Passing Angel Tears

Passing Angel Tears
In days of old
I felt a connection
To this one
Who stood
Before millions
Speaking
Of times
Long since past
Of a teacher
Who knew
All were one
I knew these words
As they resonated
Deep within
But then others came
And tried to change
How I felt
Stating only these
And not those
Somehow I knew
The truth was free
And here it was
In the only place
Of all over, everywhere
For tears flowed
From the sky
From all the beings
From the land
Flowing in the rivers
Flowing in the ponds
Flowing in the sea
For all are created
To inspire and create
To allow the flow
From one tear drop
To an everflowing stream
The loss of one who taught
So many to see and know
The joy is in the living each moment
As one breath leads to another
Ripples downstream
Into every awoken being
Angels here
Angels above
Angels all around
Guide us as we live
And survive to connect

Reflection

Reflection

A bald eagle on ice
Looking down seeing
Time had come
When many, too many
Were forgotten
Lives had shattered
Due to differences
Belief systems
Some fought to conserve
Their much desired wealth
Or their freedom of their
Religion to be the only one
But they failed to see
Their lives would loose
Sight of what was true
The beauty in this reflection
Is the diversity of us all
The inviting spirit
Making us great
In creating a
Beautiful world
Through innovation
And diversity
Giving us a moment
To reflect on
How we can move
Forward once again

Spring Approaches

Spring is soon upon us
As blossoms set to bloom
Trees share their green leaves
And now is the time to prepare
For the growth to begin
Rains have started to fall
And now is the time to enjoy
Fair well in these days of grace
For there is but one thing to do
Readying and carrying on

Joy to Swim

 

The crisp water awaits
My toe reaches the top
A ripple begins
Making tiny waves
My whole foot incased
Within the water
At the edge
Both feet engulfed
Stepping in further
Not too fast
Slowly emerging myself
And then I dive deep
Swimming along the bottom
Breathing bubbles
Exploring the depths
Then wiggling my way up
Carefully moving around
Not to disturb others
Each of us exercising
Our own little routines
Getting those core muscles
Strong and healthy
Dive again to the bottom
Like a dolphin
Amazing feeling free
Just me swimming deep
Down under the water
Looking up to see
The ripples and waves
Gliding over me

Snow On the Beach

Crashing waves hit
With shattered ice
Upon the snow covered
White sandy beaches

Cranes fly away
From the swamp
Into the vast trees
By the river so deep

Quietly I ponder
About wonderment
Surrounding me
This very moment
By Pauline Harris

WaterDreams Meditation

Imagine in the stillness of the moment…

one ventures into the water

after a long walk on the beach…

time for a swim like no other…

a wave rushes towards one…

open arms to embrace

the oncoming water as one dives

into see what beauties lie beneath…

down deep down one travels…

seeing all kinds of colourful beings…

n some seethrough ones…

deeper deeper one travels…

seeking something…

something is drawing one down…

an excitement is reaching into one’s soul…

drawing one in…

deeply drawn…

one finds something…

something wonderful…

a treasure…

now to go up…

to catch one’s breath…breathe in…

breathing deeply in…

oh my what a delight…

A Footstep

 

Safe and cuddled
All stuck in my bed
Coldness lingers
Outside these walls
Duties becon
To come hither
Warmth surrounds me
Here in my covers
Dare I
I must get up
Brrr, that first
Footstep
Outside
The warm
Covers
Gave me
A shock
I am now
Awake
And yet I linger
On that vision
Of those warm
Bed covers…
Okay, I am awake
But those covers
Will call for me
Until I cuddle them
Once more

Just A Footstep
