Good Beginnings

Good beginnings
Caress the past
Moving forward
Beyond the last
Making new ones
As they come to be.

No one knows
Just what’s in store
Only that the way
Is open and
Pulls us through
Here to this day.

Showing
Another time
Beginning now today
But always, always
Starting yesterday.

Last Day Of A Time

Last day of a time gone thru
When everything’s done
Came back lived by me, by you.

Looking forward to days ahead
Not back at neither sorrow or dread
Only joy, “Remember it” she said.

Bring it forward to this New Year
Live it to the fullest
With much good cheer!

Golden Leaves Swaying

Golden Fall ~ Photo by Patrice

Golden leaves swaying
On a November breeze
Floating, cascading down
Landing on soon to be
Frozen, winter ground.

Woods are silent, hushed, listening
To the still quiet as a hunter lurks
Waiting to kill in the midst
Of golden leaves falling, raining down
Upon barren, dying ground.

Feeling The Waves Of Magnitude

October 15, 2018

Waters Crashing - Photo by Patrice Clarkson

Feeling waves of magnitude
Washing thru me
Smacking in the face as it
Crashes over me.

Washing down to the ground
Ebbing back, coming forward
With sounds of thunder
Hitting high above and below me.

Stand, stand my ground
Wait til it dies down
Wth no more crashing
All around, round me.

Fall Has Come

Fall Rain ~ Photo by Patrice

Fall has come, its presence felt
The lane is crowded with leaves that fell
Geese fly through coloured hills
Their honks ringing against clear, blue skys.

While squirrels cache seeds
Nuts and whatever they can fill
Holes hidden hopefully to remember
In the cold winter still.

Sorrow, anticipation crowd my mind
At the last of summer as it falls to winter
In midst of such beauty that sends
Chills to the soul and thrills the mind.

Lighting Strikes A Hummingbird

Dark Night Tree ~ Photo by Patrice

Lighting strikes a hummingbird
As she sits, sleeping in the night.

Thunder crashes
Wind wails
Rain weeps.

No right is done
When tragedy screams thru
A dark, unforgiving night.
