I Think

April 10, 2017

Misty ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

I think
Think of things
Will they come true
Or will they fall into
An abyss so blue?

When I think like this
I may sometimes cringe
Or sometimes laugh
Cause sometimes
I think
Think of you at last.

The Answer Came To Me

January 13, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

The answer came to me
Not in a flash of light
Nor as a wave crashing in the night
That those past lives lived
Come to us in a way
So simple and so straight away
They come in our DNA.

We remember things gone by
And don’t know why
But the reason is
They are in our DNA.

Such as when you think
You’ve been here before
Think again
For you have been
It’s all written in your DNA.

They tell us what we need
What will make us pleased
It’s all there in our DNA.

When you think you’ve been
In this situation once again
It’s most likely true
The blueprints shows us
Thru and thru all that’s written
There in our DNA.

Why we laugh and grin
Why we cry and don’t know why
The answer is in no other place
It’s our saving grace
There within for eons…

I Didn’t Draw, I Wouldn’t Paint

December 9, 2016

Safe and Strong ~ illustration by Patrice

I didn’t draw, I wouldn’t paint
Little love, lots of hate
Time stood still
And seemed to crawl
No one knew
What could or would be all.

Focused on the wrong thing then
Didn’t know what was up
Or around the bend.
Hardship was a constant friend
Little laughter to ease my way
Just disaster each turn I made.

Then they came and held me up
Turned me round to see the light
Not just of love
But a grandeur life
Stroked my soul, made things right
This they did for me one night.

They stood behind, smiled and laughed
No judgement made in this my craft
What took so long?
You might ask
But only those who know
Can answer that.

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.

Gentle Kindness Needed Everywhere

May 30, 2016

3 Rotties ~ Illustration by Patrice

Gentle kindness needed everywhere
Fill the gap with hardy laughs
Store any gain in a open sack.

That way, you’ll be above
All that holds you back.

Laugh, laugh
Embracing and sharing gentle kindness
Feel it here at last.

My Heart Is Sore

March 19, 2016

My friend, Pat Carpenter

My heart is sore
My soul is too
I’ve lost a friend, a loved one
It was you.

So kind, so sweet
So strong, so dear
A gentle heart
I miss you being near.

No more to say
No more to hear
That laugh
That heartfelt cheer.

You had love for yours
Love of life
Blessed to know
Now gone to live with Christ.

We’ll miss you
My friend
Even thou we know you’ll walk near
We’ll see your smile, we’ll feel your cheer.

Rest in peace
My friend Pat
You are so dear.
~ Patrice

Good-bye my friend Pat

Pat Carpenter went to be with the Lord on Thursday, March 17, 2016 with her family by her side.
