We Keep Secrets

April 25, 2017

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.

Your Heart

April 12, 2017

Willow ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

Celebrate your life
Celebrate yourself
See the world in your heart.

Tread upon the lifeline
Follow it to happiness
Let it reside in your heart.

Take nothing for granted
All of it has helped you
Find what lives in your heart.

Start celebrating your life
Celebrating
All that’s in your heart.

I Think

April 10, 2017

Misty ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

I think
Think of things
Will they come true
Or will they fall into
An abyss so blue?

When I think like this
I may sometimes cringe
Or sometimes laugh
Cause sometimes
I think
Think of you at last.

Holding still and listening quietly
I hear my heart say everything.

Another Day Not The Same

March 29, 2017

Zee Painting ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Another day not the same
A cloud, a veil
Lifted
Now I see my terrain.

All is clear
My purpose, my direction
My refrain.

I sing and live
What gives me satisfaction
Gives me
A life to live.

Another Mouse

March 24, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Convict Cartoon ~ illustration by Patrice

Another mouse
Inside the house
Caught by just his tail
Tried to run
That son of a gun
But the clatter left a trail.

Caught like a rat
In a trap
How could I let him go?
That I did
Outside in the cold blue snow
I did, I really did let him go.

If he lives is up to him
For it’s not
For me to know
I just let a mouse
That was in the house
I just let him go.

So if you see a mouse
With tape upon his tail
He is the one I did let go!

Haven’t Heard

March 21, 2017

Yehudi Menuhin ~ Illustration by Patrice

Haven’t heard
The end
Haven’t heard
The start
Waiting in between

Waiting

To hear my heart.
