Christmas in Miami

Nestled in our beds at 76 degrees...
Twinkling lights sway in happy palm trees !!
We followed the sun for a tropical dream,
Leaving behind days of wintry schemes
Once or twice a luxury fireplace glows...
Flow of snow?, try "Main Street", Disney world
Parrot heads sing "Wasting away in Margarita ville!!"
Our Winterfest boat parade, so chill..
So we won't have a White Christmas, ever …
Only sunshine and beaches in warm winter pleasure !!
Flip flops and shorts, sipping eggnog delight,
Missing up north,  on that one lone night ...
Merry Christmas to all my Blogger friends!!  ~Pattyb


Dream catcher weaves in the dark night 
for souls of weeping on a weary flight
A Holy Night, the stars so bright
my dream for peace, estranged 
As morning has built a perfect winter frame
Memories feather into daylight 


Angelic Glasses

Kings of lineage drape garments of love
- o'er their fruit-
Will they walk like you?  Will they wear your suit?
Your prayers waltz ageless, Your glasses Exquisite
Rims of rainbows foretold their happy ending 
In the night hands are folded, a battle etiquette
Its all they have - its all you hold 
Precious diamonds in the rough with stories untold 
Angelic glasses stand guard against the foe 
Opulent are the battled rims of Nana's halo
The council of glasses show the pathway to life
Passing the glasses will not keep them from strife 
Underneath are the "Everlasting Arms" in a storm 
Angelic glasses will keep them coming home... 

With Love ~pattyb

A Christmas Story 

Faith Mountain

As dawn approaches the present seems laborious
Silence at night... no way out.. is cumbersome 
In the valley, where self is alone 
Success lies behind the open door 
The mountain Has to MOVE as your spirit writes the score
Strength is in the truth that you face in your reflection 
Hope for the weary seen in a blind connection
Sojourn up the mountain side in "His Hand" 
What closed could be .. ...."His plan"



Light speaks to an image 
Surrounding my own eye
As footsteps scuttle into fate
My selfie will survive !!

With love, ~Pattyb n Mr Pattyb 


Carried away kindly... long ago
If I got fooled again,  I wouldn't know...                                                               
Forbidden moments - in flush summer sun
A cappella moon captured young love 
Another enchanting summer begins
Wistful tears.. restrain...  of what was then
Solstice spellbound reverses the wind
Now our paragon is to remember when...



On a subtle night, a gentle soul 
knew it was goodbye
Fearless Mariposa...
evening surrounds the sky
As blind is to faith
Oh Humble Mariposa...
your eternity had begun 
Life gave to you such sorrow .......
yet you smiled embracing Home  
Now silent, sweet Mariposa...
you gifted me to soar  
Embrace your Crown, oh Southern Belle..
you earned your sapphires and gold  

Ode to my Beautiful Mariposa 

....till evening bids me farewell....

Love you Mom,  

Till we meet again... 


Day by day, the Eagle calls to guide them ...
As the gifted pundit deluge of words,
drown a captive in the perfect storm 
Our Eagle inspires us to sail on ..
As we gather daily to seek a course
Shipwrecked as one, on an island of madness !!          



Eternity,  a paragon of tomorrow...
How shall I know you? 
I embraced a glass image 
On a Carousel of Eternity 
Where absolute lies everywhere...
Many abandon Eternity today, 
Come ride on amazing grace in the air !!

With love, ~Pattyb

Cobblestone Eyes

Cobblestone whispers to you 
Follow me...
Sacred feet,  iconic... 
While I'm standing in time... running for life -
Falling to a steady climb...


Aren't we a snollygoster family !!
Alas to the bobble heads that nod
Blue and Red dressed in coat of arms 
Dancing to lies under the same old barn 
Are "WE" the people cheated again?
Just a little sonnet for us who refrain
Intrinsic in a moment of creed,
Cant we "ever" see to agree ?
Who will walk in "our" shoes, Please? 




Dwelling in a parched vision
... a desert of mine...
Please quench my thirst, 
doubt will not oblige...
The spell was evanescent in
the refuge of a Rock
A love oasis was overflowing  
Drink of joy in the morning...


In the dubious corner of my heart
 lies a thorn-
A masterpiece, is yet borne
A vile twist of fate to my soul
Herein lies the demur 
Beauty in contentment-
a bittersweet prize I fight for... 


Anomaly of mind
 - the selfish kind - 
Today's burden quietly defined 
Hiding in realism is
a dark, lonely prison...
Love dawns at midnight
breaking the chain of sight
for hope in tomorrow ...


Clouds were balanced over an abode of light 
A wounded warrior draws from the scabbard within
to find reserve for the night of day 
How can the darkness linger? 
When the sword of the spirit is reborn...
I cherish the good days of old 
I have survived unkind days of defeat
If tomorrow comes for me
 .......I have embraced my many years
as my sword within disappears .....

With love, ~Pattyb

Another Day

She blinks while the clock ticked empathy
Yesterday is crouching at her heart,
it desires her...
She pours another cup of logic 
Black swirls endlessly 
Her conscience argues, be yourself
Master it .... Confidently 
As time slips away into the world that 
challenges her..
Today is our time to change with her ...

Where would we be without Gods love?


Pleasure and sorrow,  take a bow 
Life a surreal moment, then gone 
Only tell your story well, 
Travel down as grace dwells..
Oh Keeper of Life, grant irreversibly
Daybreak to sundown, for me 

With love, ~Pattyb
