You Hold Me Close

You Hold Me Close ~ Photo by Patrice

You hold me close 
I seek 
listen to your advice 
the world seems small 
within my grasp 
when I follow 
your quiet, beckoning call. 

I may accomplish 
what needs to be done 
I may succeed 
not unravel 
become undone. 

But that depends upon 
my hearing your wise words 
of 
things happened 
and 
those yet to be heard.

Hear The Bells

Hear The Bells ~ Photo by Patrice

Hear the bells 
ring
their melancholy sound 

Ringing, ringing

Throughout the valley
and
mountains all around 

Sending messages, greetings
and words of sadness
so profound 

Hear the bells 
ringing 

Ringing, ringing

Listen 
listen to their sound.

I Told

I Told ~ Illustration by Patrice

I told you not 

I told 

I told all
that would listen 

Told them how it was 
how it would be 

Now 

I’m telling you all

These precious things 
that have been 

And

Will be.

Hear My Heart Call

Hear my heart call
Hear that quiet voice
Murmur words of love
Filling all with grace.

Hear my heart call
Words to ease the pain
Sounds made from
A sweet refrain.

Hear my heart call
I’m not alone
Forever with me
In all my journeys.

Hear my heart call
Listen, listen to that sound
Hear my heart
Hear my heart call.

Hidden Beneath

Hidden Beneath ~ Photo by Patrice

Hidden beneath 
the sacrifice 

Deep
in the abyss of darkness 
deceit  

Sits
a radiance of hope 
glimmering 
breathing 

No words spoke 
but
listen 

Listen.

Feeling The Heart Pound

Feeling the heart pound
Listen
Listen to that sound.

Life is given, taken away
Only the heart moving
Signifies life breathes
We live
We live today.

I Have Found

Rottie Pups ~ Painting by Patrice

I have found
My life abounds
With great and grandeur things
If I stay my breath
And listen
To all that brings me joy
Love
And lovely earthly things.

Sacrifice

August 7, 2019

Sacrifice is what we do
Sometimes it’s good
Sometimes we should just
Press ‘undo’.

Your heart knows
What’s best to do
What’s best for you.

Listen quietly
Listen loud
It’ll always bring you
Thru.

Hear The World

Hear the world come to it’s end
Listen to mourning flowers
Sway to and fro
And then

Hear the mighty mountains
Roar their anger
Frustration
To all that’ll listen.

Hear the world plead
Cry
For those lost
In the mayhem.

Feeling Down, Don’t Know Why

August 2, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Feeling down, don’t know why
Heart is cold, feeling nothing
Nothing that can be told
Or reasoned why
Angry most of all at what I don’t recall.

Then there is my head
My mind it’s telling stories full of dread
It saids there is no way things will be right
Just give up, curl up and sleep
Til late tonight.

That’s when my heart beats up
Pounding, ‘Don’t give up!’
I can make it right, deep breath
The rest will come
Before falling of sweet night.

Listen
Hear things dear to your heart
Let your mind wander but don’t let it start
The bad, the sad or that which will taint
The faint of heart.
~ Patrice
