when you

when you find that the source of all happiness comes from that which unites, not divides, us..when you experience that sense of commonality. which makes us all part of the human community.

when you learn that the blood of the divine runs through us all and that we are all a part of that divinity.

when you are finally free from hate, open to love and learning from those who walk a different path.

when you realize, at last, the these paths all lead to the same place and emanate from the same source.

this is when you really start to live


my feathers are ruffled
the few that remain
sometimes i very nervous
my former life was a strain.
i gots some arthritis
i old just like some of you.
but i embrace my new life
and those who embrace it,
beauty is what the heart
tells the eyes,
my humans think i am handsome
(p.s. so do i)
yes i am a bit of a ragamuffin boy,
but critters like us
can bring the most joy..
so when you goes to the shelter
to adopt a new friend.
adopt an imp-perfection
and perhaps start
a trend.

too much talk about politics
and it's all poo
I'd rather just bask in 
the sun...
how about you.

adrift, the blues

set adrift
by the blues
the void
that cannot
be filled
by little

winter reach out

winter reach out
tree savor
the flavor
of each
brand new

so silently

so silently
i think
i pray
from life's
not so
sweet woes
i run away.
in quiet time
a peaceful spot
oh life and its
forget me knots.

the sweet taste of
soon happening.

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
