larry w,RIP

larry always dreamed so hard,yet his wishes were deluded
a man riding high, on a wild card, his self esteem denuded
the paths he took, from a position of weakness
forever waiting for that lucky streak, victory at the preakness
but he never could really get out of the starting gate
his self abusing life style the winner.
this creator of his own fate
RIP my old leather jacketed friend
45 years ago we met
but this was not how
it was supposed to end

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
