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.

Hummingbird

Hummingbird safe on your journey be
Many pleasures I’ve had watching ye

Time has come and I must let it be
Trust your flight south is a safe journey

In the cool fall light you make yourself ready
Ready for that long flight

Flower to flower do you fly
Sharing pollen, drinking til dry

Maybe next summer I’ll see you again
Humming beneath flowering stems

Drinking sweet nectar alongside some bees
Enjoying the warmth and raising a family

Right now though, all I see is a hummingbird
Getting ready for that phenomenal journey

Wishing you safe, wishing you well
Make it there and please, come back as well.

Note: As I finished writing this poem and rereading it out loud out on our deck, a hummingbird came up so close i could feel the air movement from her wings on the side of my head. She hovered…

Saw My Heart Filled

December 22, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Saw my heart filled
With love
And yours with such cold
Not caring bold disdain.

I wasn’t told
You’d soon depart
Or how I’d be shattered
Blown apart.

It seems it doesn’t matter
For that’s what you expect
When the heart
Is torn, ripped away.

Not sure why
I didn’t cry or follow
You out the door.

Instead I closed my heart
Denying for a time
That I wished
You would have stayed.

But now I wait and hope
And pray
That you’ll come back
Someday, someday.

Fly Away, Fly Away

Fly away, fly away

The day is unfolding
The temperature’s cold
Not smouldering

Fly away, fly away

Come back
Amid spring flowers
For now is the time
Time to fly

Fly away, fly away.

She hovered a few seconds then flew away. I have not seen a hummingbird since. Amazing. I like to think she said goodbye too.
