Along The Road

Travels had taken me

Far across the many miles

Rivers have rippled

In the wake of each day

Drops of love sprinkle joy

And little bits of sadness

Followed closely with comfort

Differences proven to bring

A newfound hope in today

by Pauline Harris



Hope is a wonderful instrument

to help in carrying on through life.

There is something about hope

that helps one to believe

even when no lights can be found.

Hope gives some will power

to carry on, carry on. Hugs to Hope,

as we all need some hope now and again.

Starting off in pure darkness
A spark of light began
Seemingly from no where
But to show a way
Out of the night
Beaming with delight
The heart raced
Only to discover
Words to follow
One led this way
Another that
All ending somewhere
Which path to take
Some said they went down here
Others took another one
Meanings changed with words
Growing from seeds
Laid centuries ago
Which way to know
Truth will prosper
Comforting and humbling
Choosing the joyney
Is the only option
For seeking hope
Will rise as the sunsets

To Love…Nailed It

To Love…Nailed It

You were coming out
Of the hospital doors
I was headed in
We had only just met
A few months before
A little frightened,
I was and you could tell
So you stopped to chat
And that was that
Our first real talk
You told me of this man
Who was so down and
Could not walk
You made him laugh
A week later
He walked out
Happy and free
It was then I knew
You and me were true
True friends for life
I knew then I wanted
To share joy with
The world, just
As you had shared
With me. I went into
The hospital with a
New sense all would
Be fine, because
You and I were now
And forever would
Good friends…even
Though later you did die.

Storm Explosion

Staying indoors
Was proclaimed
By media, but
I just had to see
Beautiful clouds
Called out
Vibrant colours
Once in a lifetime
I headed out
Walking along
The pier
Seeing the waves
Come so near
Heart racing
Clouds covering
Sight gone
I give into fear
Attempting to breathe
I carry on
As I must
To survive
All freedoms gone
The glorious past
No more tomorrows
The storm has taken over
No more talking
Or even thinking
All linked together
Working with no voice
No choice
Engulfed in fear
Civilization at a turning point
Voting for choice
Or relinquish control
They say study history
To no longer repeat it
Look to the writers
And to the policies
Of the time
Churning the clouds,
I look towards
What I desire…
I choose freedom
And hope the storm
Will let us all survive
…by Pauline Harris

Being Human

Being human is
Full of rules
And regulations
Do this, wear that,
Permissions to go here
Yes, these are needed,
But not differing ones
For different folks
That is not freedom
Some make money off of
Others freedoms taken away
Unjustly so.
Shooting someone
Without any law, that is horrid.
Protecting and serving,
Not shooting whoever.
And whatever happened
To ‘it takes a village’
Each of us learn and
Share with one another
Inspiring and supporting
One another… We cannot
And should not do this
Thing called life alone
We need one another
More variety makes
The whole life experience
So much worthwhile
If we loose hope,
find some spark of light.
Bring light to others.
Some may just see
the spark as a seed
and others may grow
and develop the seedling
….by Pauline Harris

Doorway In Graveyard

Guide me deep within
Tracing the pathway
To the depths
No way, but this way
Not telling whole truths
To what lies ahead
Kept secret, many stay silent
Stories may arise
Out of the depths
Of darkness
Who to believe
Reputations seem to matter
Half truths prevail
From their lips
A glimmer sparkles
Some hope remains
Strong, as this one
Knows what lies beneath
Little light shine
So bright, others may
Be guided to peace.
