One Ripple

 
Long ago, one drop
Came to form
So excited it was
It fell down
All the way to earth
Making waves
Upon waves
Forming
One ripple
Expanding
To impact
More ripples
Exploding
Into a multitude
Of effects
As the one drop
Had made such a
Huge impact
Just by falling
From the clouds
Way up high
Bringing joy abound
To everyone around

The Shake Up

A time of joy shattered

As humans attack with harmful hearts

A bombardment of long lost

Almost all but forgotten

Memories erupted and surfaced

Yes my heart aches for the loss

Focused upon past events

Terrors as a child

Witnessing partly on news

Some hearsay

Some reality

All focused upon

Developing minds

Sways of persuasions

Coercion

Propaganda

Trusted sources

Loosing sight

Rights and wrongs

Harmful information

Loss of focus

The truth is pure

Facts with the story

Freedom to discuss

Aide when needed

Comfort when someone takes time

Listening with love

Expressing understanding

Allowing expressions

To take on many forms

Solutions may come

A settled heart

Gains a multitude of rewards

Shake ups may happen

Focusing on love

Brings joy back

When Angels Sing

Silently the hush
Upon the world
Did take part
In cleansing ears
Making room for
Those voices
So peacefully clear
All who desired
Were able to hear
The songs sung
By the angels
Basking in joy
Spreading light
To one and all
Listen closely
Love is spreading here
~by Pauline Harris

In The Shadows

 

A sultry hot mist
Gave the day
Ample sparks
Whispers were laden
With half truths
Suading distorted views
Compacted by loss
Loss of trust
In those set to protect
By their own accord
A match not yet lit
Fell to the ground
As the clash erupted
Provoked into being
Seeing the horrors
Had to take time
To release a beating breath
Talking freely
Without judgment
Or prejudices
Found solid ground
Set in caring more
For an universal love
And a deep insight
Of the sadness
We all felt
For the
Broken system
Which continues
Behind the veil
Stepping aside
Showered with truth
Understanding more
We survived
To be
Bringers
Of
A new found joy
Which delights
In the unfolding
Hope
Within the shadows

Ode To ‘The Canterville Ghost’

(Inspiration ‘The Canterville Ghost’ by Oscar Wilde)
 
There upon opening
The book led me
Deep inside to inquire within
The words seem
To read by themselves
The story set out
Full of mystery, suspense
Innocent and yet worldly
 
Entranced, I read on
A girl to discover
A long forgotten
Ghostly presence
Would bring her
To a new level
Of understanding
 
Forgiveness
Trust
Friendship
And Love
Here was this story
Forgotten until
A bonding came forth
To bear fruit
On an unbearan tree
And tears and words
Would soon set
‘The Canteville Ghost’ free.

Moments Into Blindness

One day many moons ago,

I awoke and could not see

Darkness and a fuzzy haze

Was all my eyes could focus upon

The scare had stirred up emotions

Closing my eyes helped

Feeling around for some bearings

Allowing my body to recover

From the shock of the moment

Breathing deeply in and out

I knew somehow, I was going no where

In need of some answers, but rest first

I found my way through the room

To a place I could rest my head

Pulling the covers up

Comfortable, I took a nap

Awakening, I opened my eyes

Slowly and discovered

I could see again

But the sense of blindness

Has lingered on

Old Answers

 
Many moons have past
Since the writings
Wise and concise
Foretold of questions
Yet to be asked
Voices not born
Lore telling truths
Many would deny
Secrets within
Unifying moments
Would bring unity
And understanding
There are many
In one, but only if
And a big if
We recognized
Our right to carry on
Inspiring others
To find joy
Within the wisdom
Written so long ago
~by Pauline Harris
