I

Self Portrait ~ Illustration by Patrice

I can’t be scorned, belittled or debased
I am alive, I have survived
And
I know, know what I need to do.

Another Idea Came To Mind

April 10, 2019

Rottie Pups ~ Painting by Patrice

Another idea came to mind
Popped into my head
My mind
Write it down, ponder it
Express it
Make it become
A reality.

Cause if I let it be
It’ll wander and fade
To a fleeting thought
That once lived
Briefly
In my mind
In my psyche.

Let Me Be The One

April 9, 2019

Spike & Grinch ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

Don’t let me be the one
The one that cries out lies
Never happy with her life
Always, always helping no one.

Don’t let me be the one
Who sees nothing pure or good
Looking every time
To the bad, the sad
Let me be not that one.

Let me be the one
Who sees beauty in everything
Feels life in the wind, earth and sky
A presence who just can’t
And won’t be denied
Let me, let me be that one.

The Early Morning Light

April 8, 2019

Costa Rican Sunrise ~ Photo by Patrice

I wake in the early morning light
Pondering my mission, my delight
No other knows
No other can conceive
The thoughts, the words
The images that come
Only to me.

The early morning light
Can be quiet
Still as the darkness left
Or filled with joy
Sounds singing, bringing forth
The board, bright daylight.

I will lay here
In the midst of my thoughts
The grey dawn getting ever so light
I will rise, knowing
What must be done
Beyond the early morning light.

Sometimes A Memory

April 5, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Henry ~ Pen and Ink Art by Patrice

Sometimes a memory
Sadden, falls down my face
Coming straight from heaven
It holds a special time and place
In my heart forever
Starting there, glistening
Upon my face.

The Sun Shines Bright

April 4, 2019

Costa Rica Sunset - Photo by Patrice

The sun shines bright
The lake’s like glass in the evening light
I take a breath
Savouring all that abounds
I like, I love the world
That is all around.

I Didn’t Make It

April 3, 2019

Falling ~ Photo by Patrice

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I didn’t make it
Cut from the lot
Standing alone
Not knowing what’s up
What’s not.

I know it’ll be over
I’ll pass on
But for now
I’m lonely, fractured
Having trouble to cope
To move on.
~ Patrice
