Make It Holy

July 9, 2020

Sunlight on Water ~ Photo by Patrice

Make it holy, make it last
Make it not to be something
I can’t hold on to
But something
That will ever last.

Summer Comes

Summer comes, breezes blow
Around a fragrant land
No hardship, no anguish
Oh no.

Birds fly,
Feed their young
Crops grow reaching up
The hot, hot sun.

 Fawns frolic in meadows
Hidden, lost in woods
Silent except for all the wonders
Filling summer
Beneath a summer sun.

When I Hear The Sound Of Your Voice

When I hear
The sound of your voice
Life becomes so dear
Clouds part, rains stop
And wrens fly near.

No one speaks a word
No one need say
The feelings felt
To convey how
The world is ours
We have all the love
We need today.

When It Happened, Where It Came To Pass

When it happened
Where it came to pass
I know it’s not to last.

In the beginning
At the start, I saw heaven
A place
To rest my heart.

To sleep in restful peace
Bliss being part
Of all I began
I had to start.

All that came to happen
Beginning at the end
At the start.

Why I Cry

Footprints In the Sand ~ Photo by Patrice

You know why I cry
You know, you know

Life would be easy
Life would be fine
If only I’d forget
Those memories that bind.

For no crying will change
What has happened
Nor make it
Not come to past.

If I lived in the present
Not thinking of the past
Never crying for
What happens in the future.

Let it come
Let it past
Now is my time
Now I must make it last.

All Across The Land

Bee and Flower ~ Photo by Patrice

The sun rises
All across the land

The ground wakes
Sighing a gentle sigh
All across the land.

Birds fly, coyotes call
Leaves sway in unison
All across the land

Contentment is ours
To enjoy
All across the land.

With My Heart Pounding

June 22, 2020

Hogg Falls ~ Photo by Patrice

With my heart pounding
deep within my breast
the world continues to spin around.

White doves cry
walrus sing
fish reach for the sky.

Nothings felt
that hasn’t been
nothings true if we must begin
begin again.

Feeling Lonely And Alone

June 18, 2020

Flintstone House - Photo by Patrice

Feeling lonely and alone
Trapped on a treadmill
Going nowhere
Not back home.

Heart is broken
The sky blue
Tears fall
Masked as rain.

 Dropped by a hand
Who doesn’t blame
For the shape I’m in.

Only suggests
I must stop, turn around
Begin again.

Know What I’m Doing

Know what I’m doing
Know what I did
Now going to where
I love, I live

All is well
And making life
That I need, that I give.

When The Sky Is Full Blue

June 16, 2020

Fall Leaves ~ Photo by Patrice

The sky is full blue
With light.

The earth warm
From the loving sun
The ocean deep and green
Fish swimming without concerns
It seems.

What a time
What a day
For the sky is full blue
With anticipation and light.
