Making Way For Another Day

November 12, 2019

After Snow Storm Quiet ~ Photo by Patrice

Making way for another day
Forcing nothing
Living by the rules
Set in my head the other day.

Merry, happy I’ll trudge
Thru the falling snow
Breathing in, letting out
All thoughts gone wrong, bad
In yesterday’s head.

The World Is Round

October 1, 2019

Wood Smiles and Sad ~ Photo by Patrice

I have found
The world is round
What is done comes back
Comes back around
So don’t make it bad
Don’t make anyone sad
Cause back
It comes back around.

Make it happy
Carefree, filled with joy
Then when it comes back
Comes back around
Your soul will know
The world is round.

Heading Down The Road

Heading down the road
Going the way
My small voice saids

She saids,

‘Come be blessed and happy
Come travel on the road
The path you’re meant to be
Enjoy every moment
Let not anything just be
Savour, inhale
All the road has to offer
On this great, lovely journey.’

Come along, join me.

Have You Seen Optimistic?

Jackal ~ Illustration by Patrice for Holt, Rinehart and Winston's reader, 'Flights Near And Far'

Have you seen optimistic?
Where, oh where could she be?
At one time she was here
Right beside of me.

She kept me company
Laughed and made me see
The happy, caring way
Just what I need.

But yesterday
She left, she left me
Have you seen optimistic?
If you do, please tell me.

I Come To Be

August 2, 2018

Lazy Summer Days ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

In the morning I come to be
In my joyous place laughing, happy
All as it should be.

As a mourning dove gives it’s plaintive call
Cars pass knowing nothing of my life
Not at all.

Birds sing, squirrels jump from branch to branch
On the hunt for the perfect breakfast,
Dinner, lunch.

Flowers bloom, waving petals in a quiet breeze
While a fly buzzes, irritating for sure
But still a life that lives, that breathes.

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

I Can say.

In my being
Knowing the reason
It seems blessed, full of love.

Cause all things
Come from above.

Anger Frustration, Darkness And Fear

July 22, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Anger frustration
Darkness and fear.

They dwell here.

A moment ago
I drove them out
Back they came
Right back here.

Freedom to lose them
Freedom to be happy
Without anger, frustration
Darkness and fear.

No one to blame
No one to fear.

Muster the courage
Step out of the darkness
Step there to the place
We hold dear.

No anger, frustration
Darkness or fear.

My Heart Aches

September 18, 2015

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

My heart aches
For the girl I use to be
Finding it hard accepting
This woman I am to be.

I was innocent then
Accepting and carefree.
What happened
To that girl?

Where could she be?
Life took a toll
Leaving her as you see.

Must accept this woman
Must be pleased
And certainly see
a beautiful person too
Just not as carefree.

Happy yes, more so now
Than ever could be.
So love this woman
Because she is me.
~ Patrice
