Bring your heart to the fight
Let it show strength isn’t all that wins
Wins the fight.

When The World Is Laughing

July 19, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

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

When the world is laughing
And things are profound
Stand on their steps
Then lightly step down.

No holes will be barred
No one will curse or swear
Just jovial laughing
Not one bit of despair.

Hear the world laughing
Join the chorus of delight
Smile with pleasure
Let heartache take a hike.

Snow has fallen
Blanket soft and white
Caressing slumber
In a quiet night.

There Wasn’t Much Time

August 24, 2015

My Best Friend ~ Watercolour by Patrice

There wasn’t much time
There wasn’t a lot
So into the depth I went
I sought.

Not hoping to sacrifice
Those I’d lost
Maybe to recover my love
My lot.

 In this life I’ve been living
Living with no thought
For those I’ve hurt or discarded
Certainly I’ve not.

It’s not the time
To think this
No
No, it’s not.

Rain Falls

August 20, 2015

Blooms in a Storm ~ Photo by Patrice

Rain falls
Pouring down
Wholly drenching parched hard ground
Giving life to what was once brown.

Rain falls
Its pouring down.

Why

August 19, 2015

Chipmunk sunning himself ~ Photo by Patrice

I am here and have not seen why
All the answers evade
And I question why.

Heart and soul both
Don’t know the reason
The reason why.

Deep breath, let it rest
Then I may understand and see the answer
To my why, my question why.

I Had A Friend

August 14, 2015

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

I had a friend
He was six, I was seven
His house or mine
We played dawn to dusk
Swam in the creek
Or rode a pony
Now that was heaven.

I had a friend
He was six, I was seven.
