Miles Before I Wake

Scenes of life passing by
Trees and towns
People living all around
Partial glimpses into
What was thought
As ordinary
Some learning rules
Others living them
A few breaking barriers
Setting trends or standing ground
The destination unknown
Although much do speculate
And many do believe
Nothing guaranteed
Tangled promises
Joys desired
Silenced into submission
Hearts unfurled
Obedience is law
Freedom only perceived
Trains seldom stop
Long journey ahead
Miles before I wake
Searching for the destination
Scenes will disappear
Traveling through life

a joyney quote

‘blooming joy and working together to make a bouquet’~pharris2014

Joy To One

One drop
is Such
An enormous
Amount of
Love, Of Water,
Of Life. Of Breath.
Each of us
are but
One Miracle.
We, each have
the choice
to share Love,
Water, Life, Breath.
In Sharing,
We are caring
Enough to share
Those smiles
And little joys
which make life
worth living.
Remember the power
Of one drop is
The same power of one
Breath, one Life, One All.

Whispering Wind

Whispering wind calling forth~Let me in, let me in~No, says I~For deep within~I know the Truth~And you are not it~But, whispering wind continues~I can only see you are~A bringer of fear to me~This I do not want~Nor will I accept~I am free, I am free~Let me be Me,~For I know the Truth is where I want to be~Alive and Free~~~pharris2013

The Choice in the Joyney

If given directions or a recipe, do you follow it exactly as written every time or is it a guide to help you find your own way?

For me, I look at many recipes and sets of directions as guides. I make changes to suit the needs of those who gave the directions/recipe and for myself as well. But it is different for each situation. As some situations, the direct following of the directions/recipe is vital for the outcome.

I see this as freedom to pursue happiness. We all have to find our own way and purpose in life. Every which way we choose, there are mountains and valleys. Each a lesson. A step. A dance. No two paths are the same. Many of our friends and family are with us just a short while. Each with their own set of blessings to share in our joyney with us.~pharris2013

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

Enjoy the Joyney

Each of us are on our own Joyney through Life. We meet friends and family along the way who help guide and comfort us. Some obstacles may end up being great learning points. We may not always know the whats, the whens, the hows, the whys, wheres. Gratefulness and endurance will carry us on. A distant smile might brighten the lives of many unforeseen by the giver. A kind word can illuminate the whispers in the wind. Each of us has our own path to learn and do what we must…all it takes is just one thought, one dream, one step…Just One thing to begin on our Joyney through life.~pharris2013
