My Heart Does Cringe

November 9, 2022
My Heart Does Cringe ~ Art by Patrice

My heart does cringe 
My soul weeps.

Happenings in the world
Are full of sadness, anger
Misery so deep.

How
Did we get here? 

When
Can we leave?

Questions – Answers
No one knows
No one speaks.

You’re Not The One

November 8, 2022
You're Not The One ~ Photo by Patrice

I know you’re not the one 
I’m supposed to be. 

I’m the one I need to be 
in my heart, my head. 

All things I do 
that’s who I’m suppose to be. 

You’re but someone 
who accompanies me.

The Breath Breathe

Hearing the breath breathe
Is heartening to us 
Cause tomorrow may bring
Happiness or sadness 
Or something 
We haven’t seen.

But today we’ll hear
The breath breathe
And know
That just for today
We’re living, breathing
We’re okay.

Some Days

Some days are sad
In remembering the past
The heartache and anguish
Seems to last and last.

You know years have passed
You know all have moved on
Yet still some days are hard
The sadness seems to go
On and on.

Treasures

Treasures happen
treasures can be within sight
or
sought, seeking far, far
into the reaches
of
the still, quiet night

No man speaks
but
all know his thoughts
that treasures keep him loved
from morning, to noon
then far, far into
the still, quiet night.

Wrath Of What Has Been

November 2, 2022
Wrath Of What Has Been ~ Photo by Patrice

I’ve experienced the very wrath
Of what has come, has been
No remorse felt or regrets that last 
No happiness seen. 

Let me be away from this
Be and feel pure joy, pure bliss 
And that happiness 
That’s been evading me.

This I ask, beg and plead
Knowing it’s up to me to be
In that embrace, that love 
I want to feel and see.

When I Hear

When I Hear ~ Photo by Patrice

When I hear the voices call 
My heart bumps 
skips a beat.

When I hear that melody
I know 
know I’m not alone
nor to be.

When I hear the voices sing
sing of love, compassion 
everything.

The Hearts

October 28, 2022

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

The hearts of men and every woman
Beat, pound a melodic rhythm
Breath taken in, breathing out
Lungs expand and eyes look about
Fingers touch a soft, gentle ground
As feet run full speed all around.

All this done with not a thought
Of how to do it or where it starts
For life begins and only stops
When the end has come
And the heart, it stops.
~ Patrice

Suddenly

Suddenly ~ Photo by Patrice

Suddenly,
in the heart of things
the world turns and it brings
glories so magnificent
it’s undeniably the world’s
best of things.

Suddenly,
spinning round once again
you see new fantastic things
then and there, deciding 
it’s best to let the world
be turning, turning into more
stupendous things.

No One Else

No One Else ~ Illustration by Patrice

No one else 
no one will be just the same
cause as you may know
or can see
we’re all unique
never not the same
not the same as
you and me.
