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.

A Hummingbird Came

A hummingbird came to my window 
today 
not seen since 
in the fall 
when they all 
flew away. 

Sweet nectar she’s looking for 
needs right away 
hovering, looking in 
she tells me. 

Get it ready! 
Get it ready! 
Get it ready right away! 

The little hummingbird 
is 
hungry 
she’s flown such a distance 
from far 
far away. 

Now needs 
some sweet substance 
til 
all the blooms 
are 
on display. 

A hummingbird came to my window 
and 
told me all this 
just this morning 
just today.

Have I

How have I come to feel this way? 

Where will I go on this another day? 

Have I been there before? 

Have I passed by this way? 

Will I go beyond the horizon? 

Become lost in the sun’s rays? 

Answers I question 

Questions I’m asking 

Today.

Horrors Be

Horrors be 
can’t take them
away
away from the head 
they stay  
mentally. 

The body will heal 
but 
the spirit, the soul
keep 
those things into
eternity. 

We know we must 
must let them
go 
throw them away 
don’t let them
crush 
your spirit
your kind soul. 

Today, just today 
let them go 
no more in your head 
to fester
create dread 
let them go, let them go
instead.

Me and yours 
Today.

Golden rays of sunshine 
Drift thru the quiet day 
Today
Is the only thought 
For tomorrow does not yet exist.

We Work

We Work ~ Photo by Patrice

We work towards
a good ending 
we feel the ending come. 

Our hearts are remorseful 
knowing
this that’s to come. 

Will there be a tomorrow 
will it all end
today? 

Not ours to answer 
not ours
to know in any way.

Feelings Are Hard To Decipher

May 13, 2021

Feelings are hard to decipher 
anger, hurt, happiness or joy 
what are they trying to say? 

Maybe tomorrow
I’ll know 
I’ll have answers 
not known, understood
today.

Yesterday

Breach of the Capital Building ~ Photo by Jason Andrew

When it happened
What did you say
How did you rationalize
All the people breaching
The Capital building
Yesterday?

Nothing, no one
Can make it seem right
in
Today
Tomorrow
or
Yesterday.

Holding On, Holding Tight

December 30, 2020

Holding On, Holding Tight ~ Photo by Patrice

Holding on, holding tight
Trying desperately to make it
Thru the day into night.

No one to help, no one to say
Words of wisdom
Nothing on this day.

Where will I be, what will I say
In a world where I’m on my own
For today.
~ Patrice
