Gentle And Kind

October 17, 2017

Diva & Lise Painting ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Gentle and kind
My soul holds my mind
Caressing softly.

Gentle and kind
I hear the words I need
So divine.

Gentle and kind
My soul is
My nurturing wine.

Read A Sentence

October 16, 2017

Starting Points in Math ~ Illustration by Patrice for publisher, Ginn & Company

Read a sentence
Write a word
Hold the past
Create the unheard
See the future
Make it real
Now in the present
Feel, feel.

When You See Myself

October 13, 2017

Happy Convict ~ illustration by Patrice

When you see myself
You see someone else
Not the one I want to be
But the one I let you see.

Therefore
I will try to appear to be
The person who’s good for you
And most of all the best of me.

Let Me Tell You A Story

October 12, 2017

Hollyhock & Bee ~ Photo by Patrice

Let me tell you a story
Of things I cannot grasp
Holding on to everything
Just as if it was the last
Time I’d see you
The last moment to escape
All things I abhor about you
Holding onto ones
That make me understand you
But please make no mistake
It is a story
A story I will relate.

Seasons Of Life

October 11, 2017

Fall Flowers ~ Photo by Patrice

I feel the sadness, the dying life
Into hibernation
No movement til the unfrozen
Comes back, springs to life.

Melancholy knowing
The ground will hold still
Covered in snow
And frozen ice.

Through cycles of the land
Eons of living life
The world changes showing
Birth, growing, living, dying
In seasons of life.

Herself

October 10, 2017

View from the top ~ Photo by Patrice

The world has come presenting
Herself.

Showing what she’s made of
No excuses, no glorifying laude
Just the world made of
Herself.

Travelling Down A No Return Road

October 6, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

First of  Winter Road ~ photo by Patrice

Travelling down a no return road
Going forward pass signs
On this winding, bending road
That tell me what’s ahead
Sometimes full of anticipation
Sometimes only dread.

Going forward
Not looking back
Not using a rearview mirror
To see behind
There’s no use in using that.

On the side of this my road
I’m passing beauty there
Just up to me to behold.

My salvation
May be at the end
Of this my own long road
But the journey to that place
Is up to me to unfold.
~ Patrice
