World’s Face

January 22, 2021

Mulmur Hills Farmland ~ Photo by Patrice

I fell off the world’s face
Down into the depths
Of disgrace
No hope, no saving grace
Mired deep
In a unholy place.

Then out of that depth
A saviour came
Putting his arms around
Making me claim my place
In blessed, holy time.

I live
Making no mistakes
Doing no crime
I see the world’s true face
It is such a wondrous place
And is now mine.

Experience Life

Experience life

Experience joy

Watch the tide rise

The heart breathe

A pounding employed

See the birds fly

A mockingbird cry

Feel the wind blow

Above and beneath

The evening sky

No remorse employed

Regrets not even a few

All life is abound

With joyous blessings too.

All I Can Know

All I can know
You have given me.

Nothing is left
Out of my destiny.

No heart pumps
Without a soul,

No mind smiles
Unless they know.

Beginning a new year
A new day
Leaving all that’s bad
In yesterday.

Bringing with me
Only love and joy
Created there
In my yesterday.

I Don’t Know

Palm Tress in the Sunset ~Photo by Patrice

I don’t know
Nor will I be
Entrenched in anything
Filled with misery
I won’t call
Weep or wail
Sad words
They won’t prevail.

Marching on
Marching forward
Taking positive
Shielding my soul
From all
Nothing more
Than
A coward.

See that light
Feel it fill the sky
Warm my heart
Pour radiance
Throughout the world
Bring glad tears
Healing
To my eyes.

When I Think All Is Lost

December 11, 2020

In loving memory of Wanda, Siegrun and all those that we have lost in this year ❤️❤️❤️

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

When I think all is lost
You come and hold me.

You give me strength
When I feel so weak
You give me hope
A chance to speak
The words that heal me.

My heart’s not broken
It mends, it sees me
Go ahead with life
With you beside me.
~ Patrice

I’m Still Here

December 4, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

My Family ~ unknown photographer

I may no longer
Be firmly in your presence
I may be a memory now
Only a thought
A time in your life.

But I’m still here
In that thought
or a glint in your eye
A soft word spoken
To show, to guide.

No longer can I caress
With a hand you can see
But I’m here
Feel my breath as the breeze
Blows gently
That’s me.

Hear my heart
Now silent beat
When you see
A beautiful flower
A tree bend in the wind
Hear me.

No sad words need to be said
Over top of the berth
I now call my bed
For I have gone
To a place full of grace.

Kindness, radiant
Loving light fill this world
I’m now in
Gentle ones share, care
They hold me in.

Please don’t despair
Because I’m no longer there
In a form you’ve known
For I’m here
I’m still here.

We All Sit Here

November 27, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Finches at Feeder ~ Photo by Patrice

We all sit here
Giving not a thought of summer’s hot
Seeds drop here and there
We flutter about with what seems
Not a care
Blissful in winter’s coat
We peck and munch
No time to crack a silly joke.

Santa’s’ coming soon
We hear
But to him we don’t give a care
For we see him
Flying in
Bringing packages
None which
Are for me, you, I or him,

We just sit here
Eating seeds
Life’s good it appears
It seems.

The Moment

November 20, 2020

Costa Rican Raccoon Photo by Brent

Enjoying the moment
Enjoying the scene
All its well
And in some instances
Serene.

Blessed be this moment
This moment I’m in
Only me in this moment
And never to occur
Again.
