A Hummingbird Came

Hummingbird and Feeder ~ photo by Patrice

A hummingbird came
To my window yesterday
She pleaded and begged
Me not to put away
That feeder which fills
Her each, everyday.

She needs calories
To fly away
On an epic journey
To warm, hot lands
Far far away.

Maybe tomorrow
She’ll leave
Before the snow flies
And the leaves
Are deceased.

So now, today
She pleads
Fill it up, leave it be
Help her get ready
For her long, long
Epic journey.

I Saw A Hummingbird Amongst Snowflakes

May 12, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

I saw a hummingbird amongst snowflakes
Shattering life, no respite
Falling into spring cold and shivering
Hovering over brave blooms
As you come to make a summer home
In this land that has no way
To warm and comfort
On this cold spring day.

Fly south I’d say, then wait a day
Before braving storms to come back
To the land you can call
A summer home once more
Yes, I saw a hummingbird
Amongst snowflakes just today.

Brilliant Disguise

July 21, 2015

cobwebs  and geraniums ~ Photos by Patrice

Brilliant disguise
Right in front of my eyes
No fancy dress, no holding up
A tent of darkness .

Just standing there
Looking like a warm, courteous thing
Smile inviting
Beckoning in.

Trusting, I begin to move forward
To be enveloped in
That disguise
That brilliant disguise

That sucked me in.

There I Am

April 23, 2015

Rising Fiddle Head ~ Photo by Patrice

There I am in my robe
Watching closely as the earth disrobes
All it’s ugly, nasty things
Rising up in beauty
Filled with summer and with spring.
Winter’s cold, bitter hate
Melted here, no distaste
Only warm, fulfilling beams
Creating more lovely dreams.

Bless the ground I stand upon
Know it gives me faith true and strong
Trusting I’ll be here long after
Spring flowers fade and go
But memories of what has been
Or yet to come
Will hold my own sheltering robe so tight
That I know I will be safe
On earth’s soft ground tonight.

Seek The Answer

Hummingbird ~ photo by Patrice



Seek the answer

Letting it envelop you
In a place
Warm and sweet

Close your eyes
Exactly what you need

Spread out your fingers
And touch the answer

The answer that you seek

Coldness, Blizzard, Freezing Snow

February 27, 2014

Winter's Road ~ Photo by Patrice

Coldness, blizzard, freezing snow
Never ending this I know.

Have to ask will it ever end
This coldness, blizzard, freezing snow?

Where to go?
Where is warm with blazing sun?
No coldness, blizzard, freezing snow.

Coldness Infiltrates

December 16, 2013

Winter Snow ~ photo by Patrice

Coldness infiltrates every crevice, cranny
Make no mistake death could come
If you don’t take precautions
To keep warm and make
Your world a warm, cosy loving place.
