A Robin Wings Her Way South

A robin wings her way south

Buffeting winds

That may drive her off course

Today undaunted

She stays focused on her way

Though wind, rain and snow

She goes to the place

Where the sun glows heat

And where she stays

Til its time once again

To fly north

With all her family and friends.

It Fell From The Sky

April 6, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Icicle Spaceship ~ Photo by Patrice

It fell from the sky
Crashed to the earth
A spaceship from somewhere
Maybe the past
Resting now
In a soft bank of snow.

Who knows who they are?
Where they’ve been
And where they’re yet to go
Now impaled
Stuck in the snow.

Will they go in reverse
Back to the sky
Disappearing from earth
In the dark of the night?
Going forth to the future
In a blaze of hot light?

Then again
They could melt into the snow
Part of the crowd, no one to know
Not born or raised here on earth
But from a place we don’t know.

There are those who’ll say
“It’s an icicle deep in the snow
Fell from the eavestrough
Succumbed to gravity’s pull”.

As for me, I just don’t know.

Snow Soft And White

December 11, 2014

Fields of Snow ~ Photo by Patrice

Snow soft and white
Piling up
Has been all night.

Quietly falling
Covering
Blanketing all that shows.

The sun will rise
Shining bright
On snow covered fields
Blessed
With a insulating layer of white.

It Snows And Snows

March 25, 2014

Snow Banks ~ Photo by Patrice

It snows and snows
And
Then it snows some more.

Cold winter hangs on
No spring song
All I hear is
That wretched snowing song
As it snows and blows
Dumping more crappy snow
On what seems like forever, ever
Evermore. ~ Patrice

Snow Blows A Crisp Cold White

March 12, 2014

Snow blows a crisp cold white
Deafening on this spring morning night
Flying by with a unrepentive no melting cry
Once again covering all going deep down inside.

Some will die in this cold white mess
As snow hungers to hold a grip
Til no life stirs beneath its icy depth
Breeding death, anger and remorse
Snow blows, snow blows
Making life full of needless stress.
~ Patrice
