even one...
the healing of
the world
has begun.

so loyally
as we swim
and create
our family.
our love a
to weather
what may.
together we
each brand
new day.

concrete pillowalls...garage eagles

concrete pillowalls
a nest

out there
a world
and spacial.

rose, gate and shadows

pink rose decided
that she does not
dwell behind
the gate and shadow.
but that
bask in her
sweet, fragrant

no ups no downs
no ins no outs
no games to play
no twists
no shouts.
perhaps this is

About Me

My Photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
