Heaven Help The Ones

May 24, 2018

Whales Tail Beach in Costa Rica ~ Photo by Patrice

Heaven help the ones
Who lead the march
Across desert bare
Filled with trees
But nothing there.

Smoking hot
The earth upon their feet
Sending curses up
To gaunt, hollow cheeks.

No one calls, no one speaks
All is silent
Except for wailing
Seeping, creeping sounds
Calling, calling souls
To their sad defeat.

Let us help
Let us find salvation for
Those who need
Those who cry unmercifully.

Travelling Down A No Return Road

First of  Winter Road ~ photo by Patrice

Travelling down a no return road
Going forward pass signs
On this winding, bending road
That tell me what’s ahead
Sometimes full of anticipation
Sometimes only dread.

Going forward
Not looking back
Not using a rearview mirror
To see behind
There’s no use in using that.

On the side of this my road
I’m passing beauty there
Just up to me to behold.

My salvation
May be at the end
Of this my own long road
But the journey to that place
Is up to me to unfold.

I Drink My Coffee

April 19, 2013

I drink my coffee
I sip my tea
I struggle in the morning
Just to be me.

Then in the afternoon
It all becomes clear
Salvation from questions
I have no answers to
No answers for
Those I hold dear.

As night settles in
And my heart quietly rests
I see I’ve been tested
And survived with the rest.
