May 24th Celebration Has Gone

May 24, 2016

May 24th Celebration in Jarvis ~ Photo by Patrice

May 24th celebration has gone
used to be festivities
All day long.

Nothing, no more celebrating
Can’t understand
How could all this pass?

Used to be dancing, parties, sing-along
Fireworks and baseball
May 24th celebration, all day long.

A Turtle Met Me Just Today

May 20, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

A turtle met me just today
While I was on my way
She wasn’t very cordial
Actually, awful antisocial.

Snapping, snapping
On what seemed
Her busy way.

The sun was shinning bright
On shell glistening
In the morning light.

What a time to see
A turtle there in front of me
She’s on her way
Must lay eggs today.

No time to doddle
No time to say
Good morning or good day
Must be on my way.

I met a turtle
Just today
A snapping turtle
By the way.

If I Could Speak And Say To My Younger Self

May 19, 2016

My Younger Self

If I could speak and say
To my younger self
The things I know today
I wouldn’t listen to myself
Berate and think I’m not worthy
Of love in anyway.

I’d say beauty doesn’t last
It fades away to something beautiful
Just in another way
What’s important now won’t be
In tomorrow’s day, so let it go
Let it fade away.

I’d tell her she’ll grow old
Live and laugh no matter what
Tragedy may come her way
That all she has to do is just love
Love and live each and everyday.

That’s what I would tell my younger self
If I could speak to her in
Yesterday.

Remembering When

May 18, 2016

Remembering when
Flowers swooned and turtles ran
Remembering when
Remembering when.

Somewhere Along The Way

May 17, 2016

Heron in the creek ~ Photo by Patrice

Somewhere along the way
My heart bled and sadness, sorrow
Washed away.

Somewhere along the way
I don’t know where or will I stay
Near or far, far away.

Somewhere along the way
My heart bled and washed
All thoughts of you away.

Somewhere
Somewhere along the way.

My Heart Softly Waits

May 16, 2016

Siegrun and her beloved dogs ~ Painting by Patrice

My heart softly waits
To make the connection
To the world of love
Not hate.

My heart
She softly waits.

Robin In The Nest That Be

May 13, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Robin in the nest that be
Built an impressive place
For turquoise eggs to be
In their little comfy nest
Do rest
Patience be

Keep an eye on all
That may be around
To harm
This little nest that be

Tucked away
Hidden in leaves
Where no one sees
This little nest
A robin’s nest
That be.
~ Patrice


Happy Birthday Sharon
and many more!
