Biography of Patti Williams
I've been an artist all my life and just recently started writing poetry. I LOVE art of all kinds and love reading! In 1985 a man attacked me, crushing my skull and raped me. I was declared dead upon my arrival at the hospital and was in a coma for awhile, but when I came out of it, I was determined to live life like I'd never lived before! I believe we waste so much of our lives not doing things because of fear... I just plunge into everything head on and have the time of my life... so I really must acknowledge that it had a profound affect on my life, I am LIVING it and participating in it instead of just existing in it and watching it go by. I love contributing to others and enjoy creating and nurturing!
Patti Williams Poems
Lou Gehrig's Bat
Lou Gehrig was a baseball player, Hitting baseballs hard and true!
Walking through the ice and snow, Moonlight casting a blue/white glow,
We Become What We Resist
Seeing hypocrites everyday, We shake our heads and turn away.
Als, The Quiet Killer
No more tender moments. No more soft caress.
The Name Of The Game
Never before could I have seen In what direction things would lean.
As I approach this crossing, my eyes straight ahead. I feel the unknown calling, a twinge of doubt is fed.
Spirits In Flight
My first flight in a glider plane! There you were... in the air. You flew beside me - touched my hair!
The universe draws two spirits together- Two spirits unite, are one forever. Searching through time and space they see How love carries them on through eternity.
Skipping Across The Moon
Her hair lifting on the wind Sent sprays of fragrance all around. She sensed the message being sent Though she never heard a sound.
Take A Chance
Some of us live our lives inside a shell Like crabs, retreating to our cell. Picking away at what washes ashore, Throw some out and pick through some more.
By The Fire
She's sitting by a fire watching sparks swirling by, Feeling so alone, trying hard not to cry. Remembering her husband who's been dead 3 years now, How he used to sit beside her by the fire and lay her down.
Be The Cause
Why do we listen when they say it can't be done? Why do we care when they tell us that the game can't be won? Nothing's over 'til it's over and of this you can be sure, So why let go of victory when the desire to win is yours?
Searching through the ends of time; One existance to another. Watching treads of life unwind, There is no time to recover.
Born Of The Sea
Born of water, salt and wind; seaweed in my hair. Longing for the ocean's depths, seldom needing air. Serenity in the moonlit waves, lapping at the shore. Riding the waves' rise and fall, contents my very core.
I have seen the splendor of the moonlight on the waves.
The brilliance of the sun sparkling playfully in the day.
I have seen the glory of life being spawned at sea...
I have seen many things; I have seen the sea.
I have heard the call to dinner of gulls upon the beach.
The songs of the great whales as they begin to breach.
I have heard the crash of mighty waves all around me.
I have heard many things; I have heard the sea.
