Classic Car ~ Illustration by Patrice for B.C. Central Credit Union

I go to write
Listening for the words to form
Pictured in my mind they come
They take their form
On the page they rest
Now said, now wrote.

I thank the presence
That brought them to my mind
Formed the thoughts to convey
And then
Without another word
Quietly slipped away.

The Sun Shines Bright

August 28, 2018

River Beauty ~ Photo by Patrice

The sun shines bright
Mists have blended
Into the water beyond
No one sees bees
No bats fly
In the expanse that surrounds

Nor does anyone hear
The cry
They’re gone, they’re gone

I rest, I sleep
Maybe there I’ll see
And
Seek a world that once here
Belonged.

Let Me Sleep

Let me sleep
Let me be the person
I need
And want to be.

Rest
Deeply sleep
Dream
And be oh so happy.

Vacant Thought

June 15, 2016

Vacant thought
Vacant lot in life
Not necessarily made totally right
By coming of night
Nor glorious morning light.

Sometimes best
To let the mind be at peace
To rest, vacant of any racing kind
Only tranquility residing
In a quiet mind,

Vacant
Of all troubling thoughts
No racing
Racing thru a night, a day, a life
A mind.

Deep In The Rest

June 22, 2015

Deep in the rest of sleep tonight
My soul does dream so vividly
Life is full, time is dear
Honoured by those held so near.

I awaken rested, never knowing
Time has passed
Troubles solved and circumstance
Seems not to be the threat I feared
So horribly.

No one drew or threw a veil
Upon my sight
Just goodness does
And will prevail.

I slumber now in perfect rest
No concern, no distress
Awakening to light cascading down
Upon my life where goodness
Does and will abound.

The Sun Shines Bright

Winter's Lane ~ Photo by Patrice

The sun shines bright
As the wind blows quiet like
The atmosphere breathes a restful breath
Eyes closed in winter rest.

Let me take it in
Feel warmth following the light
To a time when the sun shines
Even in the evening night.

Shingles Have Taken Over My Face

May 9, 2014

Black Coral ~ photo by Brent

Shingles have taken over my face
Pain and tingling, ravage taking place.

Pills medicate leaving sleepy
Laying down the only peace.

Mending now, I’ll take a rest
Hoping soon to be in a better place
With no shingles on my face.
