Don’t Be Bitter Or Angry

June 22, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Don’t be bitter or angry
Just be happy and gay.

Don’t let them get you down
With their toxic chatter
Even in the darkest night
There always will be a guiding light.

Dance a light step down the pathway
Smile, laugh hysterically with delight
Being happy and gay
If only tonight.
~ Patrice

I Saw

Lazy Summer Days ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

I saw a chipmunk sleeping lazily
Enjoying the day
Quietly.

 

Dog Playing in Water ~ Photo by Patrice

I saw a dog splashing
Playing in the water
All alone.

 

Deer Eating Seeds ~ Photo by Patrice

I saw a deer eat seeds
From my deck
Secretly.

 

Broken Trees ~ Photo by Patrice

I saw a tree fall
Smashing all.

 

Last used may 29/18

I saw ants marching across sand
With a leaf in their mouth
They ran.

 

Connie Yellow Lab ~ Watercolour by Patrice

I saw a dog cry
Mourning the loss of one
Who’d died.

I saw a tree upside down
How could this be?

Quietly.

Plaintively. Flying Stingray ~ Photo by Patrice

I saw a stingray fly
Majestically.

 

Crocodile ~ Photo by Patrice

I saw a crocodile up close
So scary.

I saw life abound
But none, not a soul, no one
Saw me around.

Going Forward, Going Forth

May 28, 2018

Safe and Strong ~ Illustration by Patrice

Going forward, going forth
Into the distance
Going with the force.

No one is left behind
No one is forgotten
All are with us now.

All will be in heaven
None forsaken
None overlooked or not taken.

You Don’t Know What I Know

May 25, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Giraffe ~ Stipple art by Patrice

You don’t know what I know

You don’t feel what I feel

You don’t see what I see

You can’t hear what I hear

Because

You are not and never will be me.

Let The Heart Beat Lightly

May 23, 2018

Eagle ~ Stipple Art by Patrice for B.C. Central Credit Union

Let the heart beat lightly
Let the soul sound loud.

Let its words be heard
Way beyond distant clouds.

Let no man stumble
Nor woman harmed.

Let us all soar
Leading lives that seem charmed.
~ Patrice
