Moments in Nature

Moments in Nature
By Pauline Harris

Around the early
Of this year
Much was dry
Not much water
In the rivers
Or the ponds
Harsh dryness
Lead to some
Wild burns
And waters
Flowing from
Northern rivers
Leading the lilies
In the pond
To mature
Out of the mud
The eagles building nests
Their young eager to fly
Soaring way up high
A rare sighting
Some warn signs
Of trouble on horizon
Others detour
To a different route
All seeing only glimpses
Of the wonderment
The world has to share
Grateful for each moment
And the connections
We all share


By Pauline Harris

Source of life
Pure H2O

Formed in the sky
Clouds bring rain, snow,
Hail, sleet, or other forms

As water comes down
To the ground
Enriching the soil
Making crops grow
Nourishing the soul

As the rain comes down
Filling the rivers
Capping snow on top
Of the mountains
Draining into the oceans
Circulating every drop
The water, bringer of life
Flowing through the world
And quenching our thirst
Water, bringer of life
Clenses our bodies
Both within and out
Water is our source for life

Water Flowing over Pebble Stones

Water flows over pebbles
Reaching out to grasp
And yet keeps moving on

Waves of Life

Waves of Life
By Pauline Harris

Visiting the waves
At the edge
Of the beach

Doors seem to be
Opening up
Holding mysteries
Yet to unfold

Attempting to listen
As silently in reflection

The onward sweep
Captures my heart
Swooping within
The depths of the waves
Swirled around
Encompassing me fully
Immersed in love

Fully developed
In knowing
And now

All powerful
Waves of love
Teach me
Each moment

To move forward
Ripples encircle
The Spirit above
The Elements of Earth
And how we respond
Given to the waves
As they guide us
All with each motion
And always
Our souls
