Swirling, Whirling Round

Swirling, whirling round
What is right, what is wrong?

My heart doesn’t know
My mind denies
My breath gasps in
My soul cries.

I wander
Taking in, looking out
What is this all about?

A Lot Of Thoughts In My Head

February 25, 2016

Rottie Pups ~ Painting by Patrice

A lot of thoughts in my head
A lot of thoughts
That have not been said.

Swirling, racing round
Racing thoughts
Racing in my head.

Some thoughts I’ve done
Some will rise up
To their vision high
Others will wither, die.

Then too, they’ll become
Just another thought
I thought
In my crazy, thoughtful head

I thought, I said. ~ Patrice

Stomach Churning

Right Path ~ photo by Patrice










Stomach churning
Thoughts swirling

Don’t know
What’s right
Or wrong.

Strong feelings
Moving me
Moving me along.

Get a hold
Get a grip
Focus and stay
A bit.

See right
From wrong
Know which path
To travel along.

Heartache Joyous Flowing Down

January 23, 2013

Heartache joyous flowing down
Releasing sadness all around.

Making love a thing of the past
Making sorrow ever last.

Melancholy thoughts abound
Swirling, twirling, I hear the sound.

Make me happy, make me see
This hardship is not my destiny.
