When Angels Sing

Silently the hush
Upon the world
Did take part
In cleansing ears
Making room for
Those voices
So peacefully clear
All who desired
Were able to hear
The songs sung
By the angels
Basking in joy
Spreading light
To one and all
Listen closely
Love is spreading here

Ode To ‘The Canterville Ghost’

(Inspiration ‘The Canterville Ghost’ by Oscar Wilde)
 
There upon opening
The book led me
Deep inside to inquire within
The words seem
To read by themselves
The story set out
Full of mystery, suspense
Innocent and yet worldly
 
Entranced, I read on
A girl to discover
A long forgotten
Ghostly presence
Would bring her
To a new level
Of understanding
 
Forgiveness
Trust
Friendship
And Love
Here was this story
Forgotten until
A bonding came forth
To bear fruit
On an unbearan tree
And tears and words
Would soon set
‘The Canteville Ghost’ free.

Moments Into Blindness

One day many moons ago,

I awoke and could not see

Darkness and a fuzzy haze

Was all my eyes could focus upon

The scare had stirred up emotions

Closing my eyes helped

Feeling around for some bearings

Allowing my body to recover

From the shock of the moment

Breathing deeply in and out

I knew somehow, I was going no where

In need of some answers, but rest first

I found my way through the room

To a place I could rest my head

Pulling the covers up

Comfortable, I took a nap

Awakening, I opened my eyes

Slowly and discovered

I could see again

But the sense of blindness

Has lingered on

Old Answers

 
Many moons have past
Since the writings
Wise and concise
Foretold of questions
Yet to be asked
Voices not born
Lore telling truths
Many would deny
Secrets within
Unifying moments
Would bring unity
And understanding
There are many
In one, but only if
And a big if
We recognized
Our right to carry on
Inspiring others
To find joy
Within the wisdom
Written so long ago
~by Pauline Harris

Words Inspired

(Inspired by a painting of a transformation from a book to butterflies)
Calm day brought to us
After many hectic ones
Focus changed
Challenges accepted
Words did appear
As figments once
Dreamt about
Writings on the wall
Inside my head
Filtered out
With hand, pen, and paper
Here written words
Floating into flutterbies
Forever inspiring others
By Pauline Harris

Inspiration In The Air

Amazing world of wonder

we inspire on another

even when things look down

and grey/gray

there is a light,

a love of life

reaching out to each of us

may just be a glimmer

may just be a whisper

Inspiration is around the corner

Seek the light

the love…

Illumination will come…

Enjoy and spread the joy.

…updated version follows:

OUT of the darkness

Cracks may appear

To form obstacles

Only to get in the way

Glimmers of inspiration

Creep into view

Bringing a Fierce Love

Intense fires

Enlightening my soul

Empowering me

To be a true force

For Good

As guided by

The ONE True LOVE

by Pauline Harris

Step Aside

Step Aside
 
Attempting to connect
Tightly grasp
Thin air awaits
Venture a walk
Too cold, too hot
Whispers in winds
Just not right now
Look up for guidance
Swiveling stars
With smoky mirrors
Asked to follow
No clear direction
Answers always
In flux
Fluid perspectives
Cracks lead on
New old translations
Rivers of joy found
Within the pages
Written ages past
Step aside
To allow
Love unbounded
Free to carry on
