Working Thru

Working Thru ~ Photo by Patrice

In the midst of working thru 
What bothered me
In the dark, dead of night 

Frightened, scary, morose 
And all those things
That I need not care about
Nor harbour in my heart 

Not now 
Or in the still 
Dead quiet of the night 

No, I need not.

I Know I’ve Been Lost

I Know I've Been Lost ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

I know
I’ve been lost 
in the wilderness
low self esteem 

Climbing out 
has been hard 
rocks, crevasses 
unholy shards
pierce my skin, my life
my thoughts 

Still I climb 
I push, pull and shove 
a glorious world 
full of
grace, courage

I Know

I know ~ Watercolour by Patrice

I know
my heart is broken 

I know
life has stood still 

I know
I must move forward 

I know
my head, my heart, my legs, my feet are standing still 

I know
that anguish will be a ever present 

I know
that tears will flow 

I know 

I know 
but still 


I love you so.

Fully In Love

Fully In Love  ~ Photo by Patrice

I know you haven’t been
Fully in love
No matter what is said
What is seen.

You smile and laugh
You offer your hand to help
But still, still part of you
Doesn’t love, doesn’t feel

I Know You Haven’t Been

I know you haven’t been ~ Watercolour by Patrice

I know you haven’t been
On my side nor in between
Still I feel
You will come to be
A fan of all I’ve done
All I’ve been.

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.

You Didn’t See

Monkey Head Rock in Costa Rica ~ Photo by Patrice

You didn’t see the things
I saw
Nor did you feel the feelings
That I felt.

Still in my mind
I know
You know what I saw
What I felt.

And you alone will bring me
To the place
A place
I’ve always sought.
