Happy Earthday Everyday

Happy Earthday Everyday
We were born here on earth
We have lived here our lives
We eat, we play, we work, we…
We were sent to care for our world
We cannot do the care alone
But we can make small steps
To make sure there is a home
For future generations
One small part of the bigger picture
As we have no where else to go currently
Take care of this world for all of us
Together, surviving separately yet together

Good Friday

Good Friday 
I knew God’s plan 
Would be fulfilled soon
Reflecting on our shared meal
Of just not long ago, last night
We lovingly prayed together 
I telling you new rules
‘To love God above all’
And also
‘To love one another, 
As I have loved you’
Continuing our meal
We ate together 
Turning bread into my body
We drank together 
Turning wine into my blood
Symbols becoming real
Soon what I was born to do
Will become true because all of you
One of you got paid
But all of you will deny me
Say you don’t follow me
I accept this as it is all
Part of the Will of God 
Today I am at court
And sentenced to die
The only ‘sin’ I committed
Was to Love and share God’s plan 
Of mercy and of grace 
‘I suffer, so you may live’
Here I am Lord, my God
‘Forgive them, for into Your Hands
I come in peace’
And may love prevail 
Everywhere and in everyone
Forever and always 
And So It Is
Amen

By Pauline Harris

Unslumping

Life has a roller coaster feeling
Slow to start out, learning new things
Taking small steps leading to bigger ones
Giant leaps up to the top
Quickly tumbling downward
Racing heart jumping all about
Confusing the mind 
Which direction is the right one to take
Some encourage going this way
But insecurity tells us ‘no’
Waiting for a sign, allowing the moment to speak
A rainbow does appear
Shining a light for us to follow
This way to get unstuck
And soon joy does follow us
By Pauline Harris

Notre Dame

Notre Dame 
A poem by Pauline Harris

The introduction was simple 
A hunchback man and a cathedral 
Songs were sung
People were helped
Some fears realized
And peace found
Within the walls
Where the Rose Window
Shined in glory
Grace befell upon all

Later on I began to see
The Gargoyles watching
Keeping the city safe
The angels and saints
Help to keep the watch
Peaceful in grace and song

During my visit
The reality awoke in me
In the distance on a canal boat
I saw the steeple and arches
As the boat moved closer
There were areas under repair
My heart sank some
As the outward beauty 
Was not for me to see

And then the walk to the front
Lots of people gathered 
Here and there, many excited
Just as much as me
Some were praying

The great Rose Window 
Up way up high
Dim on this side 
As the rains came down
Determined I pressed on
Through the archway of the door
I am in awe and take a deep breath

Artwork everywhere 
Statues, paintings, relics,
Carvings all detailing stories
Loads of people 
All wanting to take in this moment

And I turned my head
To see my heart leap 
My joyney now complete 
As the Rose Window shown
The richness of light
And blessed us all with the sight

Decades have passed
Since that one day
A fire struck the Cathedral 
Loosing it’s steeple
And much of the structure

But there is spirit 
That has been expressed
Although now in ashes
Wonderment will arise
Becoming compassionate love
Bringing the world together 
With grace, hope, and joy

To Connect With Oil

To Connect With Oil
By Pauline Harris

Preparations made
Gathered oil and some cloths
A friend joined with me
As we sat readying ourselves

Calmly we looked at the oil
Taking a damp cloth
We washed our hands
Delicately touching each 
And then our feet
Each toe and finger cleansed

Turning to my friend
Sitting quietly
Reflecting on moments
Times we spent together 
Seeing the love we have enjoyed

I take my friend’s hand
Gently massaging each part
Adding some oil 
Here and there
Encompassing the loving care
We have for one another

And then my friend took
My hand anointing me with oil

Such a powerful time
Each of us in shared respect
Taking time to sit with each other 
Taking time to acknowledge 
Our friendship and love
We are at peace
Caring and sharing as one
