how tall

you can be so tall.
even if your are small.
takes a little belief
in yourself,
that's all.
down the street

are you

are you the center
of the world.
or is the world
the center
side of building

hold me close

hold me close
through good
and bad.
moments of joy,
and those of
at the side of the building

i miss

i miss your twinkly, happy birdie eyes
i miss your sunlit silly smile.
i miss your independent spirit,
your willingness to trust
and to be loved.
life is not the same

without all of the


little sparrow
for food.
finds cigarette
butts instead...
a metaphor
or perhaps
a metaphive...
if this continues,
who will be
maple drive

pink and yellow

pink and yellow did not
want to share the same
but when tears were cried,
they were just
one face.

on the side of the building

love in waves and torrents of color

love in waves and
torrents of color.
let the beauty of
your feelings
add joy to the
palette of
the world.
revel in the warmth
that flows from
on the way home

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
