The Crow Flies

February 21, 2018

Flying Crows ~ image courtesy of Stock Photos

The crow flies over skies
Looking down on a world
Moving forward, no lies.

The crow flies calling
Singing songs only loved ones
Hear, don’t deny.

The crow flies holding close
Treasures found, lost
Seen by no other eyes.

The crow flies.

Memories

February 20, 2018

Patti ~ Illustration by Patrice

Memories are with me
I wish had died

Memories of an existance
I think of and cry

No memories of happiness
Or pleasure survive

Remember memories
That took me out

Of the memories
That just make me sigh

Memories, my memories
That make me cry.

Reach for the sky
Hear the angels cry
Words of magnitude
No one
No one can deny.

That Quiet Voice Talks

February 16, 2018

 

That quiet voice talks
Saying things that give me thought
I listen when that quiet voice talks
Telling me what will happen
Giving choices when that quiet voice begins to talk.

That quiet voice has carried me thru a lot
Showing support, holding me up
I owe that quiet voice oh so much
And will be thankful with all my heart forever
That I have heard that quiet voice talk.

As I Sit Here Facing Life

February 15, 2018

Art Student ~ Photo by Patrice

As I sit here facing life
Must decide my mission
The way I choose
To ride the ups and downs
The about face
The turnarounds
No road is straight
No path without a winding curve
Negotiate
Living life on your own terms.

Did You See, Do You Know?

February 12, 2018

Sharon's Kitty ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Did you see, do you know?
Tell me, tell me if it is so
See only white, no black in sight
Not sure where all the gray did go.

Did you see, do you know
All the stress, heartache where
Where did it go?

Nothing seems the same
It blossoms, it sings a refrain
Tell me, tell me
Did you see, do you know?

A Tear Drop

February 9, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Icicle Plants ~ Photo by Patrice

A tear drop
Runs down my cheek
Taking with it all I cherish
All I seek.

A tear wells up
Clouding my eyes
So they can’t see
The pain devouring me.

A tear drops quietly
On lips unable to cry
Any words that fit
These feelings I dispise.

A tear falls
Down my cheek
Landing on my broken heart
Whose pain won’t go away.

A tear flows down
Taking with it all love
All joy
I hoped I’d found.

I feel
A tear running down.
~ Patrice
