she lives her life in unaware

she lives her life in
tit for tat.
payback mode.
the years and days
she devoted to this
the people she hurt.
and when the tally
is over and
queens botanical garden
when it is time
to see who she
really hurt most...
she is number one.

from this view

was look with "out"
for a while.
and from within

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
