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.

May My Soul Find The Secrets

March 17, 2017

Crossing at Nanticoke Creek ~ photo by Patrice

May my soul find the secrets
Hidden deep in my heart
May the pleasure never
Ever, ever depart.

May I find justice
For the things unfairly done
And may the sun shine
On all those I love
Each and everyone.

May I find the strength
To stand up straight
And not waiver
In the thoughts
That can make me see
Greatness
Greatness in all of thee.

Yes
May my soul believe
And see
All that is wondrous
In this secret place
Called me.

There In My Heart

March 4, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

There in my heart
The world comes alive
Feeling the love, strength
Of those I abide.

Dwell deep within
Then rocketing back out
I be the one my heart
Needs me to be about.

Courage To Understand

December 15, 2014

Redheaded Woodpecker on a Snowy Day ~ Photo by Patrice

Courage
to understand.

Strength
to get it done.

Tolerance
to know
not everyone
is the same one.

Kindness
to guide
yourself and
those lost.

Awareness
to know when
and what.

Yourself

That’s all
it costs.
~ Patrice
