Memories cradle into summer's end 
I was in the moment ...  
Courage erupts from heart's lanai 
Empowered phantom fear to try 
Don't fault the season, embrace it...
A Perception of yesterday, as summer ends...

With love, ~Pattyb

September Sapphire

Dancing in sapphires of pretense -
Another year older, gifts me a chance
My father's vice - a mirror I stole
I forgot to borrow his control 
September has many secrets, unseen 
Heaven,  please wait .. to chaperon me ...
Blow out the candles to sooth the soul 
your prophecy lives on to unfold...

Happy Birthday Sapphires !!  ~Pattyb


The mind wanders as a Labyrinth
            Born to choose 
Maze of chagrin - Sweet child within  
Philosophy follows, where you begin..
