Washing Hands

Washing Hands
By Pauline Harris

Stepping up to the sink
One hand turns the faucet on
Water flows down into the drain
Both hands reach for the soap
Enough soap to wash them
Lathering each crevice, not missing a spot
Around each finger to the tips
In between, both palm and back
Feeling the soap bubbling
With each stroke inside and out
Moving the hands to the flowing water
Clearing off each reminent
Watching all the soap and dirt
Go swiftly down, down the drain
Washing the grime away

A simple act we can do
To protect us and others
In a small way everyday

Do We Listen

Light Shines in a Crack

Sometimes the light
Is shining brightly
Through the crack

The light may not be
Visible through the fog
But hope illuminates
For us to eventually see
The light beyond

Knowing the light is there
And for us to see one day
Take heart in that thought
Allowing it to warm us
All around with Heartsmiles

The Walk

The Walk
by Pauline Harris

Out the door
Two dogs on leads
A tug to go this way
And another to go that
Each dog with her own mind
Each wanting their choice
Forgetting all are in this together
We each must make the effort
To take the path forward
An agreement is made
Walking the path down
Deep into the valley
Through the old tree forest
And to the rolling stream
The water flowing over
The pebbles in the gentle brook
Guiding us along the way
Each of taking in the moment
Of the peaceful journey
And now the brisk walk
To return home renewed

Living Light

Living Light
By Pauline Harris

Many moons ago
A spark was lit
Growing strong
Deeply implanted
In kindness and compassion
The spark grew
Into a flame
Growing strong
Being passed on
To all those who care
Sharing the love
Growing strong
Encompassing the sky

A Quilt

We are like a quilt
All different parts
Threads and materials
We are put together
Made strong in love
Completed and strong
Combined to comfort
And protect ourselves
From whatever forces
Do come our way
Together we rely
And support each other
By Pauline Harris

Purple Blossoms

A bright light shines
Through the crack
Reaching forth to bring
Healing hugs
