There I Am

April 19, 2019

Rising Fiddle Head ~ Photo by Patrice

There I am in my robe
Watching closely as the earth disrobes
All it’s ugly, nasty things
Rising up in beauty
Filled with summer and with spring.
Winter’s cold, bitter hate
Melted here, no distaste
Only warm, fulfilling beams
Creating more lovely dreams.

Bless the ground I stand upon
Know it gives me faith true and strong
Trusting I’ll be here long after
Spring flowers fade and go
But memories of what has been
Or yet to come
Will hold my own sheltering robe so tight
That I know I will be safe
On earth’s soft ground tonight.

House Of Cards

House of cards
Comes crashing down
Never built on solid ground
No ace, jack nor king
Only a queen in mourning.

Focus On Falling Snow

Focus on falling snow
Dropping, falling, drifting
Blow.

Filling cracks in heart and soul
Holding softly footsteps
Traced in falling white.

Moving with
No cares in sight
Blanketed in soften, drifting white.

What Has Happened?

Filtered Sunlight ~ Photo by PatriceWhat has happened?
What will be today?
No one telling’
Just moving, moving on their way.

Couldn’t hear directions
Couldn’t see the way
Couldn’t, couldn’t remember my journey
From that other day.

Must trust the Master
Must believe, believe he’ll guide me
On this that is
My journey’s way.

Good Beginnings

Good beginnings
Caress the past
Moving forward
Beyond the last
Making new ones
As they come to be.

No one knows
Just what’s in store
Only that the way
Is open and
Pulls us through
Here to this day.

Showing
Another time
Beginning now today
But always, always
Starting yesterday.

Last Day Of A Time

Poinsettia ~ Photo by Patrice

Last day of a time gone thru
When everything’s done
Came back lived by me, by you.

Looking forward to days ahead
Not back at neither sorrow or dread
Only joy, “Remember it” she said.

Bring it forward to this New Year
Live it to the fullest
With much good cheer!

Golden Leaves Swaying

November 2, 2018

Golden Fall ~ Photo by Patrice

Golden leaves swaying
On a November breeze
Floating, cascading down
Landing on soon to be
Frozen, winter ground.

Woods are silent, hushed, listening
To the still quiet as a hunter lurks
Waiting to kill in the midst
Of golden leaves falling, raining down
Upon barren, dying ground.
