a bliss

every second, a lifetime
every lifetime
a moment
of
bliss
a
kiss
not
to
be
missed

honor

i honor you
for what
you do
why you do
and for
being
you.

you honor me
by
letting
m
e a part
of that which
beats inside
your  heart.

mlk

a man once had a dream
of peace and glory.
decades after he was
torn from this earth...
no peace
no glory.
if we want to honor
this hero of a man
why do we not
hear his message...
make his dream
come true
turn away from the engines
that
still rev on hate.
where is the love,
the world
cannot
wait.

forever, you dwell

forever you dwell
within those hearts
that cherish,
you will
never
perish.
you are seen by
the inner eye
of love
though not
in form
as you
rest
above.
please do not worry
about us
here still
your presence was
the brightest candle
and our hearts,
are filled.




for thoughts to gather

another day for thoughts
of love
to gather.
or rather
perhaps
to
collect each one
and with a ribbon
and bow.
share the love
with those
who need
it
so.

this is what cold looks like

what looks like cold
the icy chill
a world,
so still.

you see the world

you see the world
the world sees you
not just what you say
but what you do.
the world inside
the heart that you
carry
your needs and feelings
in peace or
at parry.
the truths you live by
the words you believe.
the lies you ignore
who do "they"
deceive.

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
