I Saw You Together

February 15, 2019

Yehudi Menuhin ~ Illustration by Patrice

I saw you together connected by an energy
A wave of endless love.

No words needed to convey, to see your love
Bonded together, radiating an energy
Produced by shared love.

Mother, daughter connected forever
By a word, a feeling, a energy
We simply name love.

Pleading With Myself

January 16, 2019

Spike ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

Pleading with myself, I said 

— Be careful —
Step slowly with a definite purpose
Leave no one behind
Deny not the living kind
Express yourself with love and kindness
Saying nothing but the best
Then laugh and let it be
Let it rest.

Never Known Where I Belong

January 11, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Rottie Pups ~ Painting by Patrice

Never known where I belong
Seems to me my whole family
Is just wrong.

Why? Why?

Neither does my love’s
Seem willing to embrace
Me strong.

Why? Why?

I don’t know where I belong
Wherever I go
The same seems to apply.

Why? Why?

Am I from another earth?
Do I belong in a time
Gone by?

Can’t say
Don’t know what’s wrong.

Or should I just understand
The world belongs to those
That accept different as they are
Part of the woven web
Is what we are.

We belong, we belong
I now know where it is I belong.

Sitting Down

Sitting down
To think of something
Intelligently bright and just right
For the discussion I’m having
With myself tonight.

The Fight Is On

December 18, 2018

Lion & Rhino Standoff ~ Pastel Art by Patrice

The fight is on
Foes look eye to eye
No backing down
No clowning round.

Serious words uttered
Marching feet make
The ground shutter.

The sun looks dim
Trying to hide behind
Dark clouds that weep within.

No winners allowed
Only brave hearts move forward
No matter the thoughts
Indecisive or strong.

There is no right
There is no wrong.

Sacrifice Needs Not To Be

December 14, 2018

Golden Eagle ~ Illustration by Patrice

Sacrifice needs not to be
Nor neither give in
No
This is not your destiny.

Abuse no one in your passage
Just
Proud, strong and kind
These are what is needed
In all of human kind.

When I Think Of What I’ve Done

November 28, 2018

Yehudi Menuhin ~ Illustration by Patrice

When I think of what I’ve done
I wonder how this could be?

I’m a mortal, no one special
But still I see this beauty
Coming from within of me.

Then I realized
That God has given me
All that I am
All that I can be.

He does this with us all
The sunset, the whispering tree
Even that nasty insect
Which bit me on my knee.

God is within us all
And I’m glorified to know
He’s forever within of me.
~ Patrice
