The Stars Above

The Stars Above
By Pauline Harris

A roaring sound
Comes from the distance
Closer it nears
Deafening to ears
Go outside to see
What is it to be
Two jets whoosh by
Seemingly very close
Almost touching
The treetops
Watching as the lights
Fade into the distant
Another one creeps up
And disappears
Like the others
Into the glow
Of the night sky
The stars above
Glistening sparkles
Coming forth to greet
All who are willing
Inspiring many
As lights streak nearby
Guiding some into paths
Of adventures in dreams
And in life itself
Captivated by the glow
First from the jets
And now the stars
Light illumines the soul
For us to carry on

Night Then Light

Night Then Light
By Pauline Harris

Time had come
To bid good night 
As we all hid
In our shelters 
And under cover 
Taking comfort 
In some delights
The warmth
Of a blanket 
Nestling us
A joy to behold
Resting well 
For in the dark
Whispers may come
In a dreamlike state
Showing delights
Of events yet to become

As day light springs forth
Eyes begin to waken
No more captive
Hence forth found
Lovingly cared for
With a grace filling
The world with this energy 
If we can only listen 
To the beating heart
Of the whispering winds
Take heart in this ever-
Loving joy of spirit 
With love all is possible

In A Dream

In a Dream
by Pauline Harris

As I slept
A vision appeared
Set me on the doorstep
Of what was to be
And what had been

All came clear
When I looked 
Beyond what I could see
With visions of light
Appearing 
To seem
Just right

But hold on tight
There were multitudes
Of every being
And every source of time
All living together
No separation
None departed

An energy of joy
All enclosed
And represented here
A bliss like none other
And all gathered
Without limitations
Peaceful solitude
All working as one
Oneness and whole
Captured in love
Easily recognized 
By heartsmilez
Shared with all

Awakened later
The love carried on
And shared 
In moments of joy
Graciously forwards

Inviting Hand From Death …

<This poem was written in reference to a photo depicting ‘Death reaching out to a person who was sitting under a tree in a forest area’>
 
 
Sitting alone under the great tree
Pondering about life and it’s treated of me
Searching for answers that are not to be
Daydreaming of days past by
Longing for something to clench at
Idealizing my future plans with dreams
Of granduer. Only to be returned to
A lowly feeling with a vision appearing out of no where
Dark shadows tempting and alluring me
Invitingly presents a hand stretched out
Giving me a chance at something different
Here is a gift of the everlasting life, free to take
No more anger or pain, hardships disappeared
 
Only joy and love remain
Grasp this hand and be set free
By Pauline Harris

Peddle Stool

Upon arrival, I noticed
Little things
Luxuries given
Really forced upon me
Liking the feelings, at first
A tiny voice
Shouted ‘Be cautious’
Unaccustomed
To the attention
I enjoyed it
Engulfing me
In clouds of illusion
And then suddenly
The door swung open
And there, I saw
The depths
The distance
From reality
I had been placed
No more illusions
Of grandeur
For I knew
True happiness
Was not there
But for my own
Choice in keeping
By Pauline Harris

Gated Path

Walking along
Making choices
For this and that
Some paths chosen
Strictly one way
Rules broken by authority
Breaking silence
Holding fast to love
Creating joyous moments
Echoing whispers
May appear from
Foggy mist
Talks to settle
Tormented souls
With no place to hide
Guided, as if to safety
Forged in a dream
A place no one hears
The screams to call
For love once more
By Pauline Harris

Blue Glass Sphere Tied

Seashore shops carried these special items
Seeing some on ships, in houses
Odd shaped objects, spherical and blue
Greenish blue like the moving ocean
And the cords tied just so
Never really finding out their uses
Just found beauty in gazing upon
The spherical green-blue glass
With tied strings attached. ..
