Rocky Roads in Life

There will always be rocks
In our pathway 
Through our joyney 
However it is up to us
Whether those rocks
Make us stumble 
Or fall 
Or learned to walk
Learn to create
A new vision 
Of what the world
Is to be with
All the pebbles
Becoming a world
For all of us 
To thrive and be alive
Blessings to us all

Oh The Loved Ones

Oh The Loved Ones
By Pauline Harris

Somehow we met
You were walking
Out of the hospital 
Almost running 
A joyous smile
Swept across 
Your face
I was a bit
Frightful 
As surgery 
Was my mission 
You just smiled
And said hi
My nerves 
Seemed to 
Fade away
I looked at you
And saw someone 
Who was hurting 
But instead of
Dwelling
You were 
Excited 
Joyful 
In that moment 
And that was
The start
Of a short lived
Friendship 
For you died
Only a few years
Later
Bye bye bye
30 years ago
This December 
I miss your smile

Gratitude

I am grateful for friends and family who care and share and inspire. 
I am grateful for those who protect our freedoms.
I am grateful for those who serve the world and make the world better.
I am grateful for the artists and writers who have courage to portray the visions into reality. 
I am grateful for compassion and hope.
May the essence of gratitude fill our hearts and minds with love and light to spread throughout the world.

Finding A Path

In finding our own way:

Each of us has lived lives differently.

Even twins have differences.

Our paths may connect on so many levels,

but our own path is ours alone.

It is wonderful to find others

to connect with along the way.

Those connections make life worth living.

Universal Idea

stop…STOP…think…Think about what impact on others your actions n words on them…and what impact these words n actions have on you…the golden rule is universal…do things to others as you would have them do to you ~pharris2011

Two Views Become One

This poem is in response to a post of two photos taken by a friend. ..one photo is of a calm lake with clouds over the sun, the other photo is of a lake with ripples in it and the sun is clearly visible.

Two Views Become One
By Pauline Harris

Sitting by the lake
I gaze out to see
What the view is
Clouds wave
Up in the air
With calm waters
Wishing the clouds
To disburse
I close my eyes
And whosh
The wind blows
Opening my eyes
I see the gentle
Waters gone
The clouds swept away
Sun is shining brightly
And ripples
Where calm was
In my waters

And so is life
Until we find
That each moment
Is a blessing
Unto itself
Finding joy
And sharing
To make this world
Better for all
Who dwell here
Together we can

Vote Your Voice

Vote Your Voice
By Pauline Harris

Time has come
To make a note
Who is the one
Who speaks for all
All who are represented
Working for all
Not just for themselves
Nor for what others
May force upon them to do
The people matter
Not just a few
For each are
Of the people
So we vote by the people
For the one person
Who we believe
Has our ‘The Peoples’
Best methods
Of supporting us
Of making our lives better
Of making the world healthier
And to share compassion
And mercy daily

 

Vote our voice

As our vote is

Our voice

To be heard
