My Heart

My heart

My heart
It tocks

My heart
And then not

My heart

My heart
Brings life
And then

My heart

Why I Think The Things I Do

May 14, 2020

Foxy Painting ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

I don’t know why
I think the things I do
Or why sometimes
They come true.

I do know my heart
Loves the way
Nature brings beauty
To me, to you.

To live in joy, laughter
Not thinking anything
Or blue.

That’s why
I guess
I think the things
I do.

The One

March 27, 2018

Safe and Strong ~ Illustration by Patrice for Ginn and Company's math book, 'Starting Points in Mathematics'

I march ahead
Leaving no trace, no dread.

Heading to an unknown grace
To a place I can be the one.

 The only one who loves this person
The one I will become.

Anger Mounts, Consuming Me

February 11, 2016

Old House ~ Photo by Patrice

Anger mounts, consuming me
No help in sight, it seems
Not for me.

Then, I turn about
Then, I see
A world full of majesty.

Holding out a hand
A love envelopes
Consumes me.

Not a breath I take
Is it done on it’s own
Or just for me.

I am part of the universe
That holds, loves, surrounds
As it protects me

Then, I know
No anger mounts
Consuming me.
