The Seedling

 

I sit and watch
A seedling falls
Floating with the wind
Tumbling through the air
Long since left
Birthplace behind
Guiding along
On a joyney
Of self discovery
Finding a place
To find comfort
To find nourishment
To find security
The wind may guide
But to set down roots
Is the completion
Of the mission
As growth and change
Are inevitable
Time to begin
Is now at hand
I must allow change
Now starts anew

Sing Blue Bird, Sing 

 

I asked you to play
A game called life
There are what may see
As winners and loosers
But I am here to say
We all win, if anyone wins
Sure the misconception shows
When some may take much more
Without giving back tenfold
And some may hinder
The whispers of the facts

Knowing my dream is valid,
As is yours…we can
Together make this place
Pleasant for all
But it is working together
Not for oneself

Each of us deserves respect
Each of needs some time of rest
A good nutritional meal
A place to call home
And a voice to sing

For in singing that song
Our dream comes alive
Harmony ensues
Some outliers creating sparkles

Bluebird sing our song
And help along the joyney
For we are here all
Living one day to another
Creating a world together

faraway hugs

 hugs  from afar
can warm the heart
and comfort the soul
for someone so clear
to see one has touched
more than just one’s own life
thank you for being you~pharris2011

Mystical Night

 

Standing alone
A breeze brushed
My arm
Sending shivers
Down my spine

Quickly
My attention changes
Challenged by
A new presence

A moment focusing
A tap on my shoulder
And instantly awoken
As if only a dream

Standing tall
Under the moonlight
We begin to dance
In the shadows
Of the trees

Freely swaying
And galloping
Around and around

Lost in the motions
Time forgotten
Freely laughing
Clear minutes
Of pure joy
Etascy experienced

A buzzing sound
Echoes
Gaining speed
Getting louder
My alarm wakes me

Distant memories
Of my dream dance
Dancing in the moonlight
And in the shadows
Oh, one day I shall return
Until then…just memories

adventure in life

“…and there was the time

when I danced with the wind under my feet…

I swam looking up under the water

seeing the swaying branches…

I snuggled on my bed…

I dreamed a painting into life…

I wrote a poem without knowing

the words were being written…

I got lost in the woods to find my way out…

I lost my sight than got it back…

seeing people’s mouths move

and have no idea what they are saying,

then them getting mad at me

cause I did not know what they said to me…

not being able to get up and walk…

each day holds new adventures…

some are outside waiting for us…

and others, we just seem to find”~pharris

Kindness

Gentle words of love and courage
Sacred spirit shared with all believers
Beyond words of wisdom, a notion
To carry on expressing joyful giving
Souls awakened beyond this earthly realm
Accomplishing peace everlasting. ..so it is

Floating

 

Water not too deep
Laying down
Just resting
Only sounds
Of water gurgling
Closing eyes
Mind calmly
Focuses upon
My breathing
In and out
Slowly in
Hold
Breathing out
Feet tingle
Legs at rest
Arms and chest
Peaceful
Solitude
Healing vibes
Waves wake me
Momentary gasps
Regain focus
Stretch out
Each toe
And finger
Hand and foot
Twist and turn
Dive into the water
Glide up refreshed
Reinvigorated
For what is to come
Hope remains alive
