I Am Feeling Down

September 29, 2020

I Am Feeling Down ~ Photo by Patrice

I am feeling down and all alone
Feel my heart beat a lonesome tone
Crying, standing in the wake
Of not where I want to be.

Hoping the mists of sadness
Will disappear, leaving behind
A world bright and clear
Full of anticipation, happiness
Not this awful, nagging fear and sadness.

Terrible Things Happen

September 23, 2020

Terrible Things Happen ~ Photo by Patrice

Terrible things happen
In terrible times
Suffer and subjugate
Seems to be the way of life
In this certainly
Not a nursery rhyme.

Will I persevere
Will I see the light?
Questions, answers
Not seen tonight.

Maybe tomorrow
I’ll find my way
Maybe then joy will be
The cloud I ride upon
Spiriting me away.

I See You Laughing

I see you laughing ~ Photo by Patrice

I see you laughing
Talking to me
Your heart
Your mind free.

It may be tomorrow
When we meet again
I look forward to
Whenever it is.

Til then
I’ll be my best
As I dream of that time
When I see you once again.

Today ~ Photo by Patrice

Seething in the mist
Saddened by sorrow
Struggling to say
I don’t know why I let it effect me

Maybe tomorrow
Maybe later today I’ll feel better
I’ll let it go and celebrate
Everything sweet and beautiful
I experience just

A Hummingbird Came

September 14, 2020

A Hummingbird Came  ~ Photo by Patrice

A hummingbird came
he sat
on the the stair
his words were luscious
I knew he was there.

The beat of his wings
the flow of his heart
moved me to tears
I bowed down
I cried
I cried a lot.

For no more til spring
will I hear those sounds
as snow falls
baring down
on a land bleak
no hummingbird sounds.

the snow will melt
the heavens wake
on his journey back
the hummingbird makes.

No One Seems To Know

No One Seems To Know ~ Photo by Patrice

No one seems to know
nor do they understand
the way to heaven
is always open
it’s there
at their command.

Desperate Happenings

September 2, 2020

Desperate Happenings ~ Photo by Patrice

Desperate happenings
Unfolding tonight
Leaving wonder
Far in the distant twilight
No time for remorse
Anger and fury is what
Is coming tonight.

For tomorrow
In the board, bright daylight
Could it be all will be
As if it never happened
Never made you cry
In the dead of the dark
Dark night.

Not Sure, Not Sure Why

Not Sure, Not Sure Why ~ Photo by Patrice

Not sure, not sure why
the world turns the way it does
clouds steam across the sky
birds sing and cows call.

I stand in the midst of it all
I’m not sure
not sure why.

The Water Weeps

August 25, 2020

The Water Weeps ~ Photo by Patrice

The water weeps to the ground
Soaking all
Saturating a thirsty ground.

Flowers dance between
The raindrops moist
Blooming, sacrificing all
It is their choice.

Clouds thunder
Marching across the sky
No time for plunder
For something in the distance
Has caught their eye.

Now I stand amidst this
I’m part of this
The earth, the wind, the sky
All this happening round
I feel it, feel so profound.

When I Suffer A Silence Bad

August 20, 2020

When I Suffer a Silence Bad ~ Photo by Patrice

When I suffer a silence bad
I try to overcome the fear
It will last, it will last.

Then I see the sun rise
In a sky filled with beauty
I see that no anger, fear
Nor hate lasts forever
These too will dissipate.

Love will come thru
Speaking, telling
Showing the way
To happiness for me
And for you.
