The Snow Comes

November 3, 2021
The Snow Comes ~ Watercolour by Patrice

The snow comes 
It does blow 
Winter’s breath is cold 


In the spring 
Blizzards are forgotten 
With the dawning of warmth 
The beauty 
Growing flowers bring 

Melting into summer 
Hot, humid 
Splashing in warm water 
Watching waves wash
To and fro 

Fall doesn’t matter 
For it seems dying
The main thing 


Really nothing dies 
Only preparing
For a long hibernation 
That winter winds
Soon bring.

I wonder
Why heartbreak has to be.

Hear the Song Sing

March 11, 2021

Last used March 11/21

Hear the song sing the world round
Feel the words bring together
Children of the fall
No more to see anger, strife
Only beauty
Happiness for all.

I Wonder What The Bird Will Sing

I wonder what the bird will sing
What beauty it’s song will bring
To a world desperate
For happy, caring feelings.

Will it create a place so safe
Warm and secure
That no longer feelings
Of anger and hate will permeate.

I wonder what that song will be
What melody, I don’t know
But I’ll listen to every note
That bird sings with such beauty.

The Caged Bird

The Caged Bird ~ Photo by Patrice

The caged bird flies
Deep into brilliant
Blue, blue skies.

The caged bird cries
Songs of lilting love
Her sweet voice sings
Of beauty, freedom
All things.

The caged bird dies
In the midst of bars holding
Holding her in.

No soaring in blue skies
Nor lilting love songs sung
For this was only a dream
Dreamt in
A dark night long.

In The Dusky River Silence Flows

Crossing at Nanticoke Creek ~ Photo by Patrice

In the dusky river silence flows
Flowers shimmer along the shoals
No one knows which way it goes
Only those that climb upon the shore
Reach for heaven and nothing more.

The deer, the doe drink their fill
Watching always for threats and still
They move with poise
Knowing others come, living life
Wherever the dusky, silent river flows.

You Know

You know, I haven’t seen
The beauty, splendour
You talked about, you’ve seen.

Mine has been
A narrow kaleidoscope
Of all the things
Near and close to me.

And you know
You know, that’s enough
Enough for me.

Stingrays Flying

May 3, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Stingrays flying
In a most beautiful place
In awe, inspired by their beauty, their grace.

Leaping from the sea
Are they jumping in fear
Running from danger beneath the waves?

Not known for sure
For they may be just washing mites
From their smooth, dark face.

Stingrays flying
With a particular ballet grace.

There I Am

Rising Fiddle Head ~ Photo by Patrice

There I am in my robe
Watching closely as the earth disrobes
All it’s ugly, nasty things
Rising up in beauty
Filled with summer and with spring.
Winter’s cold, bitter hate
Melted here, no distaste
Only warm, fulfilling beams
Creating more lovely dreams.

Bless the ground I stand upon
Know it gives me faith true and strong
Trusting I’ll be here long after
Spring flowers fade and go
But memories of what has been
Or yet to come
Will hold my own sheltering robe so tight
That I know I will be safe
On earth’s soft ground tonight.
