Her Daydream

 
Her eyes gazed over
To look yonder
Nothing in particular
To see beyond
But a reflection
Of days to ponder
Past gone by
Memories linger
Waves collapsed
In the mind
As she thinks back
Reflections of pathways
Seem to creep by
Similarities in some
Others purely unique
Conquests shared
Trophies long since faded
Connections grew
To complete networks
A force within awakened
Sparking a new revelation
Creating joy for all
Who beaconed nearby
Fostering new life
And new growth
Through collaboration
And enrichment
Via creative
And wonderment
She returned with a smile
To share with those who care

Song Of Mine

Silently humming
A tune stuck
In my head
Bringing many smiles
Of joy felt
From seeing glimpses
Memories shown within
Keeping the mind alive
Focused upon
The moment is here
Celebrate the joyney

Blue Glass Sphere Tied

Seashore shops carried these special items
Seeing some on ships, in houses
Odd shaped objects, spherical and blue
Greenish blue like the moving ocean
And the cords tied just so
Never really finding out their uses
Just found beauty in gazing upon
The spherical green-blue glass
With tied strings attached. ..

Leaves of Motion

Each time daylight brings an interlude
Swaying in all sorts of directions
At first guided by changing winds
However always falling as nature intended
Recycling life patterns amongst dying leaves
Making way for progression taking flight
Distant memories don’t recall forewarned futures/past
Momentary glimpses puzzling all perspective onlookers
Tears from heaven whisper last rites
Carefully treading to spread respectful intrigue
Stating ‘this, too, will pass’
…by Pauline Harris

Step Aside

(Inspiration:  a photo of a broken stainglass window with trees in the background)

Out walking through the forest trees
Stumbling upon a massive mansion
Ruined years ago, broken glass everywhere
Stained glass panels still presenting beauty
Whispering winds tell of days gone by
Eleborate dinners and parties
Music, poetry, festive venues
Merriment, joyful dancing
Splendor at its finest

Until one dreadful fire
Took all the wonder
Of what once was away
Now just echoes
And ghostly visions
Bringing to light
The ruins to explore
Both in body and mind
…by Pauline Harris

Smiling Wings Speak…In Riddles

Smiling wings speak
In riddles
Only some may get
The answer, but do
They get the meaning.
Joy and Laughter
Was shared
Once a friend
Came to be
So much more.
Long time has passed.
You are gone,
But you live on
In the memories
And smiles
Of those you
Touched with your life.
Live on, dear friend.
Share those smiles.
And thank you,
for sharing yours.

2days

2days

the water ripples
clouds form
overhead
a calming feeling
fast approaches
as sea gulls
swoop down
a fish jumps up
not caught yet
baby tadpoles
swim making ripples
rippling water
under the boardwalk
as I walk
over the water

trees masquerading
as signs
say turn back
bridge closed ahead
expect heavy traffic
questioning
where is the heavy traffic
coming from
if bridge up ahead is closed
instead
I walk on
a mission I am on
to capture
that one
one glimpse of
something intrigues me
I look for cars
to make sure I am safe
on I go and
find a place
plenty of trees
and powerlines too
looking up
moss reaching down
rest I must
observe I will

driving around
looking for this
or that
find another
memory
not lost
but found
and shared by another
sharing stories
of long since past
connections
and smiles
a great feeling
made

alas the days
are past
along with
something more
but the
connection
oh yeah, the
connection
is living on strong
gratitude
for the 2days
may they bring
more connections
