My Mind Does Wander

September 23, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

My mind does wander
My mind does see
Glories
In all their splendour
From here to eternity
Revel in their existence
Marvel that they be.

Yes, my mind does wander
My mind does see
Beauty all around
Beauty for all to see
Beauty in my heart
Beauty
Caressing me.

I Am Me

September 22, 2016

Joanne & Cliff ~ Watercolour by Patrice

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.

When The Answer Does Arise

September 21, 2016

When the answer does arise
May I be ready, not surprised
May I act upon
The words filtering thru
My head to my heart
Unperturbed.

No one else will hear
That sound meant for me
But I must recall
All the times leading up to this
Not forcing me, just acting on
The answer resting on my lips.

Anyone Here?

September 20, 2016

2 Friends ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Anyone home? Anyone here?
Can’t see the sky
It seems so full of fear
Can’t hear the song of birds so dear
Can’t feel the warmth of the sun so bright
Feels cold, cold as a freezing night
Does anyone know? Does anyone care?
Don’t know the answer
Even if the question hasn’t been asked
Is anyone, anyone here?

The Meeting Of My Mind

September 19, 2016

Shiloh ~ Pencil Art by Patrice

With the meeting of my mind
Seeing
Feeling all
That can be kind.

Acting on the narrow line
Lost
Between ridiculous
And the most kind.

No one has to tell
The outcome
Or
The story well.

Just be there
In the moment
Give
Offer kindness well.

Figure It Out

September 16, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

German Rottie ~ painting by PatriceFigure it out one step at a time
Walk with pride
Sidestep
Even if you have to duck and hide
No matter the reason the answer is there
Its up to you to find out where.

I Find My Heart Cold

September 15, 2016

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.
~ Patrice
