Thank You

I am grateful
For a gift given
Without asking
Words cannot express
My humble thanks
At this very moment
Thank you for
Your love and kindness
By Pauline Harris



Memories can

always with you –
as you grow-
to form new experiences- 
that will hold-
hope and keep-
love alive-
peace be with all-
who read this-
blessings and love

Growing Hope

Growing Hope
lines altered as
ripples begin to
express the light
That is found
Deep within
Walk again
In the compassion
We all know
Is the path to love

A Light Shines ON

Be still my heart
The earth trembles
Fires spew out
From the earth’s crust
Furies of discourse roar
Strongly to threaten justice
Truth speaking in whispers
Twisted words taking lead
Smoke easing out
Poisoning all, but going unnoticed
As focus is on mirrors
Cracks do appear
Opening up as the morning star
Rises in the east
Bridging more than just friends
Bringing together hope
A light shines its way
Into the hearts of us
Everyday and everyway
With answers to end all hate
And bring poverty to an end
Delusional visions still mask
Those who only see themselves
We can prevail and making this world
A world for all, not just those who think
There are limits in a world of unending hope
Love will win, if we choose to see
With our hearts, not just our minds
by Pauline Harris

Careful Fishies

we lil fishies

of the sea

luv to get hooked

on the good ones…

we try to avoid

the bad hooks,

but sometimes get

hooked on them…

good thing we can


get unhooked

if we choose to be…

time to go

swimming in the seas

of life and beyond

to the ocean of beings too.

So fishers let your rods

reel some good bait. Pharris 2012/2018

Is Anyone Listening

Someone out there

is whispering…

can you hear them…

they are saying

something important…

something one person

needs to hear…

listen closely and

you might hear

them whispering…

they only whisper

because everyone

around them is yelling or

talking over them…

can you hear them…

the whisper is

in the wind… pharris 2010

Tear Or Tear

Tear Or Tear

To tear apart
Make a rip in fabric
Or paper
Torn into pieces

And a tear forms
Within the eye
Fast becoming more
Tears fall down
Crying out
Over the sadness left
After the tears became tears

And now the realization
One spelling having
Multiple meanings
