Love Is Never Lost

March 27, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Last used March 22/16

Love is never lost
Only left behind or put in a place
Where it can’t grow.

Sow love seeds so dear
Nurture, care
Watch love grow.

No needy nor neglect
Let love grow in your heart
Don’t let it be, ever lost.

For this you’ll know
As you watch it grow
Love can never, ever be lost.

Now

Wandering now
Where I’ve never been

Seeking now
Things I’ve won’t begin

Leaving now
Thoughts I shouldn’t have held so tight

Gone now
From the darkest night

Flowing now
On a path not so straight

Holding now
Promise as I go to the light.

In It’s Grip

March 13, 2020

We’re ‘In It’s Grip’ but not the weather. Stay safe and well

In it’s grip
It’s grip so tight
Hearing ice crack
As limbs fight to stay aloft
In the cruel, bleak night
Sparks shoot into the sky
Wires break, electricity dies.

We wait for help, to understand
A world changed, transformed
Across our little plot of land.
No cell phone works
No lights come on
Except from generators
Throttled up, throttled down.

While chainsaws roar cross the land
We do our best
To clean up, to understand.

Kindness, Tenderness

Kindness, tenderness
All of the day
Hold it close
Don’t let it slip away.

Your heart will thank you
Your soul will say

Kindness, tenderness
All of the day
Hold it close
Don’t let it slip away.

Sadness Again

February 28, 2020

Sadness again rears it’s head
As I think of those we’ve lost
Those that are now dead.

Lived lives we did share
Held them close, loved them
But now despair.

Remember

Remember those gone
Not so much with sadness
But rejoicing love forever long.

In The Dusky River Silence Flows

January 31, 2020

Crossing at Nanticoke Creek ~ Photo by Patrice

In the dusky river silence flows
Flowers shimmer along the shoals
No one knows which way it goes
Only those that climb upon the shore
Reach for heaven and nothing more.

The deer, the doe drink their fill
Watching always for threats and still
They move with poise
Knowing others come, living life
Wherever the dusky, silent river flows.

Why?

January 24, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Deer in snow ~ Photo by Patrice

Why have I been brought to this spot?
Why do I live and exist while others have not?

Where will I go?

Who will I see?

Just what will become of me?

The answers not told at least not to me
But then if I knew

What would I do?

With that which is laid out for me?
