Terrible Things Happen

September 23, 2020

Terrible Things Happen ~ Photo by Patrice

Terrible things happen
In terrible times
Suffer and subjugate
Seems to be the way of life
In this certainly
Not a nursery rhyme.

Will I persevere
Will I see the light?
Questions, answers
Not seen tonight.

Maybe tomorrow
I’ll find my way
Maybe then joy will be
The cloud I ride upon
Spiriting me away.

Holding On

September 22, 2020

Holding On

Holding on to memories
I shared with you

Some good, some bad
We danced in sync

In a dance of life
Just we two.

I Find My Heart Cold

September 18, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Wicka ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

I find my heart cold
In charge of no life
Making no sound
Finding no life.

Lonely of course
Hardened and cruel
Seeking no justice
A master I’m sure
That is such a fool.

Sudden I hear
A kindness roar
Blood pulsing inside
Like opening a door.

For my heart is alive
Beating with life
Coursing with love
Creating a good life.

I See You Laughing

September 17, 2020

I see you laughing ~ Photo by Patrice

I see you laughing
Talking to me
Your heart
Your mind free.

It may be tomorrow
When we meet again
I look forward to
Whenever it is.

Til then
I’ll be my best
As I dream of that time
When I see you once again.

Today

September 16, 2020

Today ~ Photo by Patrice

Seething in the mist
Saddened by sorrow
Struggling to say
I don’t know why I let it effect me
Today.

Maybe tomorrow
Maybe later today I’ll feel better
I’ll let it go and celebrate
Everything sweet and beautiful
I experience just
Today.

Tic Tok Goes The Clock

Tic Tock Goes The Clock ~ Photo by Patrice

Tic tock goes the clock
Ticking time away
No hesitate
No wait, wait!

Time goes on
Thru night and day
The same time
The only time
Ticking time away.

A Hummingbird Came

September 14, 2020

A Hummingbird Came  ~ Photo by Patrice

A hummingbird came
he sat
on the the stair
his words were luscious
I knew he was there.

The beat of his wings
the flow of his heart
moved me to tears
I bowed down
I cried
I cried a lot.

For no more til spring
will I hear those sounds
as snow falls
baring down
on a land bleak
where
no hummingbird sounds.

Then
the snow will melt
the heavens wake
and
on his journey back
the hummingbird makes.

I am not a failure 

I am me

I am not a success 

I am me

I am not another 

I am me

I am me.

No One Seems To Know

No One Seems To Know ~ Photo by Patrice

No one seems to know
nor do they understand
the way to heaven
is always open
That
it’s there
Always
at their command.

Desperate Happenings

September 2, 2020

Desperate Happenings ~ Photo by Patrice

Desperate happenings
Unfolding tonight
Leaving wonder
Far in the distant twilight
No time for remorse
Anger and fury is what
Is coming tonight.

For tomorrow
In the board, bright daylight
Could it be all will be
As if it never happened
Never made you cry
In the dead of the dark
Dark night.
