The Lush Green Of Summer

July 23, 2021

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.

Curiously Wondering

Curiously Wondering
What is to be 
What will become of my world 
My life
In the years to come
To be. 

Will I grow old  
Hair turned white 
Or
Just go to sleep 
Forever
One night? 

Questions asked 
Answers
I don’t know
Time is the only one 
That
Really knows.

Heaven Help The World Understand

Heaven help the world
Understand
There is no tomorrow
If we don’t stand and
Let nature be around.

We alone cannot supply
Our food nor make rain
Come pouring down.

Understand
We are but a small dot
In a world
Simply
Spinning round.

Hold Me Close, Hold Me Tight

Hold Me Close, Hold Me Tight ~ Photo by Patrice

Hold me close, hold me tight 
thru the long day
into the darkest
darkest night. 

Let no one come to harm 
me or mine 
let the world turn quietly 
without any
any crime. 

This I pray, this I wish 
that you hold me close 
hold me tight
with all your gentle
gentle might.

Your heart is not stolen 
Until 
You meet a small puppy.

Thinking, Wondering Where I’ve Been

Road is Clear - Photo by Patrice

Thinking, wondering where I’ve been
And where
I’m going to go.

Then the road opens
The path seems clear
All I have to do is

Start from here.

Sleepy Tired

Sleepy tired
Worry wakes me in the night
Toss turn
Feeling no sleep
As anguish plays on my sleepless stage
In a darkness with no saving light.

Maybe in the morning
All will be clear
A path opening up, a way from here to there
But tonight greeted with only so many questions
Keeping me sleepy tired
In a dim, dark hopeless night.

Quietly

Quietly ~ Photo by Patrice

 

Quietly I lay 
waiting for the sky 
to take away 
all the hurt, pain 
I experienced 
yesterday 

Quietly, quietly I lay.

Butterfly Flutters

Butterfly and Flowers ~ Photo by Patrice

Butterfly flutters
Breathing in sunlight
Going from left
To right
Landing on a flower
That feeds just right.

Beauty encompasses
Wings in flight
Staying still
Only a second
To take a taste
Of the drink of life.

See The Rings

See the rings
The rings of life
See them circle
Bringing
Embracing life
Different colours
Different lines
Going round
Since
The beginning of time.
