Hallowed Ground Rises

November 21, 2017

Hallowed ground rises
Beneath my feet
Spreading joy for all those that seek
A life better than yesterday
As a heart beats just to stay
Here with us in today
Soft, tender feet tread
On gentle ground
Feeling love all around
Making no enemies friend nor foe
Only love
Laughter is what they sow.

Been

As I sit here thinking
Of what is to be
And been
My mind wanders to things
That have passed, have been.

There are no memories
As strong as those
That I’ve lived
Been part of
Those that have been.

Future dreams that I’ll be living
Won’t be nothing
Won’t be memories til
They’ve passed thru my living
Going into what has been.

Quiet

Quiet
Quietly moving past eternity
Into depths full of ecstasy.

Pause
Step forth into your realm
Saturated with the crown
Of great things done and to do.

All
All this, this is you.

I Feel A Heart Beating

November 14, 2017

Ursa's Birthday Party ~ Photo by Lorra

I feel a heart beating
Here in my own heart
I feel a sadness blue
I know I’ve lost a time
When I lost
Lost you.

 Moved on
But every now and then
I think
And that’s when
I find myself
Missing you.

Remember When The World Was Small

November 13, 2017

Remember when
The world was small
Worries, cares were nothing
To speak of at all.

No crashing down
Of a market
Not really existing
Not at all.

No change in time
It just moved forward
Regardless of everything
Anything at all.

No mushroom cloud
No toxic smoke
No weeping, wailing
All lost hope.

Those were to come
But when
The world was small
None of that mattered
Not at all.

We Must Remember With Hearts Filled

November 11, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

We must remember with hearts filled
With emotion seeing the way

Those who fought for freedom
On this very day.

Somber moments seeking the truth
Listening heartbeats showing the route.

You battled in cold, fought in the dark
Never once saying no more, so far.

Onward, forward you did advance
Not thinking or fearing any consequence.

Battles are fought, some never won
But moments of glory reign
Showing the courage
Of our daughters, our sons.

Hold that courage proudly
You stood in the moment
You wear the battle scar.

All I can do is salute and give honour to
The brave soldier you are.

All Three In A Row

November 10, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

All three in a row 
Sitting, resting nowhere to go. 

Pleasant and mild 
The height of haute style 
Sitting, resting
Certainly to be there awhile.

 Ah, doesn’t it make you smile.
