Overlooking Shadows In The Dark

December 13, 2018

Dark of Night ~ Photo by Patrice

Overlooking shadows in the dark
I hide beneath the sea of apology
Never looking back
Never to see
What dwells in the hearts
Of those I left behind
Never again to see.

Things Happen

December 12, 2018

Summer Torrent of Rain ~ Photo by Patrice

Things happen
I don’t know why
Placing me in places
Sometimes sad
Sometimes I even cry.

Then the heavens open up
Raining down
Blessings warm and bountiful
Covering everything
Everything all around.

How Do I Know

December 6, 2018

Quite Thoughts ~ Photo by Patrice

How do I know
Where I’ve been
Where I come from
How did I do the things
I’ve done?

Where will I go
When I’m finished
I’ve completed all
All that I’ve come here
To get done?

Secrets to answer
Questions to ask
I’m sure I’ll never
Be finished with all
These tasks.

The Hall Is Narrow

December 5, 2018

Old House Window ~ photo by Patrice

The hall is narrow
The ceiling falling down
My way to the living room
Can’t be found.

A method of cooking fills
Mouldy kitchen air
Where cabinets hang
Feeling no loving care.

Nothing to clean away
Night terrors experienced
In a cluttered bedroom
Where sleep is not
Usually assumed.

Another way, another day
Maybe tomorrow will be perfect
Making this just a dream
I dreamed yesterday.

Snow Flies

December 3, 2018

Snow Storm ~ Photo by Patrice

Snow flies
And we answer
Why? Why?

Blizzards blow fierce white
Changing darkness
Into a brilliant seeing night.

Cold with icicles
Dripping down
Covering a frigid, frozen ground.

Rivers run underneath
A covering of ice and snow
Sometimes more than a foot deep.

We live thru this
We
We do exist.

Can I Venture To The Past?

Can I venture to the past?
Relax and enjoy things seen
Fix what wasn’t right
Move forward
To this time I live in now
Confident
My heart will no longer hunger
For what has been and passed.

Can I?
Dare I venture to the past?

Believe

Then I heard the calling voice say

Believe in yourself, believe today
Believing is the only way.
