Sing Blue Bird, Sing 


I asked you to play
A game called life
There are what may see
As winners and loosers
But I am here to say
We all win, if anyone wins
Sure the misconception shows
When some may take much more
Without giving back tenfold
And some may hinder
The whispers of the facts

Knowing my dream is valid,
As is yours…we can
Together make this place
Pleasant for all
But it is working together
Not for oneself

Each of us deserves respect
Each of needs some time of rest
A good nutritional meal
A place to call home
And a voice to sing

For in singing that song
Our dream comes alive
Harmony ensues
Some outliers creating sparkles

Bluebird sing our song
And help along the joyney
For we are here all
Living one day to another
Creating a world together

Water not too deep
Laying down
Just resting
Only sounds
Of water gurgling
Closing eyes
Mind calmly
Focuses upon
My breathing
In and out
Slowly in
Breathing out
Feet tingle
Legs at rest
Arms and chest
Healing vibes
Waves wake me
Momentary gasps
Regain focus
Stretch out
Each toe
And finger
Hand and foot
Twist and turn
Dive into the water
Glide up refreshed
For what is to come
Hope remains alive
By Pauline Harris

Inspire a Life, Instead

Sometimes I just want to shout
But all that comes out is a whisper
So many people are important
And yet others bring them down
Does one feel stronger or more powerful
Bringing others down, or is it something else
They feel so small and want others to join in
Whichever the case, why not inspire
Allow others to shine and not bind
Keep hope alive and align with love
Never leave others behind
Or dig their graves
Bringing loving light through grace
Allows us all to elevate our world
To find new beginnings
And complete a quilted path or two
For no one alive has done
This life alone…thanks to all who care
And share in becoming a team
Gratitude and blessings
Upon each joyney through life
By Pauline Harris

Different Perspective

A lorry on its normal route
Driving up and down
The metroway
Passed the forest
And by the canals
Carrying on

A shiny glimmer
Appears brightly
The sun glared at it
And made its impression

Here was something new
To take one off the journey
And gaze upon this find

A shiny new penny
Had fallen out of the hands
Of a child passing by
Allowing others to look
And see something new

And maybe one day
For someone to pick
Up the penny
And pass on the joy
Pass on the joy
Found with the shiny penny
Lost and found

Unwanted Package


Rented object
Desired to be
Returned to owner
Stormy weather
Creates unease
Step inside shop
Inquired within
Gentle music
Sooths the soul
Into believing more
Innocently answering
Questions, but
An uneasy feeling
Comes as lightning strikes
Thunderous rain ensues
Both outdoors and within
More people join in
The continous questioning
The door opens
And freedom is taken
Alone in the storm
Walking to the car
And realising all
That was lost
In those short moments
Innocent, no more
Potential customer
No longer interested
As being treated
Like the unwanted package
Doesn’t suit me
By Pauline Harris

Unraveling Quilt

Taking time to choose
The right fabrics
Colour matching
All with the threads
Making decisions
On which pattern
Cutting and trimming
Sewing pieces together
Forming what is to be
A perfect gift
For a loved one
Only to discover
The quilt began
To unravel
Due to a troubled heart
Ripping the seams
Tearing apart
What was once
A beautiful piece of artwork
Unraveling the very quilt
That took time and energy
To make and express
The love from those involved
Leaving so many pieces
By Pauline Harris

Locked in a Corner

Invited to join in
I went willingly
As the invitation
Was rare to say the least
Following my friends
To a secret entrance
Waking in steps
One after another
Loosing sense
Of time and place
Lost in array of nuances
The drinks, the games
And now, alone
Locked inside
With no place to go
Yelling and screaming
To be let go
My voice is no longer
Weeping tears
Wanting, desiring someone
Anyone to hear
My whisper of love
Calls out strongly
Does anyone hear?
A crack of light
Shines so brightly
Awakening my grasp
I am free at last
