Don’t Be Bitter Or Angry

June 22, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Don’t be bitter or angry
Just be happy and gay.

Don’t let them get you down
With their toxic chatter
Even in the darkest night
There always will be a guiding light.

Dance a light step down the pathway
Smile, laugh hysterically with delight
Being happy and gay
If only tonight.

Wondering Why Or Did I See

June 15, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Wondering why or did I see
How the heart mends
Without any seams.

Tragedy, chaos and most likely strife
Rip holes in my being
Then along comes kindness
Dipped in strength
Changing everything.

A smile, a laugh, a gentle caress
Hold me together
Thru anything.

I’m not wondering
I know, I see
With love my heart mends
Without any seams.

An Old Soul Once Told Me

June 1, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

An old soul once told me
‘Be kind, gentle and above all full of courtesy’.

Makes no difference that old soul you see
Was a dog I knew
Oh, just so briefly.

You Don’t Know What I Know

You don’t know what I know

You don’t feel what I feel

You don’t see what I see

You can’t hear what I hear

Because

You are not and never will be me.

Husk Falls

Seeds, Tree and Squirrel ~ Photo by Patrice

Husk falls, dropping to the ground
Seeds of wonder spattered all around.

Dead or dying not necessarily their fate
Taking food, taking strength
From the earth, the ground on which
They were spat, they grow and create.

Slowly, quietly up to mighty trees
Strong and wondrous they unfold
Dropping seeds that too
Like magic wonder, grow.

Wondering Once Again

Wondering 

Once again. 

Wondering 

What is best? 

Wondering 

If I’ll make the right decision. 

Wondering 

Will it affect the rest? 

Wondering 

What will come to be? 

Wondering 

What will happen to me? 

– No answers come but still –

Still I’m wondering. 

Wondering 

Just the same.

The Heart Is Mended

May 4, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Succulent Flower ~ Photo by Patrice

The heart is mended, the life is fine
No thought is taken
Of what happened back in time.

Moving forward, risking not
Becoming ice
In a land that’s hot.

Then in the midst of emptiness
She dares, she dreams
she dreams a lot.
~ Patrice
