Silent Light


Darkness prevailed

While wars were fought

Lies were told

Shadows deepened

Their grip upon us all

Until in the crack

In that wall

Did appear

A longing

Of what

Could be

Without fear


A spark

Of tiny

Silent

Light

Burned

Brightly

Into the night

Our eyes

Opened wide

As we saw

A truth

The true

Love

Awoken

In the midst

We became

Aware

Love

Carries us on

Forward

Unto a new dawn

Forever blessed

Basking in light

We live on

Carrying on

In the Silent Light

Rivers of Tomorrows

Shadows of the past
Drift behind us
Visions of dreams
Cast lures before us
Tempting us to move
Ever forward
Catching our thoughts
Of a brilliant adventure 
Our curiosity takes hold
As we step out into the waves
Swimming into the currents
Of all tomorrows
Our joyney begins here
Blessings always 
And Happy New Year

One Light

One Light
By Pauline Harris

Off in the distance 
Only darkness 
Prevailed
For a long, long time
Loneliness 
Persisted
Needing more
Some entertainment 
A call went out
Reaching far
Into the nothingness 
To find a piece
Of the light
Flickering
And becoming aware
The light grew
With the love received 
Until one day
The whole planet
Became united
In listening 
And learning
To join together
In the peace
That had always present 
Just heeding the call
To work together as one
In love eternally

May we each listen
to our hearts and 
Find the love
Surrounding us
Everyday in every way

To Inspire

Those who inspire 
are amazing people indeed
For they lead
Without desire
or wanting themselves
Just for the pure joy
of bringing people
To know ourselves
~pharris

A Pause

Please stop for a pause. 
Ponder this for a moment.
We met somewhere, 
Sometime, or online. 
Relay a fond memory
Of our days of old.
And thank you for the blessings
You have made in our lives.

circulating the internet)

Beneath Stillness

Be U Fully 
In the silence
People will know
You fully 
By the life
You present
Quietly now
All is known
Through love

The Match


A piece of wood

Once said

Light me up

But we replied

We can’t,

You need

Something more

A spark of fire

then commented

I can help with that

All I need is you

And some oxygen, too

We can be together

A fire set upon the match

Joined as one

The match burned on

Lighting up our hearts

With joy and some warmth

Together the fire and wood

Burned on as one

On The Wall

Sitting 
Waiting 
I look 
Around
Lost in
Thought

And there
Before my eyes
I see cycles
Waving
In and out
All about
The wall

Lighted cycles
Waving in and out

Mesmerizing

I look further 
To the source

The lights
They are moving
With the wind

Oh those cycles
Sending me off
To a dream world
Far from the lights
Into the cycles
Wind rushing
Here and there
Waves splashing

A distant yell
A slap
And back to
Reality
And time to swim
By Pauline Harris

Mirror Image

Walking towards
The mirror I saw
No reflection 
Perplexed, I was
Not normal was this
A problem to solve
As I sat in front
A faint ripple
Waved a guiding
Circle towards
My gaze
Bringing with it
An invitation 
To venture through 
The mirror 
To the other side
A little excited
A little unease
I felt the tension
Building within
Taking the cue
I stepped into
Into the unknown 
Wanting to know
More about why
Why there was no
Reflection 
And where to find it
Clearly answers 
Were ahead
Passing by
Other portals
For they were
Distractions
The path to answers 
Fluidly lead me
By pointing
To the familiar 
Layers of light
Seeing these rays
Sent comforting waves
To my heart
I pressed on
Seeking the truth
Only to find
It was deep within me
The reflection 
Now discovered
Deeply imprinted
My mind to see
Love surrounded me
By Pauline Harris

One Orchid

An exciting day
Was planned 
For each to see
What we could 
Discover

Something unusual 
Was out there to find

A field full of poppies 
Was where I ran
Far into to hide

To find some peace
And solitude

Only to discover
Amungst the red
Red poppies 
Was a secret
Visitor

An solitary orchid
Peaking up
As if to say hi

I left that field 
Feeling a joy
Unmeasureable

Thinking back 
I wander did anyone
Else ever discover
The orchid among the poppies
