Puppy Love ~ Photo by Patrice

Holding all in my hands
Feeling your strength and power
At my command.

Journey long, journey far
See the beauty
In a single rising star.

I Have Seen

July 17, 2019

Girl and Dog at the Beach ~ Photo by Patrice

I have seen you are with me
You have been my sole companion
On this trip, this journey.

Never alone, my heart, my soul
Feel your gentle breath
Breathing.

At peace, I am feeling
Your hand in mine leading
Keeping.

Sweet Water Greets

Hummingbird and Feeder ~ Photo by Patrice

Sweet water greets those flying from the south
A long time since said goodbye
Now spring beckons them to our house
Heavy, sweet ruffled feathers
Shook out to contain some heat
Refilled from drinking that that’s sweet.

Tiny and big spring flowers bloom
Holding up their coloured petals
To the sun and to the moon
Sweet nectar deep inside
Lavish feast for who knows where it resides
Hovering there in spring.

Welcome back my little summer friends
Who harrow spring and winter’s end
Let summer too be about to begin
Trust your journey was a easy ride
On currents blowing up
On south’s humid tide.

We’ll share the warm summer’s breeze
You’ll drink sweet water
Til leaves begin to fall
Then on currents you’ll fly away
Drinking sweet water on your way
Back to a warm, south southern day.

Nothing To Say

February 13, 2019

Snow falling on bird feeder ~ Photo by Patrice

Nothing to say, not today
No one comes, no one says
Anything relevant or astute

But then

I look outside and see
The world in all it’s beauty

Snow drifting by
Trees standing proud
Birds flying round

That’s when I realize
There’s nothing more to say
It’s already said

I just need to sit back
Enjoy this spectacular scene
This journey, this ride

I’m lost for words
My heart does sigh.

What Has Happened?

Filtered Sunlight ~ Photo by PatriceWhat has happened?
What will be today?
No one telling’
Just moving, moving on their way.

Couldn’t hear directions
Couldn’t see the way
Couldn’t, couldn’t remember my journey
From that other day.

Must trust the Master
Must believe, believe he’ll guide me
On this that is
My journey’s way.

Travelling Down A No Return Road

October 6, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

First of  Winter Road ~ photo by Patrice

Travelling down a no return road
Going forward pass signs
On this winding, bending road
That tell me what’s ahead
Sometimes full of anticipation
Sometimes only dread.

Going forward
Not looking back
Not using a rearview mirror
To see behind
There’s no use in using that.

On the side of this my road
I’m passing beauty there
Just up to me to behold.

My salvation
May be at the end
Of this my own long road
But the journey to that place
Is up to me to unfold.

You Are On My Journey

June 30, 2017

Patrice's Watercolour Portrait Art

You are on my journey
I’m on your path
The way, it wanders but I can see
There is no more wrath.

Quiet acceptance
Honouring you, honouring me
Moving on into each our destinys.

I am on your path
You are on my road
We pass by smiling full with love
Wondering what life does hold.

Bide your time
I’ll let it be
A wondrous world spreading out
In front of thee.
~ Patrice
