Hold Me Close

Hold Me Close ~ Photo by Patrice

Hold me close, hold me tight
help me understand
the goings on that happened
have changed
my life.

Let no word be spoken
in anger nor strife
let love begin to heal
the hurt, the pain in this
my only life.

I Watch The Squirrels Fight

I Watch The Squirrels Fight~ Photos by Patrice

I watch the squirrels fight 
edging out one another 
for a place at the feeder 
just another bite. 

there’s a truce 

a bitter fight 

a lone squirrel 
til he feels suffice. 

Birds keep their distance 
stay out of the fight 
they wait their turn 
a time when
all others have had their fill 

All’s quiet 

No more anger 

No more strife.

A Life Full

A Life Full ~ Photo by Patrice

No one lives a life full of anger, strife
do they live in unprecedented peace 
a nondescript life. 

Somewhere between, somewhere 
we live 
our own beautiful
personal life.

Hear the Song Sing

March 11, 2021

Last used March 11/21

Hear the song sing the world round
Feel the words bring together
Children of the fall
No more to see anger, strife
Only beauty
Happiness for all.

Taste The Scent Of Life

Taste The Scent Of Life ~ Photo by Patrice

Taste the scent of life
Seeking to live in a chaotic world
With no stress nor strife
A feat some think unsurmountable
But possible if you taste
That scent that brings
All possibilities to life.

Uplifting A Life

July 24, 2018

Uplifting a life, mine or another
Feeling less anger, strife
With each endeavour.

No one is perfect
No one lives on their own
We are all connected in life
Our world, nothing is alone.

Savour each leaf, honour an insect
Going about it’s business
Unbeknown to the beaver floating
In the creek.

We are all connected
We all need to be uplifting, loving
One another no matter
Our way of life, our beliefs.

Wondering Why Or Did I See

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.

I Dreamed Last Night

November 18, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

I dreamed last night
I don’t know why.

I dreamed last night
Of a time gone by
Of power and might
And travel
At the speed of light.

I dreamed last night
The world is old
We have been here
For years untold.

I dreamed last night
Of losing power and might
In bewilderment and strife.

I dreamed last night
From elsewhere we came
On a flash of light
Brightening the sky
Lighting the night.

This I dreamed last night.

Leaves Of Glory

August 9, 2016


Power White Tropic ~ Photo by Patrice

Leaves of glory, stems of strife
Planning a world, living a life
Holding happy in a tight embrace
Wondering why
How we couldn’t see pleasure
In all things filled with grace.

I Had A Dream Last Night

February 12, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

I had a dream last night
Everything was alright
Making me think
I’ve done something right.

There were no reproaches
No “What if I had done?”
It was nice this recollect.

It made me feel
I could bask in the sun
Relax and display all I had done.

Sometime go back
Look at your life
See the positive
Forget the  strife.

Maybe then you’ll say
“I had a dream last night
And everything is alright.”
