I Told

June 23, 2022
I Told ~ Illustration by Patrice

I told you not 

I told 

I told all
that would listen 

Told them how it was 
how it would be 

Now 

I’m telling you all

These precious things 
that have been 

And

Will be.

Live Til You Die

June 20, 2022
Live Til You Die ~ Illustration by Patrice

Don’t live your life 
in a way 
you know how you’ll die. 

Live a life worth living 
til that time, that time
you really do die. 

Let joy, happiness prevail
all trials, heartache pale with moments
when
your heart bursts in joyous cries
your eyes run tears of gratitude
your ears hear angels trumpet
stories.

Stories of your magnificent life.
the life, that life
you’re going to live. 

Till you die.

I Have Made It

June 7, 2022
1st in Trial Award ~ Me and my Great Faldo

I have made it 
even thou there were those 

Who said

It won’t be so
couldn’t be, would never be 

Hear their calls of criticism
hear their snorts of disbelief

Saying

I can’t do this 
this that I know I need too
know I can do 
can succeed and complete.

Thank You

Thank You ~ Photo by Patrice

Thank you
for
giving us a special boy

Who by being him
has mended a broken heart 

Breathed life
where there was despair

Given joy
where there was no hope

We thank you
Lizz

So very glad
we met, we spoke.

You Couldn’t Be

You Couldn't Be ~ Photo by Patrice

You couldn’t be 
what I needed 
wanted you to be. 

No matter
how hard you tried 
you couldn’t be. 

You couldn’t be 
all that I needed 
desired you to be. 

I see you couldn’t be 
you couldn’t be.

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.

A Hummingbird Came

May 11, 2022
A Hummingbird Came ~ Photo by Patrice

A hummingbird came to my window 
today 
not seen since 
in the fall 
when they all 
flew away. 

Sweet nectar she’s looking for 
needs right away 
hovering, looking in 
she tells me. 

Get it ready! 
Get it ready! 
Get it ready right away! 

The little hummingbird 
is 
hungry 
she’s flown such a distance 
from far 
far away. 

Now needs 
some sweet substance 
til 
all the blooms 
are 
on display. 

A hummingbird came to my window 
and 
told me all this 
just this morning 
just today.

Enjoying the day
Quietly.

Playing in the water
All alone.

From my deck
Secretly.

Smashing all.

With a leaf in their mouth
They ran.

Mourning the loss of one
Who’d died.

How could this be?

Quietly.

So scary.

But none, not a soul, no one
Saw me around.

My Thoughts

April 26, 2022
My Thoughts ~ Photo by Patrice

Won’t go back 

My thoughts were right 
the
first time. 

Don’t second guess those thoughts 
let them flow 
Telling you
all 
all you need to know. 

They know 

They are connected 
to
the universe 
and
there all thoughts
they
freely flow.

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
