Feeling The Waves Of Magnitude

Waters Crashing - Photo by Patrice Clarkson

Feeling waves of magnitude
Washing thru me
Smacking in the face as it
Crashes over me.

Washing down to the ground
Ebbing back, coming forward
With sounds of thunder
Hitting high above and below me.

Stand, stand my ground
Wait til it dies down
Wth no more crashing
All around, round me.

So Much Could Happen

May 22, 2014

Beautiful Raining ~ Photo by Patrice










So much
Could happen
If I knew the reason
Why I came here
What I need to see
Need to be.

See far meadows
See trees blowing
In the breeze.

Are these
These what I need
Need to see?

Breathe in salt air
As it crashes
Sinks back
To emerald depths
In a deep blue sea.

Will I reach these?
These I need to see
Need to hear
Those I do so need?

Then a sigh
I hear, I hear
My life is right
I’m where I need
Right where I need
To be.

Sadness Fails

Sadness fails 
The wails. 

Monster crawls 
Full of regret 
Finally getting 
What he should

No remorse 
Pity none 
Turn the page 
The rage. 

Sadness can
No more 
Be part of
~ Patrice
