Sing The Song You Hear

January 6, 2021

Sing The Song You Hear ~ Photo by Patrice

Sing the song you hear in your head
play the tune rhyming there instead
for if you follow all those sweet words
joy will be your reward
love will accompany you wherever you may tread.

The Path Is Varied

December 22, 2020

 The Path Is Varied ~ Photo by Patrice

The path is varied
The trail travelled a lot
My thoughts are hurried
Stepping on this path
I’ve got.

Where will it lead
On what road will I pass
people I know
Those whose friendship
And love will or won’t last.

All questions and answers
I find on this road
Will last, last forever
Forever last.

A World Most Divine

December 9, 2020

A World Most Divine ~ Photo by Patrice

I seek to find
the world
in a place divine

No hatred
ever creeping slime

Caring places all
on the pedestal of sincere
and right

Full of joy
cuddling thru the night

This is where I want to be
this is how
all things should turn

A place I’ll seek, I’ll look
I’ll find
in a world most divine.

Happiness ~ Photo by Patrice

You haven’t seen
the last of heartbreak or the door

Sadness, pain frolic on the path
tripping all attempts at prosperity

They stand there laughing hard
mocking attempts at joy

Take a breath, a deep sigh
all this will pass and once again
you’ll bask in the pleasures
Exquisite Happiness.

Last Day Of A Time

Last day of a time gone thru
When everything’s done
Came back lived by me, by you.

Looking forward to days ahead
Not back at neither sorrow or dread
Only joy, “Remember it” she said.

Bring it forward to this New Year
Live it to the fullest
With much good cheer!

Once More I Write 2013

January 6, 2017

I wrote this 4 years ago but believe it still applies today.
Something to strive for, to accomplish.

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Once more I write 2013. Still strange and scary in some way.

Gone, lost, done is the 2012 year.
Whatever I had wanted to accomplish in that year
I did – or – I didn’t.
It has ended now and I can’t change one bit of it.
Regrets? Yes.
Devastating? Most certainly.
Truly heart-warming? Yes, and much more.

Now I must move on, make this new year the best that I can.
Will I have setbacks and heartache?
Most likely.
But I know I will also have experiences that will take me to the top.
Joy, happiness, success and most of all, love.
This I know because I will make it so.
This is my plan. My resolution for this new year.

Come join me, make it your best year yet. Filled with happiness, love and those wonderful experiences that will carry you thru any dark days that do occur.
And be…

I Can See The Words

November 4, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

I can see the words
They tell me of the time
When hearts were loved
And words all rhymed.

They tell me of the joy
The majesty and triumphant gladness
No casting of badness
No broken bones
Or hearts lost in a world
Filled with madness.

These words they fill the place
With love, beauty, grace
I accept the honour
Bestowed here upon me
Of seeing life with words that
Never conquer
Just for the sake of me.

To Cry Is Human

October 7, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

To cry is human.
It shows you care.

To laugh is human.
It shows you have joy.

To anger is human.
It shows you feel.

To remember is human.
It shows you have been.

To die is human.
It shows you have lived.

Fireflys Dance In The Dark

June 19, 2015

Fireflys dance in the dark
Coyotes cry of times long gone
The joy that darkness hides
Envelopes and keeps me warm.

In a state of wonder
Of  night’s magic
While bats circle and dive
And deer silently pass
Through willows
Into the eery moonlight.

Where the night holds
All that dance far into the night
In the dark
The dark wondrous night.

The Joy Of Reliving Yesterday

April 10, 2015

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Misty ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

The joy of reliving yesterday
Remembering the journey
That was begun.

No regrets to take with us
Only those already spun.

Mystical powers allowing us
To be changing always
Changing none.

We relive the past
And find the peace
That only yesterday
Could give us some.
~ Patrice
