Knowing All

March 24, 2020

Classic Car ~ Illustration by Patrice for B.C. Central Credit Union

Knowing all
Does not help
To know
The best.

Knowing less
Leaves you open
To seek, question
All the rest.

I Have Not Seen Anything

February 25, 2020

Study of hands and paint brushes ~ Illustration by Patrice for New Chalice Brushes

I have not seen anything
I’ve looked and looked
But nothing, nothing.

My soul cries
Hoping to hear a answer
A answer for all these tears.

My feet do walk the world over
Treading, walking
Walking to find sacred ground

Where I can lie
Lie next to things that happened
Long ago, so profound.

Is this my journey’s life
A life lived seeking answers
Where answers are not to be found.

I hope, hope this is not
What will be
Will come to be around.

So Divine

February 19, 2020

3 Rotties ~ Illustration by Patrice

Seek and you shall find
Heaven, heaven
Oh so divine.

Lose and you are lost
To wander in a quandary
So complex no ending
Will be yours or mine.

But in between
Live a life free and joyful
And the universe will
Come together
To combine, both worlds
So divine.

When You Pretend

February 5, 2020

Mal pups ~ Illustration by Patrice

When you pretend
and nothing happens
are you wrong
or should you extend
the playacting
til
all comes to be
the way you originally
pretended it to be.

Never, Nothing To Regret

January 3, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Border Terriers ~ Illustration by Patrice

Never, nothing to regret
Got only that which
I need to get
A heart cold, burdened down
Opens up and warms
With kindness shown around.

Never, nothing to regret
The world will come
Bringing all I can reach
And need to get
Sharing too
With those less fortunate.

A smile does it all
Believe
With never, nothing to regret
You’ll receive all you want
And need to get.

No Matter What Happens To Me

December 12, 2019

 

Lion and Rhino Standoff ~ Pastel Art by Patrice

No matter what happens to me
the world will turn on into its destiny
flowers will bloom, bees be busy
nothing matters except the going
the moving from what has
to what will be.

Save your breath for breathing
your words to speak adoration
of the heaven that has given all
just for you
asking nothing in return
only wanting to be.

Begging For The Answer

November 26, 2019

Face Study ~ Illustration by Patrice

Begging for the answer
Looking for the right
To make my life a difference
Far, far into the brightest day
The darkest night.

No one will answer
Justify or let it go
Me alone will climb
The altar’s steps
Me alone will be the one
To know.
~ Patrice
