No One’s Listening

July 8, 2020

3 Faces of Foxy - Watercolour Painting by Patrice

No one’s listening
To my heart beat
Nor saying
Any encouraging ways.

When I speak
The echo goes far, far away
Even I can’t hear
It come back my way.

No one’s listening
To anything, anything
I speak or say.

Remember When

June 5, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Safe and Strong ~ Illustration by Patrice for Ginn and Company's math book, 'Starting Points in Mathematics'

Remember when
Life was soft
And
Then the world burst
Spewing anger.

That is when
I fell from my heart
Landing in a den of angry giants
Eating,
Crunching hapless wrens
Cried in anger, feared for death.

 That is when
I saw the world
Issue out some justice
My tears were dried, my heart soothed
And
I remembered when.

Seldom do you see
Different species fight
Like you, like me
Seldom
Seldom do you see.

My Heart Grows Old

Saluki ~ Watercolour by PatriceMy heart grows old
With stories that are told
Snuggled in a soul
That will never, ever
Grow old.

Feeling Mixed

May 27, 2020

Parker2 Painting ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Feeling mixed
And
Feeling strange
Grapple with the concept
Never knowing how
The game is played.

Truthfully told
But not explained
I listen in awe of those
Who have been
And
Those who came

I Have Been There

May 19, 2020

Sad Golden ~ Illustration by Patrice

I have been there
Seen everything
Held my breath
And
Tried not to scream.

Sadness mounts
Envelops me
Reason why
Evades
Not only me.

Maybe tomorrow
All will be ok
Til then
I’ll live thru
This troubling day.

I Will Come With You

Diva and Lise Illustration ~ Illustration by Patrice

I will come with you
I will walk at your side
together
we will face the heartache
and
come out the other side.

Coffee Taste Lingers

March 31, 2020

 

Coffee taste
Lingers
The aroma whirls
Round my senses
No
Other feeling
Neither
Happiness
Nor
Dread
Can accommodate
Like this
In
My sleepy
Morning head.

Knowing All

March 24, 2020

Classic Car ~ Illustration by Patrice for B.C. Central Credit Union

Knowing all
Does not help
To know
The best.

Knowing less
Leaves you open
To seek, question
All the rest.

Now

March 20, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Great Danes from Purina's Hall of Fame ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Wandering now
Where I’ve never been

Seeking now
Things I’ve won’t begin

Leaving now
Thoughts I shouldn’t have held so tight

Gone now
From the darkest night

Flowing now
On a path not so straight

Holding now
Promise as I go to the light.
