Wise Up About Maybe

Why Not Maybe

Choices of either
Yes or No
A different path
Calls to say
Hello, I am nearby
Voices tell partly truths
Giving positive
Only on their view
Agreeing with some aspect
Persuaded not to look further
Combining is the only way
But what about maybe
Maybe seems always left behind
Never given a second thought
Discussed by those with no voices
Left silent
However maybe is used
To give a voice
To artist, writer, actor, teacher, engineer,
Creators of innovation
Seeing visions of a brighter future
For All
Instead of the few
Those few who have it all
And just want the world
Time for Maybe
Is here at hand
Our water, land, and hearts
Are devoted to Maybe
And someday Maybe
Maybe will achieve
What yes could never do
By Pauline Harris

Ancient Gaze

Ages ago, a lady of fortune
Walked upon this earth with wealth
Allowing others a glimpse of riches
As they gazed upon her eyes
Seeing the reality, she was human
Just like all of those onlookers
The noble lady carried herself gracefully
As she set out to inspire
Others to be present in living
For she had found her riches
Were not in money, her wisdom
Held the key to her success
She had learned to inspire gratitude
Graciously giving of herself granting blessings
As a token of one artist’s
Loving support of the noble lady
The artist immortalized her painting her
Two millennia later, the portrait exists
The noble lady survives gracefully painted

A Doll

Her father left on long trips
Not knowing when he would return
The young girl kept quiet
Stubborn and a bit insecure
She found it hard to make friends
Seeing the new doll she was playing with
The other girls said come and play
They all played together until
The young girl was called into dinner
The other girls said they would
Love to take care of the doll
As she saw her doll was sleeping
She let them play with her doll
After dinner, the young girl returned
To fetch her doll
But
No doll was there
Lost
Stolen
The young girl wept
Hurt
Beyond repair
She felt betrayed
No longer accepted
By the other girls
She found herself
Feeling unwanted, alone

Years passed
The young girl was now a woman
She grew to think of herself sadly
Until
Someone special came along
To saw so much beauty
Within her, it shown through
She was beautiful
For all to see
No longer saddened
Or in disarray
The young woman
Went to share
With others
The beauty within
Shining an amazing light
No matter the past
The light shines brightly
In beauty and splendor

Rain Drops Oneness

Rain Drops…

the pitter patter of

each drop reaching

from a distant

land to drop just

here and there…

something borrowed from

another time and place…

brought here

to fill our minds and bodies

with grace…the pitter patter

talks of days gone by…

and allows for newness to arrive…

bringing a sense of growth…

Oneness felt within…

together we begin…

sharing…learning…caring…

giving…inspiring…and loving

oneness anew…

hear the sound pitter patter…

listen intently pitter patter…

here we are…together

on a journey

with raindrops as

one guide to oneness.~pharris2013

Contemplative Viewfinder

Faith is like looking through the viewfinder of a camera; it helps us see differently.
