Birds Fly In

February 6, 2023
Birds Fly In ~ Illustration by Patrice

Birds fly in, then fly out
Seeds are there, then gone
They’re out.

I’m sitting here
Watching, watching
All the goings-on
Go about. 

They don’t know
I’m here 
They don’t care
About my life, my goings-on. 

Cause they have
Their own life to live
Like sing, find seeds  
Fly about.

Do I

February 2, 2023
Do I ~ Pastel Art by Patrice

Do I do it 
Or
Leave it alone?

The question is asked
And
I know 
The decision to be made
The answer given 
Is
My choice
My choice alone.

Which way
Will I go 
Which one will I leave
Leave
All alone?

Tender Is

Tender is the life
I live.

Tender is the heart
That beats
Kindness to the world.

Tender is the soul
Who knows compassion
Gives.

Yes 
Tender is.

No More

No More ~ Photo by Patrice

No more
To
Tell

No more
To
See

Moving on
Not
Looking back

Nothing there

Nothing
Of
Quality.

I Haven’t Been

I Haven't Been ~ Photo by Patrice

I haven’t been
As close as I should have been
It seems life has dealt me
a heavy load
A load I think I need to carry. 

Please, if you could
Let me see where 
I can lay down
All that isn’t necessary. 

Giving me
The time, the space
To be the one
You need, I need to be
For an blessed eternity.

Secretly

Secretly ~ Illustration by Patrice

Secretly
I say the words needed to see
The goodness in bad
The needs needed
To be
Loved and lovingly.

Secretly
I say these words
With
Clarity.

I Don’t Know, I Haven’t Seen

January 24, 2023
I Don't Know, I Haven't Seen ~ Photo by Patrice

I don’t know 
I haven’t seen
the truth 
The answer to all
That seems so mysterious
But
Serene. 

Let me look some more
Let me see
The beauty nestled
In this day
Unfolding gently
Beautiful and pristine.

My Friend

January 23, 2023
My Friend ~ Photo by Patrice

Do I know you 
Have you been 

My friend? 

Will I know that in times of trouble
I can count on you
Once more, once again? 

Questions, answers
I say, ask  
Over and over again 

Still 
I don’t know for certain
You really are 

My friend.

In The Bowels Of Remorse

January 17, 2023
In The Bowels Of Remorse ~ Illustration by Patrice

In the bowels of remorse 
heartbreak
and
deep unrelenting
sadness 

Will strive
to come out
attempt to be happy
and
sane

Till that day
I’ll hear that sweet 
sad 
melancholy reframe

Playing
playing over and over 
and
over
over again.

I Have Nothing To Say

July 6, 2022
I Have Nothing To Say ~ Illustration by Patrice for New Chalice Brushes

I have nothing to say 

– Today –

Words are none 
mute and quietly nothing 

I may say 
great words of wisdom 
in coming days 

But for now 

– Today – 

I have nothing to say. 
~ Patrice
