The Lush Green Of Summer

The lush green of summer
Is contentment in lazy, hot days
Brief showers of warm shimmering
Summer rain.

Squirrels scurry away
Hummingbirds drink all day
Sun shinning bright in a clear blue
Summer sky.

All is right
As I lie
My eyes watching summer drift by.

Clouds Boil Black

Clouds Boil Black ~ Photo by Patrice

Clouds boil black across the sky 
hiding goodness, laughter 
beneath an unforgiving land 
the sun can’t shine nor rivers flow 
there is no time for kindness to be bestowed.

Maybe tomorrow 
the day after that 
brightness and laughter 
will replace all this awful crap.

A Robin Lays

A robin lays a thousand eggs 
only some come to fruition 

Optimistic, she builds again 
this time, she’s sure 
she’ll see a thousand grow 

Fulfilling her ambition.

Terrible Things Do Happen

Terrible Things Do Happen ~ Photo by Patrice

Terrible things do happen 
Terrible things do come to pass 
How we handle 
Treat them 
Lighting in a bottle 
We have to acknowledge 
Move pass.

A Life Full

A Life Full ~ Photo by Patrice

No one lives a life full of anger, strife
do they live in unprecedented peace 
a nondescript life. 

Somewhere between, somewhere 
we live 
our own beautiful
personal life.

Tic Tock Of The Clock

Tic Tock Of The Clock ~ Photo by Patrice

The tic tock of the clock 
goes on and on 
holding me captive
with its sound. 

The night is dark 
the stars hidden away 
still the clock ticks 
ticks all thru the night
into day. 

The pendulum swings 
sounding on each hour
each day 
signalling time passing 
life drifting away. 

With each tic
tic tock 
my heart beats 
beats to the rhythm 
of that ticking clock.

I’ve Heard The Sound

I've Heard The Sound ~ Photo by Patrice

I’ve heard the sound of the earth
Rocking too and fro 
Even thou she doesn’t make a sound 
I know the earth is there 
I know her heart spins
Round and round 
But still
She quietly stands
Stands still for me 
I am
On solid ground.

Hope is eternal 
Hope is strength 
Take all good things that come your way 
Believing in a better day.

You Heard Me Call

You Heard Me Call - Photo by Patrice

You heard me call 
I didn’t say words needed 
Not yesterday.

All was lonely, all was not right 
You heard me call but turned away. 

Words stung, they torn away 
A facade built up way before today. 

You heard me call and laughed away
The sights envisioned for tomorrow
Created just today. 

I have stopped, I call no more
For words must be by someone else 
It’s not my work, not anymore.

I Seek And Find

I Seek And Find ~ Photo by Patrice

I seek and find 
A world full of happiness 
There I find. 

No sorrow, sobs 
Cries of destitute 
Nor does anger find a place
To prey. 

For in this world of magnitude 
My heart’s taken away  
My soul alive
Oh, how beauty thrives.
