The Sun Shines Bright

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.

Anger Mounts, Consuming Me

February 11, 2016

Old House ~ Photo by Patrice

Anger mounts, consuming me
No help in sight, it seems
Not for me.

Then, I turn about
Then, I see
A world full of majesty.

Holding out a hand
A love envelopes
Consumes me.

Not a breath I take
Is it done on it’s own
Or just for me.

I am part of the universe
That holds, loves, surrounds
As it protects me

Then, I know
No anger mounts
Consuming me.

I Look Around And See

I look around and see
Exotic birds flying
Pass me
Bluejay, nuthatch
And chickadees
With a house wren
Every now and then.

While a cardinal
Sings a song
I don’t recall just now
I see a hummingbird
Hovering all around
Of me.

Ah, the beauty
The beauty
That surrounds me.
