My Heart Beats Soft

Slowly hearing
My heart beat soft
Taking in the beauty
Beneath, within

No words spoken
No words need said
For all is explained
In a beat so soft

Don’t Tell Me

Don't tell me ~ Illustration by Patrice

Don’t tell me 
I must be the same
same as you, not me.

Don’t tell me
my beating heart
doesn’t count.

Don’t tell me 
my thoughts are just lies.

Don’t tell me 
the tears I weep will never
bring back ones lost.

Don’t tell me this
I ask of you
I plead, I cry.

My Heart

My heart rules, my heart says
Be the best and then leave the rest
Don’t look for bad nor tolerate those
That bring it.

My heart hears all kinds of things
Water crashing on distant shores
A baby bird looking for some more
The calling of a lonesome wolf.

My heart feels the touch of necessity
A coffee warm, so tasty
The gentle caress from one
So loved.

My heart does all these things
While beating life and breathe
Into everything.

Lifting Up My Head

Lifting up my head
my arms, my heart 
seeing all that could be 
seeing nothing 
that is 
empty, lost. 

Maybe tomorrow 
in the early morning light 
all the answers I seek 
will be before me 
holding me
with unprecedented love
oh so very tight.

Thinking and planning 
figuring out 
I’ll do today 

The future’s open 
for my decision 

these feelings  
I’m letting be real 

in my mind 
in my life 


My heart.

My Deepest Sympathies

April 8, 2022

This may have been written after a terrible tragedy in 2018 but my thoughts and prayers are the same now for the Ukrainian people who have suffered so terribly much.

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

My Deepest Sympathies to the families, friends
All who know victims in yesterday’s horrific tragedy
My prayers go out to you
To the ones whose lives were brutally cut short
Those injured

For no reason.

No sane reason.

You are in my thoughts, my words, my prayers and my heart. ❤

My Heart Churns, It Doesn’t Beat

My Heart Churns, It Doesn't Beat  ~ Photo by Patrice

My heart churns, it doesn’t beat 
Thinking of the last time 
The last time
We would meet. 

I didn’t understand
You were sad 
Saying words that changed 

My love, my heart 
All things 
Near and far in this land. 

My heart churns, it doesn’t beat 
I hear it cry 
As all alone
I stand.

When I Feel The Tenderness

When I feel
The tenderness
The soft calling
From my heart
Let me begin to process
All these things
I feel
In my head
In my heart.

My heart

My heart
It tocks

My heart
And then not

My heart

My heart
Brings life
And then

My heart

Angry, Hurt Are The Feelings

June 10, 2020

Angry, hurt are the feelings
Racing thru my head
Why would people be that way
Can’t accept such treatment
In my heart, my head

Seething, feeling angry
But I’ll try to forgive and say
Goodbye to such
That make life an unholy place
No one wants today.
