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

One Orchid

An exciting day
Was planned 
For each to see
What we could 
Discover

Something unusual 
Was out there to find

A field full of poppies 
Was where I ran
Far into to hide

To find some peace
And solitude

Only to discover
Amungst the red
Red poppies 
Was a secret
Visitor

An solitary orchid
Peaking up
As if to say hi

I left that field 
Feeling a joy
Unmeasureable

Thinking backĀ 
I wander did anyone
Else ever discover
The orchid among the poppies

Rocky Roads in Life

There will always be rocks
In our pathway 
Through our joyney 
However it is up to us
Whether those rocks
Make us stumble 
Or fall 
Or learned to walk
Learn to create
A new vision 
Of what the world
Is to be with
All the pebbles
Becoming a world
For all of us 
To thrive and be alive
Blessings to us all

Finding A Path

In finding our own way:

Each of us has lived lives differently.

Even twins have differences.

Our paths may connect on so many levels,

but our own path is ours alone.

It is wonderful to find others

to connect with along the way.

Those connections make life worth living.

Universal Idea

stop…STOP…think…Think about what impact on others your actions n words on them…and what impact these words n actions have on you…the golden rule is universal…do things to others as you would have them do to you ~pharris2011

Two Views Become One

This poem is in response to a post of two photos taken by a friend. ..one photo is of a calm lake with clouds over the sun, the other photo is of a lake with ripples in it and the sun is clearly visible.

Two Views Become One
By Pauline Harris

Sitting by the lake
I gaze out to see
What the view is
Clouds wave
Up in the air
With calm waters
Wishing the clouds
To disburse
I close my eyes
And whosh
The wind blows
Opening my eyes
I see the gentle
Waters gone
The clouds swept away
Sun is shining brightly
And ripples
Where calm was
In my waters

And so is life
Until we find
That each moment
Is a blessing
Unto itself
Finding joy
And sharing
To make this world
Better for all
Who dwell here
Together we can

Gratefulness

Gratefulness for all those who have touched my life and whose lives I have touched. We do not always know we may made someone’s day just with a smile or a wave hello. Or maybe we were there when someone needed another to talk to or just be a presence in their life. Thank you all…whether we have met in person or not…somehow, we need each other (and we may not always know the impact we have made on another). Thank you for being you.~pharris2012
