Reset My Life

January 14, 2022

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

My Best Friend ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Reset my life in an instant
Like a roll of the dice
Never knowing where it’s going
Never understanding
Where I’ve just been
I’m here, moving
Going forward
With a smile and a grin.

Pull Me To The Centre

Kaos ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

Pull me to the centre
Stand in front of me
Protect me from whatever comes
Wanting
To inflict harm on me.

The feeder hangs
Quiet and discreet
Waiting for company
To enjoy her treats.

No bad or evil thoughts
Does she convey
Feeding all who happen
To pass her way.

Filled up or near empty
She stands quietly there
Holding something
She lives to share.

My Journey Is Special

December 17, 2021

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Last used July 13/20My journey is special
I am elite
No one else walks, talks
Or looks like me.

My heart skips a beat
When I look in the mirror
For there someone exceptional
Is looking at me.

No one in this world
This story or be
The exact same example
The same human being.

I am special
I am me.

Death Is Overpowering Me

December 10, 2021

Lone Dog – Art by Patrice

Death is overpowering me
Coming, telling me
What to do, where to go
Where to be.

Death is walking beside me
Holding gently, telling me
Souls who go don’t leave
They too, are alongside me.

Death is breathing life inside me
My time will come but not now
Go live a life full of love
Fun and beauty.

This death tells me.

Been

November 26, 2021

Robin's Nest in Snow ~ Photo by Patrice

As I sit here thinking
Of what is to be
And been
My mind wanders to things
That have passed, have been.

There are no memories
As strong as those
That I’ve lived
Been part of
Those that have been.

Future dreams that I’ll be living
Won’t be nothing
Won’t be memories til
They’ve passed thru my living
Going into what has been.

I Sit Here Wishing

November 19, 2021

Ceile at the Beach ~ Photo by Patrice

I sit here wishing
What is
Could not be.

Hoping life
Would be a little gentler
Take pity on me.

Trusting it
Will get better
So all can be happy.

Doesn’t matter what I wish
Cause life is
What it will be.

Remember When The World Was Small

November 12, 2021

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Old Tree - Boyne River ~ Photo by Patrice

Remember when
The world was small
Worries, cares were nothing
To speak of at all.

No crashing down
Of a market
Not really existing
Not at all.

No change in time
It just moved forward
Regardless of everything
Anything at all.

No mushroom cloud
No toxic smoke
No weeping, wailing
All lost hope.

Those were to come
But when
The world was small
None of that mattered
Not at all.

I Feel A Heart Beating

November 5, 2021

Ursa's Birthday Party ~ Photo by Lorra

I feel a heart beating
Here in my own heart
I feel a sadness blue
I know I’ve lost a time
When I lost

Lost you

 Moved on
But every now and then
I think
And that’s when
I find myself

Missing you.
