Let The Memories Thrive

August 16, 2017

Karen's Love ~ Watercolour Commission by Patrice

Let the memories thrive
In my head, my heart
Our lives.

Let them not control
The moments now
Nor allow me to live a lie.

But exist with their thoughts
To survive, to strive
To be alive.

Soldiers March

August 15, 2017

Fox Hounds on Parade - Photo by Patrice

Soldiers march
Feet hitting the ground
Sending thunder, fear
That does resound
In a heart filled in ache
Pity and pain
All those things not needed
But
Unfortunately
Part of the refrain.

My Pen

August 11, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

My pen writes what I say
My pen never questions
The words I put down.

Anyone can use
My pen
It doesn’t care but writes
What the fingers share.

My pen
Follows along
Putting down the thoughts
Without it the words would
Be long, long gone.

My pen
Is always there
Then its done
And I get another one
My pen.

Nuclear Happenings

August 10, 2017

Nuclear happenings

Frightening times

Holding our breath

Letting rational minds

Take control

Taking the time

To build a better world

Where happenings

Are not just a crime.

You Don’t Know

August 8, 2017

My Dedicated Running Partner - Photo by Patrice

Of course you don’t know
The sadness, the heartache
I shouldn’t know.

You see the life
That seems to glow.

Sometimes it’s a lie
Sometimes you see I cry
But
Then if course

You don’t know.

Up In The Bustling Sky

Up in the bustling sky
A thousand clouds go flying by
Not one
Not one ever asks why.
