This is Why I like you…

This is why I like you…

let me *say* the ways you

make life more wonderful…

Sometimes when we are feeling sad,

we need to know that we are important to another…

‘n how we are important to another…

but sometimes just a hug will do just fine…



Lilac Lady

(Note: written with a picture of lady surrounded by purple blossoms in a garden setting)
by Pauline Harris
As I approached
I noticed her gaze
She looked right through me
With eyes like ice
I knew her not
But greeted her still
She gave me a look 
I knew not what she wanted 
I begged her to stay
But the words did not relay
Her voice came out
As if a bird sang
Listening deeply, I began to sleep
Gone from this world
And onto the next
Her melody brisked me far away
Only to hope to return one day
Sweet Lilac Lady
Was a mystical lady indeed

Invisible or Visible or Both

One day while walking
I came upon a bunch
Of overgrown bushes
Determined to continue
I looked around for
A solution to get through
An opening did appear
And I found myself
Lost in a labyrinth
Or so I thought
Because the paths
Lead this way and that
Some passages blocked
Other ways appeared
To lead to no where
I persisted and found an out
The way through became clear
Overjoyed, I carried on
Once on the other side
I found a mountain high
Climbing it to see
The joyney was meant for me
Many ways to and from
But only one, just one
Showed me who I would become
And there is the faith I see
For it gave me love unbound
And to this I am grateful
Thanks those who shared
In this joyney side by side
For sometimes it is lonely
On the paths and we seem lost
Only to be found later
More complete and more at peace
All thanks to the joyney
We walked side by side

The Drumming Circle

The sound of the flute in the distance

Illuminating and inviting

To be here and now present



A peaceful calm

Feeling centered

In this present moment

Resting eyes



By the tapping



Are the sounds I hear

As the drums are played


Lost in the sounds

Taken faraway

To distant times

Back to the past

Where bison roamed


And without borders

Roaming the lands

Grazing and playing


And then the music stopped

Gone are those visions

Of times long since past

But a lingering feeling exists

Engulfed in the joys

Brought back with me

By Pauline Harris

Gentle Reminders 


Tenderly lying in the sand
Looking up and out
Seeing the stars
Light up the night sky
Listening to distant echoes
Of thoughts and pains
Long since past away

Stopping for a moment
To refocus my thoughts

Twinkling sparkles stammer forward
Bringing whispers of joy and laughter
Spirit rising from the depths
No longer confined and not seeing light
Love sprinkled onto my heart
And awakened my mind to see beyond
For there is just foreverness to share
The loving presence found within

By Pauline Harris


I want you to know
A secret about you
You are important
You do have value
Your smile is one
Of the greatest gifts
To give to another
And by the way
Thank you for
By Pauline Harris

Cuddle Up

Some blankets
Are calling out
My name to
Come hither
Warmth Within
Cuddle Up
My friend
Cuddle Up
