in the haze

in the haze that sometimes
life can be.
in the maze
that serves as

if for a brief moment

if for a brief moment,
i could hold time
in my hand.
i would caress
ny botanical garden
precious second,
each breath that i took
without thinking.
holding on until..
then tenderly kiss

we never know

we never know
what really is,
until what it really
takes its
in june around the corner

his nights

the silence that is
his night,
broken by the
deafening absence
of her.

now one

for decades a life,
as friends, husband
and wife..
now one must go on,

to those once with us, who no longer remain,

we feel your loss, and it causes pain.

but we know you are in a place of peace,

with others, just like you,

whose troubles have ceased.

your tenure on earth with us never enough,

yes we go on, but at times it is rough.

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
