Walk Gently

Some feel the need

to tear someone down,

but take a moment to truly listen

There might be some common ground

for each of us to learn

and share with one another

For we are here together

Living next to one another

Maybe one day we will hear

We are so much stronger together

Blessings to all~Pauline Harris

The Girl With a Candle

The Girl With a Candle


This girl had heard

Of a special time

When all were given

A candle to hold

Now hold this candle tight

Do not fright

From the light

It may flicker

It may falter

But this light

This very light

Is an expression

Of love


The girl stood there

With the candle

In her hands

A little shaken

With anxiety

As the light was lit

From the stage

And passed around


Until the light

Was on her row

She calmed herself

It is just a light


And here it was

Her turn to have hers lit

Deep breath

Brightly the flame burned

For all to see

She smiled with glee

The girl looked

Deeply into the flame

Wondrous colours

Glaze her eyes

Setting her heart

All aglow with delight


Waves of air

Blew all around

Not my candle,

The girl stood

Her ground


My flame is lit

It shines so bright

I want all to see

How beautiful

This world could be


For you see

The light is

In both you and me

Sure candles may

Have flames that burn

But our lights shine on

Day and night

Blessings to all

May joy and hope delight us all

In The Shadows

In the Shadows

Deep in the darkness

There lurks the secrets

A few numerous ones

Can seem like clouds

Fogging the mind

With twists and turns

Luring us in further

Shall we go in as asked

However there is some cracks

Slices in the fog letting in wonder

A light so strong

It will never falter

Keeping an eye

Upon this opening

We begin to strengthen

And allow ourselves to grow

Deep inside we flourish

In creativity and inspiration

Allowing others to join in

The discoveries of joy and hope

For in the shadows

The shades may seem to win

But if we hold true to our very being

We prevail with a new found sense

Of what we need to carry on

With our joyney through life

By Pauline Harris

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

By Pauline Harris

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
