behind this placid
floral smile...
lives a lifetime
stretched for
many a mile.

to stop and really look
at what you see...
a treasure you might
anywhere there is an open heart

how many

how many moments of silence
will it take,
before a world of peace,
we make.

change can

change can come when
open minds, driven
by the kindness of hearts,
cause a contagion of
gentle compassion.
even reaching those
once mired in the
wrongs of
what was.

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
