A Hummingbird Came

September 8, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

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.

Yesterday

May 15, 2017

Teck, in Remembrance

When I think
Of all the things
That have disappeared
Gone away
Happened yesterday
My heart joins forces
With my soul
To help me understand
Why it all had to go away
Yesterday.

Beginning A New Year

Beginning a new year
A new day
Leaving all that’s bad
In yesterday.

Bringing with me
Only love and joy
Created there
In my yesterday.

What Has Happened

December 1, 2016

Moving Pass ~ Photo by Patrice

What has happened
To the day, the month
And the year?

It has been here
Now gone on its way
Becoming nothing more
Than yesterday.

Seeking to see tomorrow
I lost sight of today
Where I had hoped to live
Everyday.

Realizing it only
When I looked back
To see yesterday passing
From tomorrow right on by
Thru me today.

When I Think About It

When I think about it
I can’t stay
In the realm of
Yesterday.

Move away, move away
From the thoughts, the times
Lived yesterday
Yesterday.

Let me take the steps needed
To go in the direction
Necessary and okay
Today, tomorrow and yesterday.

Have You Seen Optimistic?

December 4, 2014

Jackal ~ Illustration by Patrice for Holt, Rinehart and Winston's reader, 'Flights Near And Far'

Have you seen optimistic?
Where, oh where could she be?
At one time she was here
Right beside of me.

She kept me company
Laughed and made me see
The happy, caring way
Just what I need.

But yesterday
She left, she left me
Have you seen optimistic?
If you do, please tell me.
