The Sun

March 26, 2020

Spring Shoots ~ Photo by Patrice

The sun breaks
over a brown earth
Left as if dead from winter storms
But then
In the midst of all broke
Deemed dead and dying
Is a small green shoot
Emerging
Bringing life
To a winter weary land.

The warm sun gives life
Nurtures
The rising ones
Spring
Has come
As winter retreats
Only
On a later day
To blast
Blow once again.

The sun then rests
Satisfied
she has done her best
Thou
She too
Will be back
Tomorrow
To nurture, bring life
With a warm, radiating
Spring sun.

Terror Holds My Heart

March 25, 2020

Soulful Tree at Eugina Falls ~ Photo by Patrice

 

 

Terror
holds my heart
Still waiting
for the worst
To subside.

And my mind
Knows
The world
Of innocence
Will not grow
It’ll hide.

Only fear
Anger
Uncontrolled
Hate
Coupled with
Mistrust
If
we’re not careful
These
Will dominate.

My terror shows
I can not hide
These feelings
I feel
I describe.

Heard The Answer

March 19, 2020

Heard the answer
Before the question
Was ever asked.

Knew the answer
Didn’t have to ask
Or form the words
To know
I must be forever
Where the answer is
Not
The question asked.

I Don’t Have To Do Anything

March 18, 2020

Quite Thoughts ~ Photo by Patrice

I don’t have to write anything
Nor do I need to say
Kind or bitter words
I don’t have to do anything
Today.

Maybe tomorrow
In that different day
Things will be different
They’ll change from
What I do today.

But tomorrow
I’ll deal with it on that day
Because I don’t have to
Do anything, anything
Today.

The Virus Spreads

March 17, 2020

Monarch Butterfly ~ Photo by Patrice

The virus spreads
Rearing it’s ugly head
All across
An unsuspecting land.

No one knows
Where it will go
Only know its come.

It’s infectious spread
Crosses
Across a frightened land.

Holding Still, Holding Fast

March 16, 2020

Holding Still ~ Photo by Patrice

Holding still, holding fast
Waiting, waiting For the terrible, the bad
To pass.

Then the sun will shine, rivers flow
Lives will live, love and give
To all they know.

Heartache Felt

March 11, 2020

Catlady's House coming down - Photo by Patrice

Heartache felt
Across the world, the land
Will everything be right
Again?

No remorse, only sorrow fills
The body of the man
Lost to the family he once loved
In his home, his homeland.

No more laughter fills the air
Only fracture, anger, loneliness
Despair
Misery shared.

The kiss of love turned to death
Same tomorrow
No future
No one cares.
