep into murky mud.

Never saw it coming
Never heard the cry
Maybe in the beginning
I didn’t understand
The reason why.

Now that is over and it seems
The clouds have begun to dry
I’ll take my happiness
And make love
The reason why.

May

Farmhouse Face and Lilacs ~ Photo by Patrice

May the trees survive winter
Blossom in the spring
Sending forth life
Giving all, nourishing.

May the sun rise in the morning
Rest asleep at night
To come up the next morning
Bringing warmth, love
And fields of waving buttercup delight.

May the seeds dropped in fall
Spring, rise, growing tall
Spreading roots out for nourishment
Leaves reaching up, growing
Til the fall.

May the wind blow breezes
Both strong or gentle
And then not at all.

May they bring on currents
Moisture, rain to quench
The thirst of everyone
Everyone, everything and all.

May, may we live
May we live us all.

The Sun Shines Bright

Costa Rica Sunset - Photo by Patrice

The sun shines bright
The lake’s like glass in the evening light
I take a breath
Savouring all that abounds
I like, I love the world
That is all around.

There We Are

My Family ~ unknown photographer

There we are
And come again
Nurturing love
No matter what
Comes round
The bend.

Forsake not love
That has been
Hold on
go beyond
Heart and soul
To skies
Where angels flow.

Love will come
Love will go
Embracing us
With it’s magic glow
Touching lives
With a gentle touch
Not holding on
Way too much.

I Saw You Together

I saw you together connected by an energy
A wave of endless love.

No words needed to convey, to see your love
Bonded together, radiating an energy
Produced by shared love.

Mother, daughter connected forever
By a word, a feeling, a energy
We simply name love.

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!
