Quiet Morning on the Deck
Quiet in the neighborhood
Hint of fresh mown grass

Dedicated to Mom and Millie
Lays in my lap
sleeps on my bed
best little buddy
I ever had.
Barks a tune
shares my meals
right on my heels.
Loves to boat
Once a lost soul
found his way here
now happy and healthy
nothing to fear.

Dedicated to my hometown Marietta, OH
A Stroll Downtown
Take a walk stroll downtown
check out the city, see who’s around.
See some friends, stop to talk
check out the headlines, continue to walk.
Smell fresh rolls at the bakery
only real frosting, no fakery.
Pass some new faces, a quick little Hi
not real friends, so no time to bye.
Look in the window of the antique store
same old stuff, just a bore.
Enjoy my walk, strolling down main street
clean and friendly, really neat.
Interesting display of summer shoes
tennies in white, colors and blues.
A small friendly town, I call it home
friends all around, I’m never alone.

Tops of trees
waving in the breeze
sky blue bright above
beauty to the eye
warmth to the soul
nature’s gift to all
Nature’s Gift – Poetry and Graphic by Patricia Walter 2016 ©
Growing and Blooming
a beautiful package
in abundance are found.
Natures gift to all
to share and enjoy
growing and blooming
from Spring to Fall
I’m so tired, my legs weigh a ton
feel like I raced, but hadn’t won.
Tank’s on empty, energy gone
not enough breath to sing a song.
Rest for awhile, sit in my chair
close my eyes or just plain stare.
Clear my mind, take a snooze
almost as good as taking a cruise.
Having a dream, running by the sea
feeling sunshine, it’s just good to be.
Wake with a start, a little fog
look around the room – see the dog.
Let’s go for a walk, I feel so good
the nap really worked, I knew it would.
