Don’t Know

Don't Know ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Totally don’t know
What to say
Maybe later, later in the day
All will be clear
I’ll know, know what I should say 
I surely should.

Don’t know 
where I’ve been 
what I’ve done. 

The truth

I believe
my life, my journey 
just begun.

Why Have I

Why Haven't I ~ Photo by Brent

Why Have I
Listened to the wind
Blowing in my ear? 

Why have I
Tried to give back the gentleness
Life has served? 

Why have I
Cried when a sad song
Comes on? 

Why have I 
Not always felt 
That I belonged? 

The answers to these questions 
I don’t know nor can I tell 
For they’re written on a slate
Hidden deep and very well.

You Haven’t Seen

You Haven’t Seen ~ Photo by Patrice

You haven’t seen
nor do you know
the treachery
I can, I will

For what reason
I don’t know.

black heart
is what I know.

I don’t know the answer
The way

Only thing I can do
Is have faith
Move forward
On my path


It is the answer
It is the way.

How has it happened? Where will it go?
– No answers –

 I really don’t know.

When The Sorcerer Comes To Town

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Last used Aug. 20/19

When the sorcerer comes to town

The earth will stop and rotate back around
No friendly comment can expose
A sneaky agenda found beneath the folds
Then and only then will laughter stop a train
Heartache be nothing and nothing to blame

When the sorcerer comes to town

Will you be here or over there?
Will I stand tall or fade to fair?
Will trees bend dropping leaves
Upon the ground
Or reach up scratching heaven’s sky?
Don’t know but I will tell you why

When the sorcerer comes to town.

I Haven’t Got The Answer

May 22, 2019

Wolverine Standoff ~ Watercolour by Patrice

I haven’t got the answer
Don’t know what is the fight
But standing, hands on hips
Feet planted on the ground
Ready to fight and stand
Stand my ground.

Fight for
What I know is good
And what I know is right
Guess that’s my answer
Guess that’s my fight.

Tied In A Knot

March 19, 2019

Long, lingering ties ~ Photo by Patrice

Stomach tied in a knot
Don’t know what is, what’s not
Blessed be the ones
That know their path, their way
No one need show.

Me, is it me alone
Doesn’t know the way
Can’t see the trail
Lost in woods dark and travail
Calling out is of no avail.

Breath in, breath out
Calmly think, think it out
The way is there
The signs will show
Just stop, look, see
Then for sure, you’ll know.

Confusion, Despair

January 25, 2018

Lion & Rhino Standoff ~ Pastel Art by Patrice

Confusion, despair
Don’t know
Which way to twist.

Fighting heartache
Fighting a vacuum
No air.

Survival is the call
Even if it may feel
Your back’s to the wall.

Stand true
Stand and know
There’s only one you.

You are the one
That’ll come thru
Brave, wonderful you.
~ Patrice
