Eye Cloud




Light Showing the Way

The long walk

into the woods

led us astray

we looked for

a way out

but nothing seemed

to express a solution

finally we stopped

for a moment

to rest and recoup

in our moment

of need, a light


giving us new hope

deep within

we knew to follow

it guided us to

safety and renewed hope

20 Percent Chance

Last night I watched

The weather forecast
Seeing two separate
Ones, both saying
Chance for rain,
Both said unlikely

But somehow I
Knew we would

During the night
Picturing the full moon
With my camera
No clouds in sight
I thought well maybe
No rain would come
In the morning, I
Saw some dark
Scattered clouds
And checked the weather
Only 20 percent chance
In the early afternoon
Starting to hear some
Rumbles and tricklings
Only 20 percent chance
The sky darkened
Droplets became more
And more and now
I knew one hundred
Percent chance of rain
Pouring hard now
The weather still says
20 percent chance

Rainy Day Joyneys

Scene Note: A Stack of books
sit by the window.
Raining outside with
a beautiful view of
trees and beyond.
Rainy day travels
Exploring joyneys
Within, remembering
Days of youth
Filled with flare
A smile appears
When crystals
Become rainbow – makers
A precious doll
Brings comfort
To one who brought
Joy to so many
The petty quarrels
Sisters have becoming
Full fledged friends
The joyneys we have
Both within and about …by Pauline Harris

Journey To The Woods And Beyond

arrived here-at a new adventure-many anxious-me, I am just quiet-some are given maps-some have guides-I announce I want to get lost and to find my own way-laughs are heard out loud-quiet whispers of let us help her get lost, but not find her-a lil voice says all will be okay- the adventure awaits-I walk deep within the forest- past the pool and creek- hearing no one about me-I realize I am lost, but somehow I feel alright- I look down at the path where I thought I came from-nothing there-I focus on the tools at hand- a needle and a leaf-a compass, some water and a bit of energy bars- assuring myself, I check my bearings- the voice says to go this way-I follow-each time in doubt, I listen-and the voice guides me-a short time later-after seeing some amazing creatures and plants-I return to the starting area-only to find out-some who had maps and guides-have not made it back-and there was such a look of surprise-when I showed up…I am grateful for that voice who guided me-may the voice continue to guide me along my many paths in life~Pauline Harris

A Storm Approaches

A slight breeze…

attempts to brush…

against my arm…

It picks up..

Rustling the waves…

Grass swaying…

My gaze turns…

Seeing the strong clouds…


engulfing all around…

blanketing the whole sky…

something wavers…

I feel the winds…

a strong storm develops…

arousing feelings…


I had so wanted…

to go for a swim…

but now…

the beach is not…

so inviting, as I once…

perceived it to be…

trembling with each…

vibration from both…

the waves…

and winds…

I shake with wonder…

out of the reaches…

a crash of light..

awakens …

the tingles in my skin…

I see the massive…

lightening strikes…

my heart trembles…

I gasp…

as one comes…

so close…

missing all around…

but so much shaken…

as if from a dream…

I awaken…

and realize…

life endures

The River Runs On

Trinkles glide
Down the flowing
Came into focus
The river
Actively diverged
Making new paths
Continuing on
Changes may come
The river
Moves forward
A shaken rumble
May change
The pathway
The river
Travels onward
Gliding over
Many detours
And triumphs
The river
Carries along the banks
Sometimes changing
The river’s
To go over
Or drying up
The river
Travels along
Changes happen
The river
Ventures forward
