I Have Been Feeling

I have been feeling
Not so great
Everything matters
But not at stake.

The life I live
Must be honoured
No too hard
Nor can’t be done.

Understand I can
And
Will overcome.

Before The Light Begins To Fade

Before the light begins to fade
See the beauty in all you survey
Let no small thing be overlooked
As you feel your heart pounding
In a life lived with gratitude
Giving all
No matter what comes to be
This, I think
We need to see.

Leaves

Old Tree - Boyne River ~ Photo by Patrice

One Day
The trees were bare
The next
Leaves were there
Cascading
Waving in the breeze
Hiding treasured nests
Deep within silent
Green leaves
Soaking up the sun
Drinking in the rain
Leaves
breathe life
Into a mighty tree again.

Hear My Heart Call

Hear my heart call
Hear that quiet voice
Murmur words of love
Filling all with grace.

Hear my heart call
Words to ease the pain
Sounds made from
A sweet refrain.

Hear my heart call
I’m not alone
Forever with me
In all my journeys.

Hear my heart call
Listen, listen to that sound
Hear my heart
Hear my heart call.

I’ll Take A Stand

May 27, 2022

My Feet ~ Photo by Patrice

I’ll take a stand
And hold still
No breath will breathe
No heart beat
Only sounds are my feet
Standing still, holding fast
Protecting all
That must now last.

Then the gull cries
Mustering forces
That heed that shrieking call
Not forlorn, not alone
I stand, holding still
Upright, strong and tall
We’re together
And together we will conquer all.

Procrastination, procrastinating

May 20, 2022

Procrastination, procrastinating
Get it done now
– maybe

Guilty, guilty, guilty

See it done later
– maybe

In the meantime
I’m sure
– positive

I’m not lazy

Just don’t want to do it now
– too busy

If I put it off
I’ll always have something to do
– crazy

Procrastination, procrastinating
See it done later
– maybe.

Did You See?

Did you see?
Did you see the beauty
Reigning all around me?

Did you see the magnificence
Holding me
Embracing me?

Did you see the soul
Who told me
I was loved unconditionally?

Did you see, did you see?

They ran.

Saw me around.

Make no mistake
The heart is needed
To cover all the hurts
That
The silly head
May make.

Pathetic And Sad

April 22, 2022

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Old House Window ~ Photo by Patrice

Pathetic and sad
He goes forth
The essence of bad.

No one curtails
No one dare tell
The evil one
He is going to wither
In hell.

He doesn’t know
It doesn’t have to be so
He could be happy
And glad.

All that’s required
Is to be open, generous
Considerate and mostly
Not angry, bitter
Or sad.
~ Patrice
