The Spark of Light

The Spark of Light
by Pauline Harris
Beginning with the sun
The light grew up big
So much so, it had to leave
And be whisked away
Along the rays
Falling through the clouds
Down to earth it came
Searching for someone
No one person could name
Until spark found
A lonely little soul
Knowing full well
There was joy filled here
Scattered all around
The flames began to grow
For this Light was Love
Continuing to touch
Each soul with joy unbound
Love created laughter
And a sense of safety
All who came to see
Wanted this for you and me

Opportunities, maybe

I see a crack in the window…

many doors have shut…

some have slammed into my face…

some unanswered calls…

somehow that crack in the window

holds something dear…

I move closer…there is a light waves

reaching forth out of the depths…

gravitating towards me…

I hunger for its wisdom…

I hunger for its path…

unknowing where it may lead…

my lust for something new

and different excites me…

I must follow…


I step up…here I am…

ready or not…I am here now…

thank you for the crack in the window~pharris2011

Keep On Loving

Keep on Loving
Expressions of gratitude
Fill our soul with
Sparks of Light
Brightening us all
Others may find pleasure
In mocking or discrediting
But the real joy
Is found in Love
Love that is shared
By those who cared
Keep on Loving
And spreading the wealth
In the passion called Love
And blessings will follow
Maybe some tears
Love is eternal
And found everywhere
by Pauline Harris

The Day of the Smiles

“This story began with a smile. One day, I woke up and was rather happy. So I smiled. My eggs for breakfast did not crack right. I spilled some water for my tea. Yet I smiled. Got into my car and had forgotten my purse. So went back inside with a smile. I figured there is a plan for this day, not my plan. I will go with the flow. On my way, someone passed me then turned to get off on the next exit. Another person sped passed me weaving in and out. I took my time. Later on saw the one who was speeding in an accident and hoped everyone was okay. Lastly, I saw this man on the corner not dressed very well holding up a sign. I thought to myself, he is probably another homeless person wanting food. However, I was wrong. The sign simply said smile. The guy looked at me and pointed to the sign. I smiled and so did he.”~pharris


Misty fog had rolled in
I stood there watching
Deep in the forest
Trees surrounding me
Winds hollaring whispers
Words of unconscious wisdom
My mouth closed shut
My mind set in between
Neither wanting to speak
Quietly I stood and gazed
No words were spoken
And yet a multitude of
Emotions ran through
My veins
Bringing my breathing
Almost to a standstill
Lost in the moment
I took a deep breath
Awakening my spirit
Remembering and
Forgiving in order to
Move forward
Ever focused
On love
Carrying me
Along this path
On to new
For the joyney

In Solitude with others

By Pauline Harris

Drink Up

Sitting quietly

Alone with thoughts

Reaching out

To get the clear container

Slowly opening the lid

Moving the bottle

Lips puckered with thirst

The liquid streamed down

Deep into the belly

Emptying the desire

Only to reach for another

Down it went like the other

Thoughts seem distant

As another swig of desire

Twinkled down the throat

Refreshing water

Soothed my thirst

Satisfied for now

I move on…I have to move on
