See The Rings

See the rings
The rings of life
See them circle
Bringing
Embracing life
Different colours
Different lines
Going round
Since
The beginning of time.

Old Lady

Me ~ Photo by Patrice

When I look in the mirror
I see an old lady
Starring at me.

I agonize over
Whether she
Really likes me.

Does she think
Me silly
I can’t see.

But so want to tell her
I’m happy
She got to be an old lady
Just like me!

Another Day Not The Same

March 26, 2021

Zee Painting ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Another day not the same
A cloud, a veil
Lifted
Now I see my terrain.

All is clear
My purpose, my direction
My refrain.

I sing and live
What gives me satisfaction
Gives me
A life to live.

Sunset

March 19, 2021

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Sun goes down
Into the evening sky
Leaving the moon to reflect it’s light
Into the water deep and blue
Turning it golden
Blood red too.

All is quiet in the evening sky
Birds ponder the reason why
As the sun now sinks
Beneath the ocean blue
Refreshing itself in waters deep, dark
Purely quiet too

Wouldn’t It Be Nice

March 12, 2021

Wouldn’t it be nice
If the world laughed
No one cried and in the sea
No fish, no lives
No one
No one died.

Wouldn’t it be nice
If the world turned
Looking at itself
Making no excuses, no lies
Just told the truth
With open-hearted sighs.

Wouldn’t it be nice
If the world alone
Gave all the happiness
Needed to survive
Holding everyone in a grasp
So tender, so alive.

Wouldn’t it be nice, Wouldn’t it be nice
~ Patrice

This Lady

March 5, 2021

This Lady

In another place, another time
This lady
Was my nursery rhyme.

She held me close, she kept me far
She taught me to believe
In my star.

Tomorrow

February 26, 2021

Monty's Last Day ~ Photo by Patrice

He died today
But really
Tomorrow.

We said goodbye
With such
Great sorrow.

No heart could
Break
As much as ours.

We sobbed and sobbed
We knew there would be
No tomorrow.

I Cry, So I Cry

February 19, 2021

Connie Yellow Lab ~ Watercolour by Patrice

I feel the heaven and the lie
I know the answer I sigh
Nothing is respectful
Nor is it what I need to know
I cry
So I cry.

I see the heaven
I see the ocean’s die
I am part of the earth
Scotched, bleeding dry
That’s why, that’s when
I cry
So I cry

Will I Show You Who I Am

February 12, 2021

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Farmhouse Face and Lilacs ~ Photo by Patrice

Will I show you who I am
Will I reveal the face
I know I’ve been?

Will the lines of tomorrow
Be etched
Across my taunt skin?

Will the ones
That happened yesterday
Be still there
In a full or forced grin?

I don’t know the answer
Cause you see
I don’t know who I’ve been.

It’s Time The Master Said

February 5, 2021

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Costa Rica Sunset - Photo by Patrice

It’s time the master said

To live without fear

Without dread

Back to the heart

That rises fine and true

Keeps the soul warm

Surrounding you.

It’s time the master said

Hold your head high

Reach to the sky

Make no one sad

Nor deny

The feelings you feel.

It’s time

It’s time the master said.

~ Patrice
