Blessings

‘Count those Blessings
One by one’
For each of us
Needs to know
The joys in life
Help carry us through
From one day
To the future
And beyond
The knowing
And into
The shared
Love and compassion
We all cherish
One by one
Our blessings
Flow like a stream
Sharing and caring
Touching our lives
Spreading across
The planet
Making more
Memories
To share these
Blessings
One by one
Enjoy these blessings
Share these blessings
One to another

Lady of Compassion

 

Traveling around,
She learned to see
More than with her eyes
Her heart led her
To many places
Learning many things
Trying so much
Much beyond her norm
This lady reached
From within
To bring joy
Happy to give
To bring hope
A longing from others
Comforted
To bring love
As her understanding grew
She offered her
Humble heart
Wholeheartedly
This lady
Brought compassion
To all she came
To know through
Her travels.

The Search Begins Within…

Searching for something bright and beautiful

…must begin with awakening thyself to

seeing there is beauty within

…letting it out to see there is a world to see…

Let us see what this adventure in life is to be

look first in the mind…and see all

by Pauline Harris

Beginning With One

One life

is something to be

Stand Still

Stand Still

Silence
Takes over
As heart
Begins
To race
He looks
Your way
Stepping
Ever closer
Anxious
Are the tales
Truthfully told
Sweat persists
Seeking calm
Breathing
Intensely
Seems to take
Forever and a day
What does he want
Frantic
I look for
Some sign
I go over
Every moment
Ah, here it is
My papers
My story
Is in my head
Of what happened
He stands before me
Silenced
Scared now
He taps the window
I can’t breathe
Tears rush my face
He holds out his hand
I look down at it
Not empty
Feeling faint
My mind shuts down
Quietly I attempt
To breathe
Lost in time
Allowing the inevitable
To happen
I make peace
At least in my mind
Deep breaths
In and out
He stares at me
Shaking, too
I close my weeping eyes
No longer able to see
Whatever happens
Will happen
I pray
For his forgiveness
And forgive him
Let me breathe
Again tomorrow
Let the world
Be alright
I prayed
I prayed
I prayed
And he wept
For the kindness
Of forgiveness
Had touched
His soul

A Moment of Joy and Beyond

 

Giving directions
Teaching skills
Allowing for innovation 
New discoveries made
When each one
Is allowed to flourish
And become fully
Realized as part
Of the whole process
Joy is acknowledged
By Pauline Harris

Unexpected Sparkle

 

Deep darkness
Surrounds
The vastness
Of the night’s sky
Tiny moon casting
Down shadows
Upon the earth’s
Surface as we walk
Looking up
In pure amazement
As a small
Sparkle
Does appear
Out of no where
Slowly
Moving
Across
The sky
Destination
Unknown
Except
To bring
A moment of …
Dissappearing
Into the darkness
With the only
Trace within
Memories
Of that sparkle
By Pauline Harris
