Feeling The Weight

December 18, 2019

Feeling the weight holding me down
Struggling, fighting against a strength
That all I can say, astounds.

Maybe tomorrow the way will be light
Maybe then I won’t be feeling
This heavy weight I’m feeling tonight.

Wondering Why Or Did I See

June 15, 2018

Wondering why or did I see
How the heart mends
Without any seams.

Tragedy, chaos and most likely strife
Rip holes in my being
Then along comes kindness
Dipped in strength
Changing everything.

A smile, a laugh, a gentle caress
Hold me together
Thru anything.

I’m not wondering
I know, I see
With love my heart mends
Without any seams.

Husk Falls

Seeds, Tree and Squirrel ~ Photo by Patrice

Husk falls, dropping to the ground
Seeds of wonder spattered all around.

Dead or dying not necessarily their fate
Taking food, taking strength
From the earth, the ground on which
They were spat, they grow and create.

Slowly, quietly up to mighty trees
Strong and wondrous they unfold
Dropping seeds that too
Like magic wonder, grow.

Please Let Me

September 6, 2017

Vince's Border Terrier ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

Please let me

Be friendly
Not bitter nor condescending
Let me see beauty, dignity
In the world that surrounds me.

Please let me

Give help
To those that need
Strength to ones
Who are weakened.

Please let me

Show vision
To those whose minds
Are imprisoned.

Please let me.

Sadly, Secret Murky Tiled

June 16, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Sadly, secret murky tiled
No hope, destitute merciless bile
Twist, turn fight and bat
Get to where the strength is at

Mess, mired deep down in
No way open can’t begin
Mutter, sputter rage and fume
Makes no difference

The rose still blooms.

Rain

May 11, 2017

Thunder Clouds ~ Photo by Patrice

Clouds thunder
Making sounds that whack
Fearful people shiver
Their hearts pierced
By a cold, wet spear
Dark black clouds blow
Souls washed away
In a heartless, driving rain.

Find shelter, find strength
Hold out your hand
Feel instead a soft gentle rain
No sounds course thru
Clouds white, fluffy
Surrounded in blue
Only a spatter of rain.

You are alright
You’ll grow
With this soft, nurturing rain
The sun, it’ll shine
Shine once again
After the rain.

Can I Fix It?

April 21, 2017

Can I fix it?
Will I be the one
That’s the hero
In a situation
That should not be?

Crushed and miserable
Full of doubt
Must move forward
Cast it out.

Smile with gratitude
Mean it
See it radiate
All about.

My strength and smile
Will cast misery out.
Can I fix it?
I have no doubt.
