a safe, warm place
sweet, loving hands
food and toys to play
would be so grand.
we do not ask for
more than we
can give.
love is what we are
made of...
and we all need love
to live.

please rescue, adopt and open your hearts and homes to ones so in need
and so alone.

thank you♥

waste me not

waste me not the
moments, precious
relegated by time
and delegated by
that which i do not

the waters

the waters we seek
to nourish those parts
of ourselves
parched by the knowledge
and experience perhaps
we did not
wish for.

but for the grace

as this season begins
let us spread the joy
far and near
and keep it going
throughout the year.
we pray for peace
to somehow prevail
and that sanity
goes to the head
of the trail.
so kiss those you love
and hold them dear
where but for the grace
we would all
not be here.

the walls and barricades

the walls and barricades
behind which
we hide
lock us in
more than they
lock others

pink pretty sunsets

pink pretty sunset
cozy mountains 
blanket for 
the soul.

parrots for peace

parrots for peace.
no war,
no more.
no hate.
for love
we wait.
before it
is too late.

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
