May

Farmhouse Face and Lilacs ~ Photo by Patrice

May the trees survive winter
Blossom in the spring
Sending forth life
Giving all, nourishing.

May the sun rise in the morning
Rest asleep at night
To come up the next morning
Bringing warmth, love
And fields of waving buttercup delight.

May the seeds dropped in fall
Spring, rise, growing tall
Spreading roots out for nourishment
Leaves reaching up, growing
Til the fall.

May the wind blow breezes
Both strong or gentle
And then not at all.

May they bring on currents
Moisture, rain to quench
The thirst of everyone
Everyone, everything and all.

May, may we live
May we live us all.

The Early Morning Light

April 8, 2019

Costa Rican Sunrise ~ Photo by Patrice

I wake in the early morning light
Pondering my mission, my delight
No other knows
No other can conceive
The thoughts, the words
The images that come
Only to me.

The early morning light
Can be quiet
Still as the darkness left
Or filled with joy
Sounds singing, bringing forth
The board, bright daylight.

I will lay here
In the midst of my thoughts
The grey dawn getting ever so light
I will rise, knowing
What must be done
Beyond the early morning light.

Costa Rican Tales

Tenderness, loving and caring
Caressing my heart, my life
Tender touch holding me
In warmth
This very night.

Smiling, laughing
Bringing cheer and delight
May you feel love like this
May it hold you safe and secure
All thru your life

My Heart Wonders

August 10, 2018

My heart wonders where you’ve been
Loved you, lost you, can’t begin.

Anger, sadness creeping in
Gentle kindness hidden somewhere then.

Feel the touch of hearts afire
Smouldering eyes, full of desire.

No one knows where it goes
Bumpy, hilly, soft or kind, rocky crevice ours to find.

Now must go where hearts do flow
No troubles, no big or little cares I’ll know.

For you see, you’ll be in my dreams tonight
Full of love, wonder, so much delight.

There with trembling lips we’ll gently kiss
Sharing loving, sweet night bliss.

Don’t Be Bitter Or Angry

June 22, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Don’t be bitter or angry
Just be happy and gay.

Don’t let them get you down
With their toxic chatter
Even in the darkest night
There always will be a guiding light.

Dance a light step down the pathway
Smile, laugh hysterically with delight
Being happy and gay
If only tonight.
~ Patrice

Definitely Not The One

April 22, 2015

Starting Points in Math ~ Illustration by Patrice for the publisher, Ginn & Company

Definitely not the one
I thought I’d write
Maybe then the one
I need to write.

Blessed be the time
That I see I’ve done no crime
Only good
For the sake of mankind.

That’s what I’ll write
Fill my pages full of beauty
Or maybe just delight
Yes this I need, I need to write.
