Oh The Loved Ones

Oh The Loved Ones
By Pauline Harris

Somehow we met
You were walking
Out of the hospital 
Almost running 
A joyous smile
Swept across 
Your face
I was a bit
Frightful 
As surgery 
Was my mission 
You just smiled
And said hi
My nerves 
Seemed to 
Fade away
I looked at you
And saw someone 
Who was hurting 
But instead of
Dwelling
You were 
Excited 
Joyful 
In that moment 
And that was
The start
Of a short lived
Friendship 
For you died
Only a few years
Later
Bye bye bye
30 years ago
This December 
I miss your smile

I Have a Secret to Share

 

But only a few will care
My secret is rather small
And it takes no room at all
Carrying this tiny gift
Yes a gift to be given away
Somedays, I need this present
In my life and others I freely share
Holding loved ones show I care
However this amazing lip action
Can change the world one person at a time
My secret held on my face and in my heart
Is a HeartSmile…blessings on your joyney

Journey To The Woods And Beyond

arrived here-at a new adventure-many anxious-me, I am just quiet-some are given maps-some have guides-I announce I want to get lost and to find my own way-laughs are heard out loud-quiet whispers of let us help her get lost, but not find her-a lil voice says all will be okay- the adventure awaits-I walk deep within the forest- past the pool and creek- hearing no one about me-I realize I am lost, but somehow I feel alright- I look down at the path where I thought I came from-nothing there-I focus on the tools at hand- a needle and a leaf-a compass, some water and a bit of energy bars- assuring myself, I check my bearings- the voice says to go this way-I follow-each time in doubt, I listen-and the voice guides me-a short time later-after seeing some amazing creatures and plants-I return to the starting area-only to find out-some who had maps and guides-have not made it back-and there was such a look of surprise-when I showed up…I am grateful for that voice who guided me-may the voice continue to guide me along my many paths in life~Pauline Harris

Young Love

Young love.
We barely
Knew one another.
We sat there
Quietly
Giggling.
Talking
Nonsense.
Me, twirling
Your and my
Hair,
And then
Ourselves.
Mixed-up
In the motion.
Elated.
Caught
In the
Moment
Of
Forever.
Unending.
Always
Present.
Our young love.

Light Through The KeyHole

feeling the heat
coming
from the door
keyhole-
I step closer
only to realize
an eerie
presence
was about me-
creeping closer-
heading to the door-
knowing, I am not alone-
who could this be
closing in
on the door-
touching the keyhole
discovering the heat-
warm tingling
felt on top
of my skin-
needing
to know what
is on the
other side-
tempted-
my hand reaches
up towards
the handle-
twisting-
the lever-
no action-
pushing-
down-
with all-
my might-
nothing-
I scream-
in exhaustion
I think slowly-
then attempt-
to push-
the door-
only to discover-
the taste-
of freedom-
found
on the other side-
a sigh of relief
seeing-
before me-
an angel
coming-
to comfort me-
a healing hug~by Pauline Harris

The River Runs On

Trinkles glide
Down the flowing
River
Rocks
Came into focus
The river
Actively diverged
Making new paths
Continuing on
Changes may come
The river
Moves forward
A shaken rumble
May change
The pathway
The river
Travels onward
Gliding over
Many detours
And triumphs
The river
Carries along the banks
Sometimes changing
The river’s
Focus
To go over
Flooding
Or drying up
The river
Travels along
Changes happen
The river
Ventures forward
~Pauline Harris

Blessings, In Search of…

On the lookout
For the many
Blessings
Looking left
And searching right
I find a few
But fail to see
The ones brought
By you
Until I breathe
Quietly
To myself
And look deep
Within
To notice
The great joy
And grace
That appeared
When I knew
You were there
With me all the while
Such blessings
Surround us
Day by day
If only we saw
Them with open
Hearts…-by Pauline Harris
