Nothing Really Happens Til

February 3, 2023

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Rising Fiddle Head ~ Photo by Patrice

Nothing really happens
Til something moves
Takes control.

Nothing really happens
In the morning bright
Til eyes open
Letting in streaming sunlight.

Nothing really happens
Til words are spoken
From a mouth open
Speaking things we need to know.

Nothing really happens
Til feet move
Heeding the mind’s signals
And control.

Nothing really happens
Til we let Mother Nature
Let nature have the reins
And we let go.

No More

January 31, 2023
No More ~ Photo by Patrice

No more
To
Tell

No more
To
See

Moving on
Not
Looking back

Nothing there

Nothing
Of
Quality.

Our Best

January 27, 2023

Amaryllis ~ Photo by Patrice

We look to do our best
To see the best
And live a life of no unrest.

Sometimes it works
Sometimes we fail.

But in the end
we live, we love
We follow our destiny’s trail.

Time Bends

January 25, 2023
The Hours Drip Away ~ Photo by Patrice

Time bends

Hours drip away 
Different 
In all places of the world 
The universe 
Galaxies swirling. 

Time bends

Somewhere it’s tomorrow 
Today 
Is gone 
It’s already been. 

Then there’s 
Yesterday 
Can we go back 
See it happen, happen 
All over again? 

Time bends

I Don’t Know, I Haven’t Seen

January 24, 2023
I Don't Know, I Haven't Seen ~ Photo by Patrice

I don’t know 
I haven’t seen
the truth 
The answer to all
That seems so mysterious
But
Serene. 

Let me look some more
Let me see
The beauty nestled
In this day
Unfolding gently
Beautiful and pristine.

My Friend

January 23, 2023
My Friend ~ Photo by Patrice

Do I know you 
Have you been 

My friend? 

Will I know that in times of trouble
I can count on you
Once more, once again? 

Questions, answers
I say, ask  
Over and over again 

Still 
I don’t know for certain
You really are 

My friend.

Thunderous Clouds

January 19, 2023
Last used Jan. 19/23

Clouds are heavy overhead 
Thunder strikes with ominous dread
Rain sweeps down
From
Dark, black clouds.
~
Will the storm come
Wreck havoc

Before it disappears?
~
No one
But
God knows
Have no fear.

Snow Falls Silently Down

January 13, 2023

Winter Snow ~ Photo by Patrice

Snow falls silently down
Snowploughs roar
Spreading sand, salt
Across roads far around.

Oblivious birds sit in trees
Hunkered down
A fox yips, a crow cries
All says
A winter’s day is on the rise.

No One Knows

January 11, 2023
No One Knows ~ Photo by Patrice

No one knows 
Nor
Do they tell
Why the world turns
And
Doesn’t fall
Into hell.

Maybe it has
Maybe
There we are
No one knows
Nor
Do they tell.

Standing Still And Breathing Deep

January 9, 2023
Standing Still And Breathing Deep ~ Photo by Patrice

Standing still
And
Breathing deep 
The world comes into focus. 

Then I know
Know what I need to leave
And
What I need to keep.
