Hummingbird

September 27, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Last used Sept. 22/15

Hummingbird safe on your journey be
Many pleasures I’ve had watching ye

Time has come and I must let it be
Trust your flight south is a safe journey

In the cool fall light you make yourself ready
Ready for that long flight

Flower to flower do you fly
Sharing pollen, drinking til dry

Maybe next summer I’ll see you again
Humming beneath flowering stems

Drinking sweet nectar alongside some bees
Enjoying the warmth and raising a family

Right now though, all I see is a hummingbird
Getting ready for that phenomenal journey

Wishing you safe, wishing you well
Make it there and please, come back as well.

Note: As I finished writing this poem and rereading it out loud out on our deck, a hummingbird came up so close i could feel the air movement from her wings on the side of my head. She hovered…

Hearing The World Turn

Hearing the world turn
Is
A wondrous thing.

The magic of the morning
The breath of spring
Calling forth summer and all that it brings.

Fall’s bounty feeding
Getting ready for the cold of winter
Snowflakes hiding everything.

My breath goes in and out
Taking in all these things
That are about.

When Things Calm Down

When things calm down and all is quiet
The heart stirs with memories, feelings disquiet.

Hard to conceive what has happened
Hard to believe it is now reality.

Chest heaves, tears fall crying
In a crushing rain no one can believe.

Neither can anyone console
Or take this burdened load from you or me.

Yes, when all things are calm and the world seems quiet
The head, the heart are left feeling painfully disquiet.

Deep In The Rest

June 28, 2019

Deep in the rest of sleep tonight
My soul does dream so vividly
Life is full, time is dear
Honoured by those held so near.

I awaken rested, never knowing
Time has passed
Troubles solved and circumstance
Seems not to be the threat I feared
So horribly.

No one drew or threw a veil
Upon my sight
Just goodness does
And will prevail.

I slumber now in perfect rest
No concern, no distress
Awakening to light cascading down
Upon my life where goodness
Does and will abound.

There I Am

April 19, 2019

Rising Fiddle Head ~ Photo by Patrice

There I am in my robe
Watching closely as the earth disrobes
All it’s ugly, nasty things
Rising up in beauty
Filled with summer and with spring.
Winter’s cold, bitter hate
Melted here, no distaste
Only warm, fulfilling beams
Creating more lovely dreams.

Bless the ground I stand upon
Know it gives me faith true and strong
Trusting I’ll be here long after
Spring flowers fade and go
But memories of what has been
Or yet to come
Will hold my own sheltering robe so tight
That I know I will be safe
On earth’s soft ground tonight.

House Of Cards

House of cards
Comes crashing down
Never built on solid ground
No ace, jack nor king
Only a queen in mourning.

Focus On Falling Snow

February 22, 2019

Snowy Deer ~ Photo by Patrice

Focus on falling snow
Dropping, falling, drifting
Blow.

Filling cracks in heart and soul
Holding softly footsteps
Traced in falling white.

Moving with
No cares in sight
Blanketed in soften, drifting white.
