The Snow Comes

November 3, 2021
The Snow Comes ~ Watercolour by Patrice

The snow comes 
It does blow 
Winter’s breath is cold 


In the spring 
Blizzards are forgotten 
With the dawning of warmth 
The beauty 
Growing flowers bring 

Melting into summer 
Hot, humid 
Splashing in warm water 
Watching waves wash
To and fro 

Fall doesn’t matter 
For it seems dying
The main thing 


Really nothing dies 
Only preparing
For a long hibernation 
That winter winds
Soon bring.

Leaves Falling

Leaves falling
Leaving all the ground
A quiet sound. 

Stirring leaves 
Here and there 
Falling from branches 
Now left bare. 

Thru the winter
All quietens down 
Passing storms bring
The only sound 
Branches cracking 
Blowing down. 

In the spring
Life will come 
Bright and warm
Into summer’s sun.

Full circle in the fall
Once again
We’ll see
Leaves fall.

Words Of Praise

Words Of Praise ~ Photo by Patrice

I do write 
I don’t sing
Of the sun, the moon
Nor spring. 

The words are written down 
One letter at a time 
In the future someone will
These words of praise 
I bring.  

Til then
They’ll stay 
In my book, on my page 
Written to be read 
These words of praise.

Leaves Turn Brown

September 16, 2021
Last used Sept. 16/21

The leaves turn brown from green 
Last gasp of summer it seems 
Leaving it’s presence on the ground 
No more to be
Til the harsh winds of winter blow 
And bring
A pleasant, delightful renewing spring.

Cold Drips

Cold drips
It wains
Sun warms
Summer are on the horizon
If you stand on a tall hill
You can see them

 Wondrous ~ Photo by Patrice

I’ve heard, I have seen
Things so wondrous
Just can’t believe.

Trees growing
living being coming to life
in the spring
bearing fruit summer
in between falls to winter
when they seem to be

One wonder to behold
to be seen
may be ordinary
if you stop, look and listen
miraculous it will become
wondrous it will seem.

The Sky Is Beauty

The sky is beauty
Flowers be
The most beautiful
Anyone could ever see.

Summers’ come
It’s weaving a warm, soft web
Enveloping all spring’s brought
From winter’s dread.

Grass Grows Up

May 1, 2019

Baby Robins ~ Photo by Patrice

Grass grows up
From falling spring rain
As nutrients blend
Into earth parched cold
From winter’s freezing reign.

Optimistic and hopeful
Flowers bud
To warm sun rays.

Babies of all kinds born
Guarded lovingly by
Mothers, fathers working tirelessly
Feeding open mouths
Sometimes hard to attain.

Spring has come
The air is full
With a sweet, melodic refrain.

There I Am

Rising Fiddle Head ~ Photo by Patrice

There I am in my robe
Watching closely as the earth disrobes
All it’s ugly, nasty things
Rising up in beauty
Filled with summer and with spring.
Winter’s cold, bitter hate
Melted here, no distaste
Only warm, fulfilling beams
Creating more lovely dreams.

Bless the ground I stand upon
Know it gives me faith true and strong
Trusting I’ll be here long after
Spring flowers fade and go
But memories of what has been
Or yet to come
Will hold my own sheltering robe so tight
That I know I will be safe
On earth’s soft ground tonight.

Sweet Water Greets

Hummingbird and Feeder ~ Photo by Patrice

Sweet water greets those flying from the south
A long time since said goodbye
Now spring beckons them to our house
Heavy, sweet ruffled feathers
Shook out to contain some heat
Refilled from drinking that that’s sweet.

Tiny and big spring flowers bloom
Holding up their coloured petals
To the sun and to the moon
Sweet nectar deep inside
Lavish feast for who knows where it resides
Hovering there in spring.

Welcome back my little summer friends
Who harrow spring and winter’s end
Let summer too be about to begin
Trust your journey was a easy ride
On currents blowing up
On south’s humid tide.

We’ll share the warm summer’s breeze
You’ll drink sweet water
Til leaves begin to fall
Then on currents you’ll fly away
Drinking sweet water on your way
Back to a warm, south southern day.
~ Patrice
