Clouds Thunder

Lilacs in a Storm ~ Photo by Patrice

Clouds thunder
Rain parts cloudy sky
No sunlight hits a silent ground.

Lighting strikes fear in a heart
Brought to a sudden
Wakening start.

Rain drops on a tin roof
A pinging ring in the midst of a world
Filled with all this thundering sound.

Life and breathe are brought
Given to a earth parched
Thirsting for that thundering, lighting
Rain sound.

Silent message
Quiet and discreet
Voicing everything
I just couldn’t speak.

Tremendous Help You Are To Me

June 30, 2020

My Mom ~ Photo by Patrice

Tremendous help you are to me
Tremendous, unconditionally
What I say, Where I go
You are there, backing me.

When the day begins, night ends
There in front of me
At my side, my back protecting
You are a tremendous help
Unconditionally.

Another Month Starts

Another month starts today
Another path lies
Focused in some way
On the dream manifesting itself
In all waking, living things.

Gently, quietly step upon the step
That brings all you want, all you need
To the self that sings
Nature’s beauty
Daring, just to dream.

The sky is beauty
Flowers be
The most beautiful
Anyone could ever see.

Summers’ come
It’s weaving a warm, soft web
Enveloping all spring’s brought
From winter’s dread.

Can’t Help But See

Can’t help but see
The world living, unfolding
As it should be.

Can’t help but feel
The soft and gentle caring
Beneath my feet.

Can’t help but hear
A song of love
Filling each of my ears.

Can’t help but live
A life full of harmony
Can’t help but see all this, around me.

A Million Miles Away

May 20, 2020

Sun Flower ~ Photo by Patrice

A million miles away
The sun shines
No matter
The time of day.

My heart must bring
That sun from far
To my day, my walk
My way.

Holding close all
That’s good
All I need to make
It thru today.

From a million miles away
The sun shines
Shines on me
As I’m on my way.

May 24th Celebration Has Gone

May 24th Celebration in Jarvis ~ Photo by Patrice

May 24th celebration has gone
used to be festivities
All day long.

Nothing, no more celebrating
Can’t understand
How could all this pass?

Used to be dancing, parties, sing-along
Fireworks and baseball
May 24th celebration, all day long.

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.

I Wonder What The Bird Will Sing

April 29, 2020

Art Student ~ Photo by Patrice

I wonder what the bird will sing
What beauty it’s song will bring
To a world desperate
For happy, caring feelings.

Will it create a place so safe
Warm and secure
That no longer feelings
Of anger and hate will permeate.

I wonder what that song will be
What melody, I don’t know
But I’ll listen to every note
That bird sings with such beauty.
