save the frog day april 30 2016

your world is busy
fast paced and loud.
running to catch
up with your lives
and whatever your crowd.
but in the middle of this
far and near,
we frogs and amphibians
are starting to disappear.
the croaks and the ribbits
the folklore you created...
without your help
to extinction we are
we are important to
your world
as you are to we.
so step up to the
lily pad plate
and join the

thank you.

love is

♥love is the power that never dies
that never says never
that always tries.
love is the power
we wish all knew
love is what
makes our deepest


dancing rain
do drops
a magical leaf lichen.....
who knew?

pink colorsplash

sometimes life feels like
a pink colorsplash
a bit of this
and of that,
a dash.

the power we see

the power we see
comes from behind
the eyes,
that see it.

at what you are shown,
or do you look away...
with something
to say.

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
