No One Sees

No One Sees ~ Illustration by Patrice for B.C. Central Credit Union

No one sees
I need to see.

No one cares
if it’s good
just a necessity. 

It’s left for me to decide 
live with it 
or cast all aside.

Power My Life

Power my life
To be the best
The best
I can be.

Let no secrets keep me
From being that one
I want
Need to be.

Let joy soar
Singing far above
Around my head.

I see what I’m capable of
All I need
I want to be.

Enough ~ Painting by Patrice

never enough 

is the trouble with 
not enough 

it out, making sure
I know 
what I need, what I have 
that it’s always
just enough.

The Truth

The Truth ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Sometimes the truth
not the best thing 
to hear. 

Sometimes its good 
to accept the truth 
as it is 
as it seems. 

Sometimes you can
make the truth
the truth you need 
to embrace 
to believe.

A Eagle Sits

A Eagle Sits ~ Photos by Patrice

A eagle sits up in a tree 
after fishing salmon
our tiny stream. 

Majestic and noble 
he doesn’t seem to see 
the trials, tribulations 
I’m burdened with
as I too wander by
tiny, fish laden stream. 

He brings it all into perspective 
he makes me see 
life goes on
of what I want 
I need 
I perceive.

Anger, Frustration Seems To Be

February 27, 2020

Winter's Road ~ Photo by Patrice

Anger, frustration seems to be
My method of operation
Thinking thoughts bitter
And angry today.

Can’t seem to find the way
Or the answer to my questions
I need
I need them today.

All is a quandary
Just unseen and blind
For me to see
On this day.

Maybe I should step back
Breathing deeply
Maybe, I’ll find answers,
This way.

I won’t be bitter or angry
I’ll find my route, my path
I’ll be on my way.

The Answer

Circle of Wood ~ Photo by Patrice

Sought to seek the answer the spirits speak
Never once thinking to look inside
To see the answer that I need
The answer, which is here inside of me.

Heaven Helps

Quiet Pond - Photo by Patrice

Heaven helps those that need
No asking, just need
If you look, if you care
Those you need will be there.

Heaven helps, heaven cares
Feel it round, feel it near
Know it’s always
Always here..

Fold The Cards

September 17, 2012

Fold the cards
Shuffle the deck
Hope for an outcome
That will be best
For what you need.

No one is whole
Everyone is strong
Just one amongst the throng
Of worldly beings trying
Here on earth
Not to be wrong.
~ Patrice
