Watching, Listening

October 12, 2021
Watching, Listening ~ Photo by Patrice

Listening to the wind 
Wind thru
The holes in my heart 
Left by the likes
Of you. 

No more
To be the same 
Never more, never more
I tell you 
As the melancholy wind 
Blows thru.

Things happen at a
No one knows the road to go
Down a path
With all sorts of things
For the sun to show
Filled with glamour unsurpassed by
Yes, I’m watching

Sun Shines Bright

Sunlight on Water Photo by Patrice

Sun shines bright
Holding life
With all it’s might
Watch it unfold
As the day goes by
Nothing by accident
Nothing passed by
An insect crawls
A hawk flies
Someone laughs
A blissful sun rise.

Evening Blends

Evening Blends ~ Photo by Patrice

Evening blends, comes alive
Making darkness
An ever changing tide
Moving in, out of places
Like water’s course
As silence’s breath breathes quietly
Watching, waiting for the conclusion
Of someone’s destiny.

Where Will It End

Where will it end? Where did it begin?

Answer not there
Nor has it been
Obvious to us watching
Listening in.

Danger, Danger

Danger, danger
Lurking in the dark
Standing there
Waiting, watching for the time
When the mind
Isn’t paying attention
Isn’t expecting anything
Like this awful crime
Danger, danger
Make it so it isn’t mine.

Herald The Coming Storm

Thunder Storm ~ Photo by Patrice

Herald the coming storm
Dark of night enveloping
With mighty might
Crossing over land
Making creatures cringe
While most don’t understand.

Here I am
Waiting, watching, listening
Holding on
As the coming storm
Keeps coming on.

Watching The World

Moving Pass ~ Photo by Patrice

Watching the world in front of me
Busy, gracefully happy
It is what it is and can be.

Part of my dream, my fantasy
Not a word is said, no thunder clap
Only conveyed heartfelt courtesy.

With this and that sitting here quietly
Smiling joyfully
Watching the world unfold in front of me.

I sit inside watching
The goings-on
Going on outside.

Then it was over.
And I stood on the precipice watching my heart flow away.
