Today Or Yesterday

June 8, 2018

No makeup on today
Or yesterday
Skin festering, itching burning
Hives have made their way
Onto my face, my neck
Above my heart
Everywhere it seems
Gasping for some respite
Scratched raw
Went seeking help
Not once but twice
Yesterday.

The world has turned again
For today
I have my peace, my rest
Skin reduced to normal
Not like yesterday
On rising this morning, today
No more itching
Scratching
Like yesterday.

Misty ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

This day is today
It’ll be tomorrow
Yesterday.

Can’t live without it
Yet see it pass away
Becoming a time in
Yesterday.

No longer tomorrow
Now today I’m living
Yesterday.

I’m Not Sure

March 15, 2018

I’m not sure what I’ll write
Something about yesterday
Maybe something
That will occur tonight.

No rules in place
No sayings to follow
Just hear that soft voice speak
And my writing, my words
They follow.

The Idea Came

The idea came
I think yesterday
All laden in glory, no more can I say.

The idea came
I don’t know from where
Out of the blue it was just was there.

The idea came
Quietly
No bolt of thunder or shouts of ecstasy.

So I must get busy, work away
And make it real
This idea that came to me yesterday.

A Hummingbird Came

Hummingbird and Feeder ~ photo by Patrice

A hummingbird came
To my window yesterday
She pleaded and begged
Me not to put away
That feeder which fills
Her each, everyday.

She needs calories
To fly away
On an epic journey
To warm, hot lands
Far far away.

Maybe tomorrow
She’ll leave
Before the snow flies
And the leaves
Are deceased.

So now, today
She pleads
Fill it up, leave it be
Help her get ready
For her long, long
Epic journey.

Teck, in Remembrance

When I think
Of all the things
That have disappeared
Gone away
Happened yesterday
My heart joins forces
With my soul
To help me understand
Why it all had to go away
Yesterday.

Beginning A New Year

January 3, 2017

Beginning a new year
A new day
Leaving all that’s bad
In yesterday.

Bringing with me
Only love and joy
Created there
In my yesterday.
