I Know You Haven’t Seen

August 19, 2019

Kites in the Sky ~ Photo by Patrice

I know you haven’t seen
The world I see
Know you most likely
Don’t really care.

But to me, it’s everything
It’s my world, my life
My very being
I live it everyday
I wake up wondering
What the universe
Will bring me today.

Will I laugh, will I cry
Or just be silent as I watch
This world come
Take me on a journey
You’ll never see
It’s mine
It belongs only, to me.

I Want

August 12, 2019

Wild Rose ~ Photo by Patrice

I don’t want
To talk about bad things to come
Not about people
Who have succumb to treacherous lives
No weeping
Wailing can disguise.

No, I want
To talk about how my heart soars
My voice roars the beauty of things
And the gentle kindness
A good heart brings.

These,
These are the things
I want to hold
These are the things
I want to be told.

Sacrifice

August 7, 2019

Cloudy Morning Sky ~ Photo by Patrice

Sacrifice is what we do
Sometimes it’s good
Sometimes we should just
Press ‘undo’.

Your heart knows
What’s best to do
What’s best for you.

Listen quietly
Listen loud
It’ll always bring you
Thru.

Crises Come

July 31, 2019

Crises come
Monopolizing the mind
The spirit
Everything in the universe
Anything
Not tied down tight.

What has happened?
Why?
No answers come
Questions only
They hang in the frigid, cold
Unforgiving sky.

Do your best
Do what’s correct
What’s right
Maybe then the world will smile
Grass turn a brilliant green
And stars shine a guiding light
On everything.

You Know

July 30, 2019

Alberta Daisy ~ Photo by Patrice

You know, I haven’t seen
The beauty, splendour
You talked about, you’ve seen.

Mine has been
A narrow kaleidoscope
Of all the things
Near and close to me.

And you know
You know, that’s enough
Enough for me.
