You Know I Can’t Tell You

July 13, 2020

Fawn ~ Illustration by Patrice

You know I can’t tell you
The secret to your success

It’s hidden beneath, inside
Your very own chest

The secrets will hide
The truth not told

Til you accept

All you’ve been given
All you behold.

Clouds Thunder

Clouds thunder
Rain parts cloudy sky
No sunlight hits a silent ground.

Lighting strikes fear in a heart
Brought to a sudden
Wakening start.

Rain drops on a tin roof
A pinging ring in the midst of a world
Filled with all this thundering sound.

Life and breathe are brought
Given to a earth parched
Thirsting for that thundering, lighting
Rain sound.

Make It Holy

Make it holy, make it last
Make it not to be something
I can’t hold on to
But something
That will ever last.

No One’s Listening

3 Faces of Foxy - Watercolour Painting by Patrice

No one’s listening
To my heart beat
Nor saying
Any encouraging ways.

When I speak
The echo goes far, far away
Even I can’t hear
It come back my way.

No one’s listening
To anything, anything
I speak or say.

Haven’t Found The Answer

Bright Light ~ Photo by Brent

Haven’t found the answer
Haven’t seen the light
Many questions will bring answers
With an illuminating light.

Then when my questions
Are answered
And I can breathe ever so light.

I will look
For more questions to be answered
In that brilliant, all knowing light.

Silent message
Quiet and discreet
Voicing everything
I just couldn’t speak.

Summer Comes

Baby Robins ~ Photo by Patrice

Summer comes, breezes blow
Around a fragrant land
No hardship, no anguish
Oh no.

Birds fly,
Feed their young
Crops grow reaching up
The hot, hot sun.

 Fawns frolic in meadows
Hidden, lost in woods
Silent except for all the wonders
Filling summer
Beneath a summer sun.

Unholy Being Resting Near Me

July 1, 2020

Black Coral ~ Photo by Brent

Unholy being
Resting near me

Teeth long like daggers
Smile sinister scaring me
Breath hisses spewing forth
Nasty, nasty.

I will brace myself
I will be optimistic
Lead my life as if
I don’t feel, hear, smell
This awful, awful entity.

Tremendous Help You Are To Me

June 30, 2020

My Mom ~ Photo by Patrice

Tremendous help you are to me
Tremendous, unconditionally
What I say, Where I go
You are there, backing me.

When the day begins, night ends
There in front of me
At my side, my back protecting
You are a tremendous help

When I Hear The Sound Of Your Voice

June 29, 2020

Old Trans Canada Hwy Scene ~ Photo by Patrice

When I hear
The sound of your voice
Life becomes so dear
Clouds part, rains stop
And wrens fly near.

No one speaks a word
No one need say
The feelings felt
To convey how
The world is ours
We have all the love
We need today.
