The Worst Is Over

January 21, 2021

The Worst Is Over ~ Photo by Patrice

The worst is over
The healing begins to mend
Silently
We hold one another
We know we are together
Once again.

No one will break us apart
No, never again
Will we be so bitter, angry
With one another
For the healing, the mending
Now begins.

I See Your Life

January 19, 2021

I See Your Life ~ Photo by Patrice

I see your life in front of me
I see when you fail
And
When you succeed.

Yours is not a life of in-between
You go for all
You leave nothing undone
Nothing not tried.

Yes
That’s the way
The way it all seems.

Riley Passed Away Yesterday

 Riley Passed Away Yesterday ~ Photo by Patrice

Riley passed away
yesterday
his beating heart stopped
his breath ceased to be
only memories
memories that is all we have
you see.

A gentle, kind, wondrous guy
knowing, knowledgeable
a smile on his face
devoted beyond belief
this was Riley
who now has been.

He passed away, passed away
yesterday
rest in peace sweet Riley
you were loved and loved
unconditionally.
~ Patrice  

~ My deepest condolences to his family and all that loved him ~

Yesterday

Breach of the Capital Building ~ Photo by Jason Andrew

When it happened
What did you say
How did you rationalize
All the people breaching
The Capital building
Yesterday?

Nothing, no one
Can make it seem right
in
Today
Tomorrow
or
Yesterday.

Have I Been Helpful

December 31, 2020

 Have I Been Helpful ~ Photo by Patrice

Have I been helpful, have I’ve been the best?

Looking back upon the year
What would I change, what would I let rest?

No time to dwell, no time for remorse

For I must move forward, look ahead
To the year yet to unfold
And
Anticipate it to be full of wonders
Yet to be told.

Once Again, Once More

December 14, 2020

Once Again, Once More ~ Photo by Patrice

I feel the heartache
I feel sadness in my soul
Lost and left
I watch
Those trying to climb out
Of deep depression
Once again, once more.

In tomorrow
Will the sun shine again
Will the streets flow with laughter
Will things
Be ever right
Once again, once more?

A World Most Divine

December 9, 2020

A World Most Divine ~ Photo by Patrice

I seek to find
the world
in a place divine

No hatred
killing
ever creeping slime

Caring places all
on the pedestal of sincere
and right

Full of joy
laughter
cuddling thru the night

This is where I want to be
this is how
all things should turn

A place I’ll seek, I’ll look
I’ll find
in a world most divine.

What Will Be The Answer

December 2, 2020

What Will Be The Answer ~ Photo by Patrice

What will be the answer
what will happen here
will we rejoice with happiness
or
will all wonder disappear?

So many gone
so
many not here

I wonder what the answer is
and
will I be able to accept
what I hear?

We All Sit Here

November 27, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Finches at Feeder ~ Photo by Patrice

We all sit here
Giving not a thought of summer’s hot
Seeds drop here and there
We flutter about with what seems
Not a care
Blissful in winter’s coat
We peck and munch
No time to crack a silly joke.

Santa’s’ coming soon
We hear
But to him we don’t give a care
For we see him
Flying in
Bringing packages
None which
Are for me, you, I or him,

We just sit here
Eating seeds
Life’s good it appears
It seems.

Stories Told

November 26, 2020

Stories Told ~ Illustration by Patrice

Stories told
Are the stories
I tell.

Are they true
Or did I just say words
That make the story
Told well?

Secrets revealed
Bad parts left out
Who knows
How can you tell?

Embellished or truthful
Telling a tale
To remember.

Not because
It’s told correctly
But told well.
~ Patrice
