Love Joy Foward

Love it forward. We all are going along in our own joyney. Sometimes, we may need a little more than a hug. Others may need much more than we can do alone. No one lives without aid from another whether it be something grown, something sewn, something made, something learned, … We all depend on others in some form or another. Share that hug, that smile, that light, that love…and carry on. By Pauline Harris

Shadowy Faces

Only glimpses of each person
Do we see, seeking their own story
They each describe one incident
In clear detail from one perspective
Although another will tell it differently
Each lived their lives similarly
However their vantage point differs widely
So the stories they tell and live
Are true to each of them
At that particular moment
For the story is ever-evolving
As each moment creates new perspectives
With each new breath one takes

The Delicate Rose

Once many years ago
A boy, I liked gave me
This one delicate rose
Although he just liked me
As a friend, he thought it good
To give such a gift
And it was. I learned much
From that rose gift
Of courage to be a friend
Of beauty and of caring
Of letting go of my whims
For the sake of something greater
Time has passed and we departed
On our separate ways
But no doubt, I still think of him
Now and again, the noble rose
He gave me and the humble heart
I learned to keep
Friendships have meant much to me
Grateful for each of them
The gifts we give go beyond words

Aura of Angels

A simple smile
Whispers momentous joy
Reaching the hearts
Of millions in one gesture
Spreading comfort to all
And them continuing the journey
Peaceful times unfolded
Warmth and laughter ensued
Singing and dancing
Sharing meals
Powerful presences
The angelic blessings

One Carousel Ride

(Inspiration:  a photo of a carousel)

Just invited for a family outing
Only knew many of them barely
Shy, but adventurous. ..learning more outgoing
I went along to the harbor
Meeting relatives for the first time
A great dinner and then walking
Exploring the boardwalk…finding the carousel
My great grandma looked at it
With such joy in her eyes
She asked for me to ride it
In her stead…glee in my heart
I road the merry horse around
Around …around… and away I go
Such fun…until I saw
Someone making fun of me
Horrified, I cried…I was crushed.
Devastated to this day of the awful
Things do to others …sad now

Tough Reads

(Inspiration:  a photo of a puppy yawning while laying between some books on a bookshelf.  One book is ‘Money’ by Zola and another book is ‘Origin of Species’ by Darwin.)
One day this puppy decides books
Are the way to succeed in
Life. Finding these books on a
Shelf, the puppy takes a gander
And begins to read. Not knowing
How tough each books subjects were,
The puppy soon yawns and falls
Asleep. Learning some books are rough.

Pieces Of You

You left a letter
Stating your intentions
Leaving our relationship
And departing on your way
You said you needed to
Clear your head
Shocked, I wept
Time passed by
No sign of your return
Soon a distant memory
I moved on until
One day, a knock
Queries about you
Did I know you
Yes, but why the questions
They replied all
That was found
Was pieces of you
I wept in horror
And in pain
I had loved you
