Can I Be Vain

September 28, 2022
Can I Be Vain ~ Photo by Patrice

Can
I be vain? 

Laugh
and
show distain
for that
which I don’t appreciate? 

Would I be judged
and
found to be a shallow
miserable entity? 

Can
I afford to be?

My Heart

September 16, 2022

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Diva and Lise Painting ~ Watercolour by Patrice

My heart rules, my heart says
Be the best and then leave the rest
Don’t look for bad nor tolerate those
That bring it.

My heart hears all kinds of things
Water crashing on distant shores
A baby bird looking for some more
The calling of a lonesome wolf.

My heart feels the touch of necessity
A coffee warm, so tasty
The gentle caress from one
So loved.

My heart does all these things
While beating life and breathe
Into everything.

Soley 
my heart does ache 
for ones taken 
as 
angels bring to heaven 
these innocent people 
who’ve lost 
their precious lives. 

What is the reason why? 

My heart aches 
I weep, we weep 
We cry.

The Answer

Already heard
the answer 

Made my decision 
right or wrong 

Will believe 
in
that answer 

Made clear
and
so profound.

Memories

Memories ~ Photo by us

Memories come 
Then
They pass 

I ask the question 

Did they really happen 
Or
Was I in a dream  
That wasn’t part
Of my past? 

Memories vague
Sometimes
Vibrant as if they happened
Yesterday 
Not long ago 
In a distant, distant past. 

I’ll remember, smile
And be
Reliving memories 
Remembering
A past that was
Really me.

I Have Felt

I have felt
and
still feel you here 

I know
know you are forever 
with me there 

I’ll try my best 
to let you lead me 
where I need to go 

Guiding me 
thru
that treacherous path 

Coming out to a world
full of love and beauty
unsurpassed.

I Have Nothing To Say

July 6, 2022
I Have Nothing To Say ~ Illustration by Patrice for New Chalice Brushes

I have nothing to say 

– Today –

Words are none 
mute and quietly nothing 

I may say 
great words of wisdom 
in coming days 

But for now 

– Today – 

I have nothing to say.

I Told

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. 
~ Patrice
