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
Misunderstood
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
By Pauline Harris

One Guarantee

 

We are born and die
But to live our lives
How and to whom 
Do we dare share
A caring heart
Gives beyond self
Stories told
Adventures taken
Even if only in words
Or in shared experiences
Helpful hints
Laughter and tears
Gracefully guaranteed
An honest experience
Until we meet again
…by Pauline Harris

for CAD, thank you my friend

Glimpse of Light

 

My eyes are closed
Tightly shut
Not a spark
Of light to see
All alone
Deep in thought
A touch
On my shoulder
I shiver
First in fear
For I know not
Whose hand has
Dared touch me
In my moment
Of solitude
Trying to remain
Calm
Calm thoughts
Breathing in
Breathing out
Deep breathes
As I open one
Eye to see
Focusing
On the hand
I realize
The hand was
My own
I laugh
Barrels of joy
By Pauline Harris

Blessings

‘Count those Blessings
One by one’
For each of us
Needs to know
The joys in life
Help carry us through
From one day
To the future
And beyond
The knowing
And into
The shared
Love and compassion
We all cherish
One by one
Our blessings
Flow like a stream
Sharing and caring
Touching our lives
Spreading across
The planet
Making more
Memories
To share these
Blessings
One by one
Enjoy these blessings
Share these blessings
One to another
By Pauline Harris

 

inspired by the song ‘Count your blessings’

Importance of Reading

Reading is one way of passing on wisdom to others, in this respect the author is like a teacher using words of wisdom to relay to another person but the reader must be open to the words and integrate them into their own life like any lesson in life makes one a better person.

Birth of …

An idea pops
Into the mind
Creating a ripple
Starting the process
Formation of pieces
Begin to transform
The notion into something
A sweet sadness washes
Over the creator
Bringing to develop
The newness
A new creation
Once formed in the head
Curiosity begins to take fold
As patience is needed
In the guiding moments
Wonders to become
A fulfilled substance
For all to relate
As the something
Is now been transformed
From idea to reality
By Pauline Harris
 
note: Rewritten from an old writing of mine:
sometimes i feel some sweet sadness wash over me… as festive fingers glide through to bring on something new… a new creation is meddling through my head… kinda curious…but am patiently awaiting…wonders to unfold one day…
