I Don’t Know The Answer

November 30, 2021
I Don't Know The Answer ~ Photo by Brent

I don’t know the answer 
nor the question 
I was asked 

I’m living with 
what has happened 
what has come to pass 

Will it still be here tomorrow 
will it be all I need
I need to ask 

No answers come forth 
because the answers 
are hidden 

Hidden deep 
deep within
the questions asked.

Heaven Help The World Understand

Heaven help the world
Understand
There is no tomorrow
If we don’t stand and
Let nature be around.

We alone cannot supply
Our food nor make rain
Come pouring down.

Understand
We are but a small dot
In a world
Simply
Spinning round.

Strange things have happened 
Strange things have been 

Please Lord 
Let me understand 
Understand
All these things.

Poets

April 22, 2021
Poets ~ Photo by Patrice

Heard them say 
their words with feeling 
Heard the tone
and
plaintive call. 

Knew my words
compared to theirs
were small  
overall. 

Understand
they have the stature 
believe
their words say
it all 

But
I look within myself 
and know
I still have to write
those words given me 
I have to answer
that 
inner call.

No One Seems To Know

No One Seems To Know ~ Photo by Patrice

No one seems to know
nor do they understand
the way to heaven
is always open
That
it’s there
Always
at their command.

In It’s Grip

March 13, 2020

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

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

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.

Everyday I See Something

November 13, 2019

Stairs ~ Photo by Patrice

Everyday I see something
That resembles twelve
Part of nature, earth, sky
The clouds.

Breathing in, breathing out
Spectacular
as I turn
Whirl about.

Maybe tomorrow
I’ll understand, take it all in
Then tell the rest of the world
What it’s all about.

I Haven’t Stopped

May 8, 2019

Chairs in Aruba ~ Photo by Patrice

I haven’t stopped to understand
Haven’t known which way
Is at my command
All seems so hard
To comprehend, to understand.

Please let me know
The knowledge needed
The way be seen
For without this where will I be
Except the same place
I’ve always been.

Never Known Where I Belong

January 11, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Rottie Pups ~ Painting by Patrice

Never known where I belong
Seems to me my whole family
Is just wrong.

Why? Why?

Neither does my love’s
Seem willing to embrace
Me strong.

Why? Why?

I don’t know where I belong
Wherever I go
The same seems to apply.

Why? Why?

Am I from another earth?
Do I belong in a time
Gone by?

Can’t say
Don’t know what’s wrong.

Or should I just understand
The world belongs to those
That accept different as they are
Part of the woven web
Is what we are.

We belong, we belong
I now know where it is I belong.

Why Not Understand

November 23, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

3 Rotties ~ Illustration by Patrice

Why not try to understand
All the confusion swirling round
Like a crazy marching band.

Don’t know where, don’t know why
But somehow I need to cry
Release the hurt, set free the sigh.

Move beyond the crazies
Then maybe, maybe
Understand the reason why.
