Curiously Wondering

Curiously Wondering
What is to be 
What will become of my world 
My life
In the years to come
To be. 

Will I grow old  
Hair turned white 
Or
Just go to sleep 
Forever
One night? 

Questions asked 
Answers
I don’t know
Time is the only one 
That
Really knows.

Heaven Help The World Understand

Heaven help the world
Understand
There is no tomorrow
If we don’t stand and
Let nature be around.

We alone cannot supply
Our food nor make rain
Come pouring down.

Understand
We are but a small dot
In a world
Simply
Spinning round.

What Have I Done

July 13, 2021

What have I done 
and 
where will I be 
in
a year
decade 
century

Will I know 
know
the time to let go 
to let be 

Will these answers
come
in a rush of clarity 
or 
quietly while I sleep 

peacefully.

The Heart Is A Treasure

July 9, 2021

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Saluki ~ Watercolour by Patrice

The heart is a treasure
Hopefully, never to be seen
It guides, beats life in a body
Where she is queen.

The mind may be king
But the heart, she is queen
Without her
The mind can’t do anything.

Giving life, birthing life
Holding life in between
No one lives a life without a heart
Hopefully, never to be seen.

I Haven’t Been

July 8, 2021

I haven’t been 
the one to love

I haven’t been

I haven’t been 
the one to cherish

I haven’t been

I haven’t been
no matter what you say 

I know

I know the truth 
I know 

I haven’t been.

Innocent Children Lying Dead

A day to reflect 
a day to stay focused 
on tomorrow 
making it better than yesterday. 

The hurts, wrongs and harms
done in the name
of a God 
that would not condone 
such tragedies in anyway. 

Fill your heart with love
fill your soul with remorse 
for the small
innocent children lying dead
in shallow, unmarked graves 
undiscovered
til just yesterday. 

They had done no wrong 
snatched
from their mothers and fathers
one terrible
fateful day. 

Send support
for survivors that made it thru 
endured torture, harm unmitigated pain 
for no reason
not ever, not never
in those horrible years
terrible days.

I’ve Heard The Sound

I've Heard The Sound ~ Photo by Patrice

I’ve heard the sound of the earth
Rocking too and fro 
Even thou she doesn’t make a sound 
I know the earth is there 
I know her heart spins
Round and round 
But still
She quietly stands
Stands still for me 
I am
On solid ground.

The Best I’ve Ever Been

June 3, 2021
The Best I’ve Ever Been ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

 

I know I haven’t been 
The best you’ve ever seen 
I’ve tried, I tried 
But after all the manoeuvring 
It hasn’t happened 
It hasn’t come to be. 

I haven’t seen my way 
And settled with 
The acknowledgement that
I’ll be the best of me 
The best I can 
The best I’ve ever been
Today.

Nothing To Say

June 1, 2021
Trout Drawing ~ Illustration by Patrice

Nothing to say not in any way 
All has been said
Then left to be 
Easy to live with or diving down 
Into pure agony. 

Nothing can stop all these
Bad thoughts 
But you can replace them
With something pleasant 
Making your face into a huge smiley.

No, nothing to say
Not this morning, this evening
Not today.

I Know You’re There

I Know You're There ~ Photo by Patrice

I know you’re there 
I’ve felt your sweet breath 
upon my face, my hair 
your soft voice sweetly calls 
from somewhere, somewhere
but I don’t know where 
your steps direct my feet 
they lead me in a way so discreet 
I can’t falter nor wander 
you guide me, guide me there 
I feel no despair 
you are with me where’er I go 
I know, I know you’re there.
