Let Us Play, Play For Fun

I see you, you see me
We play a game or two
Only me, you, and the hat
Keep focus, the target is here
No one wins, just for fun

a forgiving heart

A heart full of forgiveness
Is full of light
Which can be shared
With the rest of the world
To shine a path To follow with no regrets
Just gratitude and humbleness …

Peaceful Presence

Looking around the yard
While sitting on the deck
Up in the tree on a branch
Sits two doves comfortably
Cardinals at the bird feeder
Chickadees flying around
Squirrels on the ground
All this happening until
My dogs come outside
To explore and chase the squirrels
Protecting the yard
Searching and finding
The squirrels and doves
Up the tree…time to come in
The yard is peaceful once again

Visiting The Castle

(inspiration: photo of spiral steps in a castle plus memories)

I collected my backpack
With some pencils and sketchbook
Rolls, cheese, and juice
Ready for the day away
Onto the bus along with the class
Our trip to the castle
Included walking all around
So crowded was this day
People walking closely together
Called to walk up the steps
In the tower with the ropes on both sides
Tiny steps leading up, up to the top
Small windows every fifty steps or more
Barely showing the way up
Using the ropes to guide the way
Finally I make to the top
Only to find out I must
Go back down the same way
By Pauline Harris

When…Then…

Whispers called
As the window opened
The doors had been shut
For so long the whispers were only
Faintly heard but what now
A step outside might do
To only know for sure
Grab the towel and go out the door
For only each of us can joyney
Together and on our own

Try Again?

Buggers, another attempt down the drain
Starting over seems so very mundane
Forward must the path may lead
To succeed one must carry on
By Pauline Harris

Lonely Walk

Even though the path
Maybe accompanied by others
Supporting in many ways
The healing must take place alone
The temple, the soul, the very being
Adjustments are made to ensure health
Smiles and hugs lead to brighter days
The path is still meant for walking alone
For no two have the same shoes
Each path is unique
Recovery for some
Love and healing hugs
Given to all who walk
This path to find hope
