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

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

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.

Last Day Of A Time

December 31, 2014

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!

For All I Know

July 7, 2014

For all I know
The world may not be round
It could be full of crowded, crumbly ground
Coming up, breaking down
For all I know.

For all I know
Birds sing to bring joy and happiness
In the chilly, warming spring
For all I know.

For all I know
The squirrel runs, the rabbit plays
Making life an serious, endless game
For all I know.

For all I know
Rain falls to the ground
Spreading life most profound
Asking nothing in return
For all I know.

For all I know
Skin is not skin deep
It lives and breathes
It holds the soul within the body
Until it’s time to go
For all I know. For all I know.

Sky Is Bright

April 7, 2014

Clouds in Sky ~ photo by Patrice

Sky is bright
Clouds float by
Problems few in the bye and bye.

Deep breath bring in
Filled with joy I grin
Nothing can make me cry.

Nothing bad can be
As I relax and see
Bright clouds floating high above me.

Sometimes

Sometimes
Sometimes I cry and don’t know why
Sometimes I laugh full of heartfelt love
Sometimes
Sometimes I know why.

Deep In A Wretched Chasm Of Despair

October 18, 2013

Old House Window ~ photo by Patrice

 

Deep in a wretched chasm of despair
Struggling, struggling to get out
Out of there
Fallen down a well of no repair
Intimidating, dark down there.

Feel the walls
Feel their strength
They’ll help you climb back up
Into a life of freedom
Happiness, no despair.

Don’t dwell way down
Way down there
In that chasm, that well
Filled with hell
Way down there.

Bring yourself up, out
Feel the rays spreading out
Warming, bringing joy
Happiness all about
No pain.

No heartache there about
As we bask in the warmth
Of the sun, knowing
We’ll never fall back down
into that dark chasm
We’ll never, ever fall
ever at all.
~ Patrice
