Unslumping

Life has a roller coaster feeling
Slow to start out, learning new things
Taking small steps leading to bigger ones
Giant leaps up to the top
Quickly tumbling downward
Racing heart jumping all about
Confusing the mind 
Which direction is the right one to take
Some encourage going this way
But insecurity tells us ‘no’
Waiting for a sign, allowing the moment to speak
A rainbow does appear
Shining a light for us to follow
This way to get unstuck
And soon joy does follow us

Notre Dame

Notre Dame 
A poem by Pauline Harris

The introduction was simple 
A hunchback man and a cathedral 
Songs were sung
People were helped
Some fears realized
And peace found
Within the walls
Where the Rose Window
Shined in glory
Grace befell upon all

Later on I began to see
The Gargoyles watching
Keeping the city safe
The angels and saints
Help to keep the watch
Peaceful in grace and song

During my visit
The reality awoke in me
In the distance on a canal boat
I saw the steeple and arches
As the boat moved closer
There were areas under repair
My heart sank some
As the outward beauty 
Was not for me to see

And then the walk to the front
Lots of people gathered 
Here and there, many excited
Just as much as me
Some were praying

The great Rose Window 
Up way up high
Dim on this side 
As the rains came down
Determined I pressed on
Through the archway of the door
I am in awe and take a deep breath

Artwork everywhere 
Statues, paintings, relics,
Carvings all detailing stories
Loads of people 
All wanting to take in this moment

And I turned my head
To see my heart leap 
My joyney now complete 
As the Rose Window shown
The richness of light
And blessed us all with the sight

Decades have passed
Since that one day
A fire struck the Cathedral 
Loosing it’s steeple
And much of the structure

But there is spirit 
That has been expressed
Although now in ashes
Wonderment will arise
Becoming compassionate love
Bringing the world together 
With grace, hope, and joy

Surprise Open Doors

Sometimes we get a lil glimmer

Of connecting with another…

Then the door slams in our face…

We try to say to our selves it was

A good connection, they will remember us…

Then again, why did they slam the door

In our face when all we gave them was a hug…

Trying so hard to keep the feeling of

The connection flowing, even with a sore nose.

The connection is the most important thing to keep our eye on.

As we make our way onto another door.

Formation of Life

Many ages ago the formation began…

With a sparkling within a sense of wonder…

Full of life giving grace, the sense of renewal took fold…

Glimpses of what to come floating within the stars…

Showering down to the earth…

A lil sparkle of love grows…

And ignites past the darkness…

Ppast the hurt…Past the past…

Stepping towards the future…

Shinning brightly…and bam…

Here is me…a lil diamond glowing…

Exams of Our Lives

We do each live different lives
So true for someone to judge
And yet no one has all answers
Instead of tearing each down
Why not inspire, teach, assist 
Share the joyney with love 
Forget about the hatefulness
Embrace the whole human race
By Pauline Harris

In Days To Come

In Days to come
There are many truths

Foretold in the writings

Of ages past
Within these words

Are general shouts

Sounding of advice

Only the reader

Can decipher

What one will believe

As what is to come

Although what will be

Will become reality~Pauline Harris

One Page of Life

One Page of Life
By Pauline Harris

Each of us
Are writing
Our own story

We learn 
And inspire 
We create
And exist

Some choose
To do evils
Using power
To create
Their ideals

Some create
While valuing 
Traditions
Of ancient times

Some create
By surviving 
Day to day

Some have
Pleasures
Others 
May never see

Some teach
And inspire
Others
To achieve 
Humility 
And gratitude

All of us
On the path
We create
With the help
Of each other
As world’s book
Is created
With all of us
In it sharing
Our lives
On this planet
