When The Time Is Right

July 20, 2018

Tiger ~ illustration by Patrice

When the time is right and my heart is not cold
When I see things clear from stories told
When madness isn’t a partner in that yet to unfold
When I can stroll thru sadness unscathed and bold.

Then is when my journeys mine
And I’ll hold no grief for that which is not or won’t be kind.

Hearing Nothing

July 19, 2018

Rocking Horse ~ Photo by Patrice

Hearing nothing, feeling all
How can I be in love
With nothing, nothing at all?

 With words I wander in my mind
Imaging scenarios, images of all kinds
Maybe won’t come to pass
Maybe will last and last.

Doesn’t matter
For I see, I feel
While hearing nothing
Nothing not at all.

Honestly, Can’t Remember Anything

July 18, 2018

My Younger Self ~ Selfie

Honestly, can’t remember anything
Nor who I am in another life
I’m sure I lived and had command
Of all the things
In a life I can’t remember
Don’t understand.

I See The Beauty

I see the beauty
The magnificence
In all the land.

As I stand in awe of all
She reaches down
She touches me
She touches all.

She understands.

I Cope

July 16, 2018

Boyne River at Old Mill ~ Photo by Patrice

In the heat of the moment

I cope

I learn to adjust
Not using mirrors, illusions
Or blinding smoke

I cope

Moving forward addressing
The matter, using kind words
Smiles and laughter

I cope

Nothing matters as much
As that I solve the issue
Adjust and move forward

That I cope.

I Was In Your Place

July 13, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

I was in your place, I saw your face
But
You didn’t recognize me.

In another life we laughed and cried
‘Friends for Life’ we said that’s how it would be
But
Now I see you don’t recognize me
I’m just a face in a ordinary place
And you walked right pass me
No ‘Friends for Life’
What a state it has come to be.

Just the other day I was in your place
Saw your face
But
You didn’t recognize me.

In A Time Gone By

July 12, 2018

Brandy ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

In a time gone by
We laughed, we cried
We joined hands to understand
The way life goes
No tears were lost
No embrace ignored
We lived it all
Life itself was our reward,
~ Patrice
