Being Human

Being human is
Full of rules
And regulations
Do this, wear that,
Permissions to go here
Yes, these are needed,
But not differing ones
For different folks
That is not freedom
Some make money off of
Others freedoms taken away
Unjustly so.
Shooting someone
Without any law, that is horrid.
Protecting and serving,
Not shooting whoever.
And whatever happened
To ‘it takes a village’
Each of us learn and
Share with one another
Inspiring and supporting
One another… We cannot
And should not do this
Thing called life alone
We need one another
More variety makes
The whole life experience
So much worthwhile
….
If we loose hope,
find some spark of light.
Bring light to others.
Some may just see
the spark as a seed
and others may grow
and develop the seedling
….by Pauline Harris

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

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

Birthday Blessings

Someone once told of this secret time of the year
In which someone has this special day, I am told
Of which they add another year to their age
And celebrate with friends and family
throughout the year a birthday celebration
like no other, for a friend like no other…
Many Birthday Blessings to you…enjoy
from Pauline Harris

wait, wait…

Wait, wait…oh look…here is a healing hug and sparkling smile…just for you…pass them along…make someone’s day…enjoy.~pharris

Searching For Calm

Here, I am

living in a storm

Water rushing

This way and that

Water for those

who have a thirst

Here, it is

Drowning others

and me…or so it seems

For those are just dreams

Drops of water

so scarce

and yet, those

complaining

so numerous

to count

Be this way

or choose this path

I often think

Of this thing called

Freedom, so many

fight for the right

to be free

And yet, we

command others

to be just the same

as others

or do the same

as others

How is this freedom?

When we teach our

young ones

Do we teach them

to think and create

or do we teach them

to just follow

and to learn

false histories

false histories are

written by the victors

with no care for

any other

The storm is

engulfing us

all

To give ourselves

love and light

we must hold back

take a moment

Breathe

Learn

Create

Give

Share our thoughts

Share our culture

Share our traditions

Respect others

And Breathe

Calm will come

~PaulineHarris
