a tear

a tear i shed for our father sky
of so many hues, so deep and wide
white puffy clouds, sometimes adorn
of darkening grey, lost and forlorn
and crystal blue the future to tell
a sky we thought we knew so well
a tear i shed for our oceans greenblue
what will ever become of you
haven for creatures mystical and rare
lost in statisticals, does anyone care?
a tear i shed for our rugged terrain
deserts, jungles and ice
once on an even plane
and endless torrent of salty tears
for all the animals no longer here
and those, if we are not careful
that will soon disappear
please hear my cries
so i can dry my eyes
save our earth mother
for we have no other

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
