Hugs Are Good

Healing hugs to all of us
For the hug can be
Paid forward to another
Frequently inspiring smiles
And friendships to follow
Blessings always…

A Light Shines ON

Be still my heart
The earth trembles
Fires spew out
From the earth’s crust
Furies of discourse roar
Strongly to threaten justice
Truth speaking in whispers
Twisted words taking lead
Smoke easing out
Poisoning all, but going unnoticed
As focus is on mirrors
Cracks do appear
Opening up as the morning star
Rises in the east
Bridging more than just friends
Bringing together hope
A light shines its way
Into the hearts of us
Everyday and everyway
With answers to end all hate
And bring poverty to an end
Delusional visions still mask
Those who only see themselves
We can prevail and making this world
A world for all, not just those who think
There are limits in a world of unending hope
Love will win, if we choose to see
With our hearts, not just our minds

Is Anyone Listening

Someone out there

is whispering…

can you hear them…

they are saying

something important…

something one person

needs to hear…

listen closely and

you might hear

them whispering…

they only whisper

because everyone

around them is yelling or

talking over them…

can you hear them…

the whisper is

in the wind… pharris 2010

Tear Or Tear

Tear Or Tear

To tear apart
Make a rip in fabric
Or paper
Torn into pieces

And a tear forms
Within the eye
Fast becoming more
Tears fall down
Crying out
Over the sadness left
After the tears became tears

And now the realization
One spelling having
Multiple meanings

A Seed

A seed can lead

to many things…

a tree…a bush…a flower…

or when implanted

into someone…

it can flourish into

something of a mystery…

only the individual

can let it grow to

develop into what

it was meant to be…

Quilt of Choices

There is a crack

in the fabric of time…

it is interlaced with choices…

sometimes our focus

is so entangled

in one of seams…

we don’t see

the potential

of the new directions

of patterns etched

into the stitches…

it is time to look

at the whole quilt of life

and see all of its potential…*pharris 2010

Gazing At a Puddle

A puddle shared a beauty

Of a tree and leaves

Shadows reflected in the world around

Appear to see trees in the ground

Only to realize the water is there

For all to see what is happening everywhere
