Happy ~ Illustration by Patrice

Make it happy 
make it be something
you take home 
giving joy and pleasantries. 

No strife or anger 
nor what ever could be 
just happy, happy as can be.

A Place

February 28, 2022
A Place ~ Photo by Patrice

I think the world has come
a place 
of tremendous joy
deep sorrow 

Each step we take
will lead us
a place 
filled with happiness 

This place 
where I want to be 
not hidden 
open, right there 
in front of you 
of me 

Take the steps
you need 
to chose
the path to joy
this place

Tread not down 
the deep,
dark hole 
desperate agony 

This place 
I think I need 
I feel 
I see
I will be.

I’m Not The One

I'm Not The One ~ Photo by Patrice

I’m not the one 
to cry, weep or wail 
for the sky opens 
and all possibilities
will be at my disposal. 

Nothing to hinder me 
not one soul that fights 
is against the role 
that I see coming
for me. 

Laugh, cry
a song of happy 
for it is truly
the road to eternity.

Merry, Happy ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

No you won’t
I’ll be in the depths
Merry, Happy.

You can’t change that
You won’t be a clog
in the
Merry, Happy

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

Horse on a path ~ Photo by Patrice






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
