Stingrays Flying

May 3, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Stingrays flying
In a most beautiful place
In awe, inspired by their beauty, their grace.

Leaping from the sea
Are they jumping in fear
Running from danger beneath the waves?

Not known for sure
For they may be just washing mites
From their smooth, dark face.

Stingrays flying
Leaping
With a particular ballet grace.

Nobody

April 30, 2019

Big Sky ~ Photo by Patrice

Nobody said I had to know
Nobody knew whether
I needed to go
To a place so true
Where the sky is a radiant blue
The grass beneath soft, tender feet
Welcomes all
And holds them safe
Need not go to another place.

Nobody knew
Nor did they say
What would happen in a place
So full of beauty, dignity
And quiet grace
That I know, I’ll live, I’ll see today.

Never Understood

Never understood
How you could walk away
Never turning round
To even say
A kind goodbye

Never understood.

Can’t figure out why
Why it made me cry
Wish with all my heart
I too
Could leave and maybe die

Never understood.

Not now in that awful moment
Moved on and found
The world a lovely place
Full of treasures, beauty, grace
Making all that heartache
Pass away

That, I understand.

But in brief moments
Of some days
I think of you
And still

Can never really understand.

Silly Girl

February 13, 2014

My Shadow ~ Photo by PatriceSilly girl go ahead silly girl
See the disaster just ahead
Silly, silly girl.

Step lightly on your tread
Make no sound not even dread
Silly, silly girl .

Make your way
Silly girl to a place far away
Silly, silly girl.

Escape to that place
Filled with lustre, with grace
Silly, silly girl.

Why stay?
Why stay silly girl?
Silly, silly girl.

Live a life of happiness
Don’t stay just a silly girl
Silly, silly girl. ~ Patrice

Free And Open Space

November 29, 2011

Free and open space.

That’s what I need.

Feel the wind on my face
In a free and open space.
All distractions, lots of action
In this free and open space .

Inhale the air
Feel the coolness in the breeze
In a open, a free and open space
Somewhere that I need.

Charge my senses on a cool and gentle breeze
A open space, a free and open space
Full of grace
A place where I can be.
