Love Is Never Lost

March 27, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Last used March 22/16

Love is never lost
Only left behind or put in a place
Where it can’t grow.

Sow love seeds so dear
Nurture, care
Watch love grow.

No needy nor neglect
Let love grow in your heart
Don’t let it be, ever lost.

For this you’ll know
As you watch it grow
Love can never, ever be lost.

Some Days

Some days are not OK days.

Some days
Carry the burden
Of yesterday.

Some days
Your heart weeps
Your lips pale.

Some days
It’s best to think of
Another day.

Some days

Holding Still, Holding Fast

March 16, 2020

Holding Still ~ Photo by Patrice

Holding still, holding fast
Waiting, waiting For the terrible, the bad
To pass.

Then the sun will shine, rivers flow
Lives will live, love and give
To all they know.

In It’s Grip

March 13, 2020

We’re ‘In It’s Grip’ but not the weather. Stay safe and well

Ice Storm March 24, 2016 ~ Photo by Patrice

In it’s grip
It’s grip so tight
Hearing ice crack
As limbs fight to stay aloft
In the cruel, bleak night
Sparks shoot into the sky
Wires break, electricity dies.

We wait for help, to understand
A world changed, transformed
Across our little plot of land.
No cell phone works
No lights come on
Except from generators
Throttled up, throttled down.

While chainsaws roar cross the land
We do our best
To clean up, to understand.

The Beginning, The End

Little Racing ~ Photo by Patrice

Can’t see the beginning
Nor the end
Looking for the answer
Not knowing the question.

Sadness Again

Sadness again rears it’s head
As I think of those we’ve lost
Those that are now dead.

Lived lives we did share
Held them close, loved them
But now despair.

Remember

Remember those gone
Not so much with sadness
But rejoicing love forever long.

In The Dusky River Silence Flows

January 31, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Crossing at Nanticoke Creek ~ Photo by Patrice

In the dusky river silence flows
Flowers shimmer along the shoals
No one knows which way it goes
Only those that climb upon the shore
Reach for heaven and nothing more.

The deer, the doe drink their fill
Watching always for threats and still
They move with poise
Knowing others come, living life
Wherever the dusky, silent river flows.
