Peaceful Scene

October 14, 2020

Peaceful Scene ~ Photo by Patrice

Waves of thunder cross the sky
Rain falls obliterating any peaceful scene
My heart wails in anguish
Horrified by what
I’ve seen.

May tomorrow ride the wave
Of sunlight streaming
Streaming across a quiet
Peaceful scene.

And I will rest in peace
Knowing life goes on
No matter what I feel
I’ve seen.

No Matter What

August 17, 2020

No Matter What - Art by Patrice

No matter what

The earth turns
bringing light and warmth
on a summer day.

No matter what

Filling oceans up
creating life in the water
dirt and the sky.

No matter what

She moves
speaking words of love
heard by those quiet enough

No matter what.

If I Could Speak And Say To My Younger Self

May 1, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

My Younger Self

If I could speak and say
To my younger self
The things I know today
I wouldn’t listen to myself
Berate and think I’m not worthy
Of love in anyway.

I’d say beauty doesn’t last
It fades away to something beautiful
Just in another way
What’s important now won’t be
In tomorrow’s day, so let it go
Let it fade away.

I’d tell her she’ll grow old
Live and laugh no matter what
Tragedy may come her way
That all she has to do is just love
Love and live each and everyday.

That’s what I would tell my younger self
If I could speak to her in
Yesterday.

If I Could Speak And Say To My Younger Self

My Younger Self

In tomorrow’s day, so let it go
Let it fade away.

I’d tell her she’ll grow old
Live and laugh no matter what

That all she has to do is just love
Love and live each and everyday.

That’s what I would tell my younger self
If I could speak to her in
Yesterday.
