It’s the meaning that is hard.

We Keep Secrets

April 30, 2021

Jackal ~ Illustration by Patrice for Holt, Rinehart and Winston's reader, 'Flights Near And Far'

We keep secrets
We hold them tight
Never exposed
To see the morning light.

We keep secrets
Silent, secretive
They speak not a word
Sometimes to the grave
They’re carried, never heard.

We keep secrets
Untold secrets
We grasp them tight
Feeling the burden
The weight not light.

I Hear Your Call

April 26, 2021
Last used April 26/21

I hear your call 
Your quiet voice 
sounding throughout
the meadowland. 

I hear your call
resonate 
from place to place 
making all that hear it 
Take a stand. 

I hear your call  
I will be there too 
shoulder to shoulder
following
your command.

I Cry, So I Cry

Connie Yellow Lab ~ Watercolour by Patrice

I feel the heaven and the lie
I know the answer I sigh
Nothing is respectful
Nor is it what I need to know
I cry
So I cry.

I see the heaven
I see the ocean’s die
I am part of the earth
Scotched, bleeding dry
That’s why, that’s when
I cry
So I cry

Hold It Still

Hold It Still ~ Art by Patrice

Hold it still
Let not the movement depict a sound
For in the quiet all will be answered
Salvation will abound.

May the sun shine bright
On the season

Be yours tonight.

With all things glorious
May you feel love

Knowing who I am is hard to acknowledge
When the world tries its damnedest
To change what I am.

Let Me

October 28, 2020

Let Me ~ Illustration by Patrice

Let me hold, let me love those
surrounding my heart

Let me see beauty
in the world static or moving freely

Let me embrace tenderly and with care
all those I see filled with grief or despair

Let me know when to be still
and when to move like a lighting bolt

Let me, let me be in all
this I hold, feel, see and care.

I Paint A Face

October 16, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Face Study ~ Illustration by Patrice

Every morning I paint a face
The one I want to show
Moving thru the day
With beauty and with grace
I apply colours sometimes
In vibrant broad, happy strokes
Other times I can’t help
The lines are blue
They weep, they cry
Hues blended in a colour
That represents the reason why.

 A smile I paint upon that face
Covering the worried lines
The anger
I hope not to find
Each morning I paint colours
To show love, beauty and grace
There on my face
With a special brush that covers all
The tired, frightened lines
I paint
Every morning I paint a face.
~ Patrice
