where there is kindness.
there is love.
where there is love,
there is life!

the wisdom of the gentle mallet

the wisdom of the
gentle mallet
muted message
pastel palette.
words softly
with a
say what
is meant
and where
the messsage


we strive for peace
we strive for calm
for sweet release
a gentle balm
as storm clouds gather the fort
our wits would rather
gently comport.

at what

at what point does the concept of ethics awaken from its slumber and shout out
"i'm still here"

once upon a birdie and butterfly

a birdie happened upon
a little butterfly.
he said, oh like me
you can fly.
yes the little butterfly
we are quite alike
you and i.
then the butterfly
said goodbye.

clean the path
that i may see
from eyes
not sullied
by reason.

as she passes by

as she passes by,
little beauties

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
