Memories And Experiences

August 12, 2020

Nurse Shark ~ Photo taken in Punta Cana

No one knows nor do I share
The experiences I’ve had
Way back
Way back there.

Memories remain unspoken
Words are held with care
Just in case those thoughts
Come out
Get spoken somewhere.

Let It Go

August 11, 2020

No I won’t, no I can’t
Nothing is that great
To fight all to get it back

Let it go, let it be
The sun will shine
Regardlessly

I know you know
I think you see
This to be true

In your heart, in your soul
Respectfully.

Why has it happened
Where will I be
When oh when will it move on
To the past so far behind me?

Answers
Answers I don’t have
Answers I wish someone
Would share with me.

When I Was Lost

August 7, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

When I was lost, nowhere to go
She was there
This I know.

Holding still
Sitting quietly next to me
Not on a chair
But a presence
I could feel, I could not see.

Quietly she spoke
Her hand reaching out
Caressing my spirit, my soul
This being called
Me.

She told of things
That would be
She told me I would succeed
She told me, she told me
Everything.

Her voice so calm
Her touch so light
Her presence it could light
The darkest night.

An angel perhaps
A passing soul, who knows
But by my side
She lived, she stayed
She goes.

I Feel Your Presence

August 6, 2020

Fall Leaves ~ Photo by Patrice

I feel your presence
I feel your breath
Warm and sweet
Upon my neck.

I reach for your arms
Your body most sublime
But empty handed
Here I stand.

I think I have lost my mind
My soul mourns
Wails a tale of sadness
Laughter gone.

Maybe tomorrow
I’ll join you
In the bye, in the already
Long gone.

Let The Grass Grow

Let the grass grow tall and fine
The waters flow while ivies climb.

All is well for the sun glows bright
In morning’s wondrous light.

You Pick Me Up

August 4, 2020

When I fall
you pick me up
my life is saved

My heart
also
is picked up

Safe and serene
standing straight up
I feel your presence, I feel your love

And that’s when
I race
to another

who needs me
to
pick them up.

My New Pink Pen

July 30, 2020

My New Pink Pen ~ Photo by Patrice

My new pink pen

Flows along the lines
Leaving behind thoughts
Coming thru my mind.

My new pink pen

Laughs along the lines
Saying funny things
Leaving a smile on
My reader’s face.

My new pink pen

Doesn’t take no guff
It writes words needed
To tell the story right.

My new pink pen

Lays quietly on my page
Waiting for the words
To be created
Formed into lines
Sent out for all time.

My new pink pen

Has a mission
The reason she’s livin’
I give thanks for having

My new pink pen.

Thinking About The World Today

July 29, 2020

Golden in Trouble ~ Illustration by Patrice for Dogs In Canada Magazine

Thinking
About the world today
About all the people who have
Died
Passed away.

Most not their fault
A virus
A plague raced thru
Taking
Their lives away.

Sadness
Not gladness
Is the atmosphere
In this
Our world today.

Pull It All Together

July 28, 2020

Teddy Bear Ripped ~ photo by PatricePull it all together
Make it the best
Don’t let the answer
Doubts
Beat upon your chest.

Breathe freely
Breathe with no regrets
For nothing else matters
Except, except.
~ Patrice
