Pearls of Faith

Keeper of my daydream , who could foresee?
Self absorbed velvet rock- Me 
One enchanted morning....
Pearls shattered down coveted stairs 
Greed found shelter in quantity 
- walk by faith - not by sight -
what did I really "need" ?



Time arrived to postpone
tantalized I was alone
Sympathetic to memories
Time sits on the shelf - serene 
In respect, I will call you my friend
but please leave me alone today...
Bird feathers still sing
their courtship is planned
Brilliant lavender captivates land
If I cant count on your goodness
My time is in His hands ...

With love, ~Pattyb

Chiffon Blue

Sheer trial of small beginnings 
My persistent truth was yesterday 
Shall grace answer tomorrow
or will I let the day complain? 
Beyond the clouds of chiffon blue
Someday... I will break through 
I see the silver lining in you... 

With love, ~Pattyb


A picture wept darkness to the memory
So deceived - by a master of disguise ...
Deja vu ..... a phrase of sublime  
Affliction is the evil rider 
A minuet was frozen in time
The memory is over, the war has just begun 
One day at a time, Hope can overcome 

With love, ~Pattyb

Blue Diamonds

Faith clouds filled with sparkling blue diamonds 
A place for weepers clinch the tears 
Holy Angels declared a covenant 
...cast your care..
He has heard your prayers...              

With love, ~Pattyb

Define Success

Neurotic riddles confidence, although
Wearing higher power -  no one will know
Stress is a designer fashion - to express
Take time out to linger in juiciness  
Neighbor lady dragon sips her tea - hoping you'll fall 
Acquaintance scamps will smile
then out comes curve ball
One more step - in the mire of gainsay 
I refuse to shake hands with lazy, saw-ree 
Today could be your lottery, 
Tomorrow could be your bankruptcy  
Although neurotic is common in size 
Today is what your guaranteed 
come alive!!!
Define success - what it means to you
and while you do... 
You'll find me sipping my juicy tea at rest
Working to move toward a three figure address 

With love, ~Pattyb

Morning Glory

A seed submerged from deep within
Inside out ... patience can win!



Silhouette shadows dance on the street -
Gifted to play to the beat ...
♫ A classic concerto to a lavender rose ♫
First love carries you higher in repose
Memory was breathless -
Wrinkles intertwine as the shadow is now mist
Fateful sun sets with the last kiss...
Their performance- Spectacular ♫
As they take one final bow- 


Enchanting garden of Jasmine
among the vines of time  
Oh those beautiful seconds of life,
Sing praise through gray of prime
JOY, strength in the moment ...

With love, ~Pattyb
