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

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

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

Are Our Thoughts Real

January 29, 2021

Are our thoughts real
Or dreams we lived
In bed at night
Moving thru
An existence surreal
Living as life.

Are the things we see
Real or imagery
Will they move in life
Or just be known
Seen
In the realm of night.

World’s Face

January 22, 2021

I fell off the world’s face
Down into the depths
Of disgrace
No hope, no saving grace
Mired deep
In a unholy place.

Then out of that depth
A saviour came
Putting his arms around
Making me claim my place
In blessed, holy time.

I live
Making no mistakes
Doing no crime
I see the world’s true face
It is such a wondrous place
And is now mine.

Experience life

Experience joy

Watch the tide rise

The heart breathe

A pounding employed

See the birds fly

A mockingbird cry

Feel the wind blow

Above and beneath

The evening sky

No remorse employed

Regrets not even a few

All life is abound

With joyous blessings too.

I Don’t Know

December 18, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Palm Tress in the Sunset ~Photo by Patrice

I don’t know
Nor will I be
Entrenched in anything
Filled with misery
I won’t call
Weep or wail
Sad words
They won’t prevail.

Marching on
Marching forward
Taking positive
Shielding my soul
From all
Nothing more
Than
A coward.

See that light
Feel it fill the sky
Warm my heart
Pour radiance
Throughout the world
Bring glad tears
Healing
To my eyes.

When I Think All Is Lost

December 11, 2020

In loving memory of Wanda, Siegrun and all those that we have lost in this year ❤️❤️❤️

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

When I think all is lost
You come and hold me.

You give me strength
When I feel so weak
You give me hope
A chance to speak
The words that heal me.

My heart’s not broken
It mends, it sees me
Go ahead with life
With you beside me.
~ Patrice  

In memory of Monica – Rest in Heavenly Peace

We All Sit Here

November 27, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Finches at Feeder ~ Photo by Patrice

We all sit here
Giving not a thought of summer’s hot
Seeds drop here and there
We flutter about with what seems
Not a care
Blissful in winter’s coat
We peck and munch
No time to crack a silly joke.

Santa’s’ coming soon
We hear
But to him we don’t give a care
For we see him
Flying in
Bringing packages
None which
Are for me, you, I or him,

We just sit here
Eating seeds
Life’s good it appears
It seems.

I Saw A Hummingbird Today

September 25, 2020

Lily a hummingbird ~ Photo by Patrice

I saw a hummingbird today
Still here, hasn’t flown away
Cold nights must take a bite
Still here
Couldn’t believe my eyes
My ears.

A hummingbird flew
To the feeder so low
Thought of emptying
Sure all hummingbirds gone
Then there she was hovering
Sitting, sipping sweet nectar
In the cold rainy air.

Still here, hasn’t started
On her long flight
Sleeping thru, keeping warm
In the cold fall nights
Drinking sweet water
Filling up to embark
On a long, arduous flight.

Maybe today will be the day
She’ll fly away
Still
I saw a hummingbird
A hummingbird flew to the feeder
Today.

Knowing When

Knowing when to go
When to stop
This is the secret to a life
Not filled with wrought.
