The Early Morning Light

April 8, 2019

Costa Rican Sunrise ~ Photo by Patrice

I wake in the early morning light
Pondering my mission, my delight
No other knows
No other can conceive
The thoughts, the words
The images that come
Only to me.

The early morning light
Can be quiet
Still as the darkness left
Or filled with joy
Sounds singing, bringing forth
The board, bright daylight.

I will lay here
In the midst of my thoughts
The grey dawn getting ever so light
I will rise, knowing
What must be done
Beyond the early morning light.

There They Fall

August 8, 2018

Impatients amongst a Banana Palm ~ Photo by Patrice

Hear the raindrops fall
Cascading down on dry ground
There they fall.

Bringing life sweet water falls
Trickling over dusty rocks
Feeding parched grass
There they fall.

No wicked blizzard
Harsh winds none at all
Just quiet falling sweet raindrops
There they fall.

There I Stand

Cow Butts ~ Watercolour by Patrice

There I stand
Soul, hat in hand
Searching, looking for the right way
The right stand.

Should I turn left
Or maybe right
Go forward or
Retreat into the dark of night?

No answer comes
No word spoken clear
Quiet, gentle silence moves me
Our bond unbroken here.

Quietly moving past eternity
Into depths full of ecstasy.

Step forth into your realm
Saturated with the crown
Of great things done and to do.

All this, this is you.

My Hearts A Mess

April 27, 2016

Running First ~ Photo by Patrice

My hearts a mess
There is no rest
No peace, no quiet.

Racing, racing on
Racing fast
How will I ever last?

When can I see
Quiet and dignity?

When will I feel
My heart pump
A slow, soft, quiet thump?

Can’t hold on
Can’t see
How I got here, how to leave.

All I see is
My hearts a mess
There is no rest, that’s all I see, I all see.

2 Best Friends ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

Everything is quiet
Everything is nice


Everything is not ok
Everything can’t be nice

Hold the past in your arms
Embrace the future
With unprecedented charm


Everything is ok
Everything is without harm

Live the present
Moving thru the past
Holding the future in a grip
That will forever last


Everything is quiet
Everything can last.

For This New Year

January 8, 2014

Winter's Lane ~ Photo by Patrice

For this New Year
I must be quiet but active
Look to my Higher Power for support
Accepting, supporting of others
Thus reaping the rewards of the universe
I too, am a gift.
~ Patrice  

This, the Grace Cards tell me.
