Let The Healing Begin

November 29, 2022
Let The Healing Begin ~ Photo by Patrice

Let the healing begin

To heal the sins
That have been done
Against the very core
Of nature’s living
Breathing
Body and soul

Let the healing
Let it begin.

Lick Your Wounds

November 28, 2022
Lick Your Wounds ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

Lick your wounds
Forget your ego
Dust that battered self off
While looking
To the future

See what’s best for you 
Feel no regrets
Lose no sleep wondering why
What happened
Happened

Don’t go deep inside self-pity
Know this was a message
Sent 
To keep you well
Moving forward 

Not
Skipping a single
Beat.

No Holes Barred

No Holes Barred ~ Photo by Patrice

No holes barred 
No tales told 
Until the end has come, gone 
Did unfold.

When did it happen 
Where did it occur? 

No one knows 
But
It did happen 
It did occur.

Then I heard the calling voice say

Believe in yourself, believe today
Believing is the only way.

Catch Me If You Can

November 17, 2022
Catch Me If You Can ~ Photo by Brent

Catch me if you can
I’m falling deep down
That
Hurtful canyon

Hold my hand
Grasp it tight
Don’t like let go 
Till all that’s out of sight  

Then
Together we will go
You holding me
Me, so grateful.

Consequences

November 16, 2022
Consequences ~ Photo by Patrice

There are no rights
No wrongs 

Only 
Consequences 

To live with, to abide by
Understand 

Choices are made, lives changed
Right or wrong 

Makes no difference
For you live with 

The
Consequences

A Guiding Light

A Guiding Light ~ Photo by Patrice

Respect, gratitude
All needed
Felt
With a sincere attitude.

Let love hold you safe
Feel secure
In arms
That envelope you. 

Know
In the morning
Late at night
You’re not alone.

You have
A saviour, a protector
A guiding light
Holding you.

I Heard The Wild Goose Call

Poppy in Remembrance ~ Photo by Patrice

I heard the wild goose call
I heard her plaintive tone.

I bowed my head in honour
Of all those left
Left alone.

On the field of war and anger
In the battle
No one wins alone.

I heard the wild goose call
Come
Come bring your brave soldiers home.

Once Again

November 10, 2022
Once Again ~ illustration by Patrice for New Chalice Brushes

Once again I write
What I see
What I’m to hear as the words
Begin to be.

Sometimes so great
Sometimes just grim
But all those words need
Need to be written.

Spoken in text
To those that need them
Those to who
They were meant to be given.

My Heart Does Cringe

November 9, 2022
My Heart Does Cringe ~ Art by Patrice

My heart does cringe 
My soul weeps.

Happenings in the world
Are full of sadness, anger
Misery so deep.

How
Did we get here? 

When
Can we leave?

Questions – Answers
No one knows
No one speaks. 
~ Patrice
