feliz ano nuevo

can we turn the page to a better age
one rule by harmony and trust,
not by greed and lust?
can we open hearts to let the goodness in,
stand by those we love, through the thick and the thin?
will all living creatures be safe and happy then...a little wish for 2010 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ all my love to you and a wonderful new year

i hear the wind

i hear the wind
so harsh and loud
like words one
cannot rescind
lost in an
angry cloud

amen-ds

those who discriminate out of fear
look at the heartbreak you have
caused here
lives lost, lives missed
tears on faces...
that were once kissed
how can you do this?
what, can't you see
these are living creatures
just like you and me?
where is your heart
did you lose it
or throw it away
did you not choose it
you have gone the wrong way
open your eyes, find your soul
with anger and ugly
you can never be whole
to take another life,
to cause such
suffering and pain
is morally unconscionable
and quite frankly, insane

solstice

the snow softly filled the mountain clearing.
all living creatures knew god was nearing.
the twinkling sunshine spilled its rays,
on snow so white, where quietly it lays.
a tiny rustling in the trees,
their branches hustling to share the breeze.

wishing one and all some holiday bliss. with dreams come true and a mistletoe kiss♥

will you

Will you walk in my garden
Our hands to hold
Will we never be parting
If we grow very old
Will you stay with me
As bad arises
Life writes its own rules
Some with nasty surprises
When the sun no longer
Smiles on my face
Will your love be stronger
As I dream in your
Embrace?

hunters

hunters, what do you see at the end of your gun?
a terrified animal? do you call that fun?
i do not think you would if the tables were turned,
so do think about it, something that should be learned.
if we do not treat others as we wish to be treated,
all the good that we yearn for will be sadly defeated.

mantra

every day i wake up on this earth
i greet each breath with a feeling of mirth
do not take for granted
internally chanted

chronology

listen carefully u.s. of a.
you cannot throw older people away.
if you are careful, and luck works for you,
perhaps you will find yourself older too.
then will you put the lid on your own garbage can
somehow i don't think so, man!!!!

ayuda

on this chilly, wintry, blustery night,
i close my eyes, so very tight.
i think of those so all alone.
exposed and hungry, to the bone.
my heart will mend,
when the suffering ends

snow caps

i opened my eyes to a crispy snowy white,
that blanketed us over, during the long chilly night.
warm smile awakened in sweet morning glow,
love for granted never taken, in hope it will grow.

lessons learn-ed

parents teach your kids not to cause pain,
it is happening over and over again.
teach them it is wrong, that all creatures have feelings.
that their hearts should be strong, defy any such dealings.
to value all living souls as though they are theirs,
to become a person whole, one who truly does care.

dissolution

another day inches quietly by,
and here i sit, always wondering why.
in life there is really a simple solution:
people stop being cruel, stop the dissolution.
of that which should be best in the human race,
kindness and heart. to make this world a better place

sparkle

the snowflakes twinkled, dancing lights,
wind caressing through the night.
trees bowed forward as if in prayer,
moonlight embraces everywhere.
in the end the mirror reflects what lives in side our soul. we never have to genuflect with hearts as pure as gold

how?

how would you feel, if you were discarded,
no longer useful, left brokenhearted?
how would you feel, if it was too late,
your person was gone, noone stepped up to the plate?
there is something quite wrong with a society,
whose compassion is gone, but plays at some piety:(

tis the season

this holiday season
here is hoping that reason
trumps insanity
and fur based vanity.
here is hoping for peace,
that all conflicts cease,
that children and pets,
warmth and love they get.
that humans open their eyes,
to the helpless ones cries.
is this asking to much?
i hate to think such

revolv-o-lution

the world would be a much better place,
if people gave each other space,
to do the things to make the world evolve,
not thinking that about themselves it revolves

one two

One two you stepped on my shoe
Three four don’t come to my door
Five six I know all your tricks
Seven eight too little too late

i am a stray

i am a scared, lonely stray.
sometimes when help comes, i run away.
what else can you expect me to do?
when not all people are as nice as you.
i want so to trust but experience has shown,
that i really must be out on my own.
if you should catch me, please be kind,
i so want to leave the cruel past behind

holidaze 2

as the holidays draw near,
we think of those that we hold dear
the ones we kiss, the ones we've lost.
the ones we miss, the ones we tossed.
we reflect on troubles that we had
however it was, it was not that bad.
we have food, a bed, a place to sit,
where we can rest, when we see fit.
not out in the cold, lonely scared shaking.
not knowing the next move to be taking

see like

there is a world out there, gentle and sweet.
much more than the concrete under your feet.
there is world out there, feral and wild,
for all to see, through the eyes of the child,
you did not leave behind,
that child still lives deep inside your mind.
let your heart be free, see like the animals see

losted

walk me to where all life begins
my legs are tired, the air is thin.
i am so worn from battling the night
i am lost, i cannot find the light.
take me in a direction clear
hold me close, set me free from fear .

the dream of the dolphin

The dream of the dolphin
is to swim free
Unmolested by humanity
To glide under water
Leap into the sky
Revel in ocean beauty
Each day that goes by

what lies

what lies out there, outside of the box?
a lush green jungle, a pile of rocks?
a messed up tangle of what could've been,
with promises dangled, by words ever thin.
or a world wide open with chances to grow.
if one doesn't go out there, one will never know

gift unwrapped

tis the holiday season
gifts given to all
please dont let
our innocent animals
take the fall
cute puppies kittens
when they are small
callous owners bring
to shelters
if they mess in the hall
an animal is for a lifetime
not a season or so
given in haste
and the first gift to go

special

i am blind but i can see
all the love you have for me.
i am deaf but i can hear
everytime that you are near.
handicapped oh no, not i,
as long as you don't say goodbye.
special needs are special indeed

truthenasia

i don't i don't i don't want to die,
the little dogs long, wailing cry.
i have so much love inside my heart,
in your life i could be the best part.
take that needle away from my face.
i did nothing wrong, why am i in this place?

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
