What Is?

August 15, 2019

Chickens and Eggs ~ Illustration by Patrice for the Educational Publisher, Ginn and Company

What is the cause? What is the effect?
What does it mean?

For hearts are broken, cities crumble
Crops decay
Lives destroyed.

And
In the midst of this

A sprout pops up, a giggle resonates
Thunder dissipates
Rain clears all filth away.

There is a God
There is a life
We will not disappear.

Sleepless Night

August 1, 2019

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

Sleepless night
Bringing early morning light
Restful peace eluding senses
Throughout the dark
The long, question filled night.

No answers come
Only questions filling, swirling
Round my exhausted mind
No time to sleep, to rest
To dream of better times.

Mighty

Diva and Lise ~ Watercolour & Pencil Art by Patrice

Hold the tender
In your hands
Bask in sunlight
Lighting all the land.

Never believe
Your life’s not worthy
For you are mighty
You are mighty grand.

When The World Is Laughing

July 19, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

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

When the world is laughing
And things are profound
Stand on their steps
Then lightly step down.

No holes will be barred
No one will curse or swear
Just jovial laughing
Not one bit of despair.

Hear the world laughing
Join the chorus of delight
Smile with pleasure
Let heartache take a hike.

So Long Ago

July 16, 2019

2 Friends ~ Watercolour by Patrice

So long ago
I wrote my lines of love for you
So long ago
I lived my life for you
So long ago
I found I didn’t know you
So long ago
I left, left before you left me too
So long ago, so long ago
I loved you.

Pull It All Together

July 4, 2019

Happy Convict ~ illustration by Patrice

Pull It all together
Make it your own
Smile in the face of danger
Never leave a lost soul
All alone.

Words

May 16, 2019

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

I go to write
Listening for the words to form
Pictured in my mind they come
They take their form
On the page they rest
Now said, now wrote.

I thank the presence
That brought them to my mind
Formed the thoughts to convey
And then
Without another word
Quietly slipped away.
