This Feather

Slowly dropping

From the sky

I am not sure why

A feather


A feather once

Adored and ruffled

Once completed

And whole


Falling down

To the earth

Down to the ground

Almost right there

Right in front of me


My hand reaches out

Grasping at air

Fingers spreading

Attempting to grab

But alas, nothing

Only air…not fair


As I look around

There upon the ground

Sits for all to see

The feather

Looking at me


As though to laugh

But I know in my heart

I did step down

And took the feather

Up into my hand

At last this feather

Was truly mine


Although one day

It may wilt

Or fly away

Until then

I shall cherish

This feather of mine

Angelic Kisses

Angelic Kisses
By Pauline Harris

Out of nowhere 
Did this warmth
Appear
To comfort me

Reaching deep
Within
And grabbing
At my heart

Taking away
All my fears
A deep breath
I did take

Feeling better 
With this warm
And in depth
Embrace

Calming
Comforting 
A newfound 
Sense of joy

To love, I return
And to the joyney 
Called life

Calling of the Birds

Out in the fields, he stood

Among the grassy meadows near the hills

Moon had just risen above the eclipse

Shadows approach to gain insight

Of the coming year to be

The trumpet is blown

Birds flock to the sound

Dancing in a rhythm

Only the awaken can fathom

With delight, notes echo in the distance

Seeking those who are listening

Carry on to find delight

Carry on to share wisdom

Carry on, carry on, carry on

by Pauline Harris
inspiration: a photo of a man in a field playing the trumpet with birds coming out of it.

Gratitude Whispers

There is whole opening to see the sky above…angel tears trickle down to greet me…the wind whispers sweet words of wisdom…I grab you and give you a bear hug, as I need someone close by…the sense of wonder catches my eye…I do delight in this overwhelming feeling of comfort and joy…Gratitude fills my soul~pharris2012

Basket Full of Hearts

Just a tiny hug
From me to you
Not much, but a lot
Of loving thoughts
No words could convey
The shared kindness
I wish for the world
This very day and always
By Pauline Harris

Web Play

In the fog
Of the morn
Appearing
Before
This tree 
A spider web
Encompassing 
The whole view
As you see here
By Pauline Harris

Along The Road


Travels had taken me

Far across the many miles

Rivers have rippled

In the wake of each day

Drops of love sprinkle joy

And little bits of sadness

Followed closely with comfort

Differences proven to bring

A newfound hope in today
