Poets

Heard them say 
their words with feeling 
Heard the tone
and
plaintive call. 

Knew my words
compared to theirs
were small  
overall. 

Understand
they have the stature 
believe
their words say
it all 

But
I look within myself 
and know
I still have to write
those words given me 
I have to answer
that 
inner call.

I Come To Be

August 2, 2018

Lazy Summer Days ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

In the morning I come to be
In my joyous place laughing, happy
All as it should be.

As a mourning dove gives it’s plaintive call
Cars pass knowing nothing of my life
Not at all.

Birds sing, squirrels jump from branch to branch
On the hunt for the perfect breakfast,
Dinner, lunch.

Flowers bloom, waving petals in a quiet breeze
While a fly buzzes, irritating for sure
But still a life that lives, that breathes.
~ Patrice
