the sun has left, the moon walks in, slowly, cautiously, measuring each step, as if the sun, still eager to be seen, is peering over her shoulder.

the sun, smiling softly in now muted tones, leaves the sky

best friends

and when my humans say it is time for bed,

i go to sleep on my best friend's head♥

anne the elephant

anne the elephant by man tormented
without any guilt, inhuman demented
suffered in silence for most of her life
never allowed to be an elephant
just a victim of strife
now finally her story has come to light
and it is up to manKIND to do
what is right
free her from this horror, prevent
other elephants from suffering so
these wonderful creatures have feelings
they are not put on earth for show!!!!

wishes

for anne the elephant and all the patricks out there
to us you are NOT irrelevant and all of us care
we are with you in your troubles every step of the way
we are working together so all this changes one day
for those we could not help our sorrows are great
but we will focus on those we can reach
before it is too late
love and light, namaste
may kindness kiss you
each and every day

patrick...the little pitbull starved by his "owner" and thrown down garbage chute



patrick you are an inspiration,
you touch the hearts of people
in every nation
you teach us that strength
and character matter
in spite of a life that left you so shattered
we are cheering you on,
every step of the way
as you work to grow stronger

day by day ♥

roo-teen

we look at life as a routine
at times we think that is obscene
but every day our eyes can see
is another gift wrapped beautifully

eye land

there is an island in our souls
where all are healed,
all are whole
where peace and love
are the national sports
where all god's creatures
safely cavort
where man has put
the kind back in mankind..
and left cruelty and sadness,
far behind

as night's umbrella begins to unfold
nothing is young, nothing is old

i live in my own world...

for all

for all the unwanted and abused
in the world
i wish for you some loving arms
in which to be curled
a soft warm bed, gentle voices
inside your head ♥

compassion cake

i would like to bake
a compassionate cake
to create a world of giving
and less of take
where loving kindness
is the norm
not one where cruelty
attacks in swarms

m-brace

embrace the world
it is our own
it is the moral compass
of man that needs to
be honed,our time is limited
this i know all too well
it is time to restore heaven
remove the hell
no second wasted, no regrets
the battle is far from over, yet
as long as we wake up and
open our eyes,
goodness may one day
be a most welcome surprise♥

night is

night is bliss
a longed for kiss
a tender embrace
a smiling face

wolverine

wordcolorcredo

the written word,
a brush of paint,
can be heard,
and if it ain't,
a sharper hue,
a deeper tone,
a kind expression
one has to hone

pacem

as long as the sun obliges,
and the moon does not disagree
there is a world of infinite possibility♥

for knut...R.I.P. beautiful winter creature

little knut a polar bear
known around the world
loved everywhere
we followed your little steps
as you grew, and revelled in your
every action, new
then yesterday such sadness sent
you passed away, to heaven you went
but you are our white angel
in our hearts forever
wishing you were still here with us
and would leave us,NEVER ♥

a shadow

a shadow in a world
busy,bustling by
unaware if i laugh
never there
when i cry
floating like a figment
of someone' sad
imagination
quietly shouting
unheard of
indignation

in vino

deep remembrance
quiet dreams
be glad that things
are not always
what they seem

moon beams

the moon our beacon of the night

covering our world in soft grey light♥

per ceive

she knew the world
for what it was
saw through
the hype
ignored the buzz
and in this heightened
sense of aware
she found it too hard
not to stare

embrace goodness

embrace goodness, never let it go
in the end it is all that we have to show

wis dome

you are you
and i am me
we all have
the right to
disagree
but respect must be
given even in dissent
or toxic will be driven
by energies, misspent

top o the morning prayers

top o the morning
st patty's day morn
prayers for those in
japan
lost in woes and forlorn
wishing you healing
and soon, resolution
as we sit in admiration
of your strength

j'espere

and as we get ready to retire
tomorrow, what will transpire?
the heart is a vessel that can be too empty, but can never be too full ♥

prayers

let us build in our hearts
a house of worship
and a steeple
together we will
pray for the earth
and the japanese
people
to ask forgiveness
from the earth mother
every day
to please not take
our planet away
to give our species
another chance to
prove
that we have learned
from our mistakes
and forward we can move
feel the love inside you
share it whenever you can
it is only that goodness
that can save man

cosmos

what is it like out there in space
that most far away and distant place
how many worlds have lived and died
how many struggle, how many thrive
what will be our legacy
can we learn to be a planet of
harmonious "we"

kindness

kindness should not be hidden
under a rock
kindness does not own a calendar
a watch, or a clock
kindness does not age, but
it forever grows
kindness is wisdom
learning more
as it goes

as spring...

hope and joy
a new season abounds
bringing new life
and possibilities
all around ♥

mantra

another day
another chance
make kindness your partner
in this dance
love and light
namaste
spread compassion
every day

for lolita...an orca trapped by man for 39 years

i am a graceful mammal of the sea
why did this terrible thing happen to me
does anyone out there here me cry
as my aquatic sisters and brothers
languish and die
of the waters i was born
from these waters, by man
i was stolen and locked up
in this garbage can

koalalove

a new

in silent space
a planet forms
as the sunlight
nurtures,
soft and warm

heart and healing hands for japan

a union of hearts
a joining of hands
we are not apart
though we dwell
in different lands
we are with you
in spirit
we hope you
feel and hear it♥

ruleZ

life dishes it out
we have to take it
rules are made
sometimes we
break it
but live we do
and blessed we are
however near the end
for each moment,
far

if we

if we all hold hands
from our hearts
and mind
can we change the world
from cruel to kind? ♥

tremors, waves, heartbreak

for the people of japan and all those who stand under threat of great waves of destruction

namaste
love and light
as you endure
this darkest
of nights
stand tall and proud
you will persevere
you have the ♥
and support of
everyone here

my name is hobbs

you do not know me
my name is hobbs
i do not usually bother
with you human slobs
but if you feed me and
clean my box,
maybe i will not
change the locks

hobbs the cat;-D

fearless tigris

tiger
denizen of
jungles, deep
if your species
dies
the earth
shall
weep

planet blue

a little blue planet
one of many in space
orbits its sun,
staying in place
while busy upon it
life forms hustle about
each one its own planet
some shutting
others out

i am a wolf

i am a wolf and
my kind have roamed
this land
long before the
hand of man
we have seen the sun
howled in the rain
felt the sting of man's guns
as we cry out in pain
we are part of the mountains
to the earth we belong
we have power in our spirit
though our numbers
are not strong
we are one with the seasons
the light of the moon
man needs to find his
sense of reason
or we will all be gone
ethiopian wolves
too soon

spring


spring, the season of hope
and rebirth
soon to grace our planet,
earth ♥

dolphinland

this is their world
not ours to take
this is their home
not ours to break
they are our brothers
under the sea
that is the way
it is meant to be

trivial non pursuit

at times it is so hard to prioritize
when trivia and its machinations
look you right in the eyes
but the small stuff needs to
be put in its place
things that are really important
need the space
it is sorting it out
that we fuss most about

loveshine

the light without,
the light within.
does not shine as
bright,
and sits in chagrin.
let yourself be illuminated,
open up your heart,
your sadness, negated.
fill every moment with
the joy that is living,
and in this bliss
you become
all giving,

well...

at times you have to
shake your life
to make your life

enough

enough torture
enough killing
it is beneath all dignity
and nothing
about it is thriling
i shout i rail
i doubt i flail
but with every
breath that
god provides
this is the wave
i choose to ride

half...

i try not to ask the reasons why
sometimes when we open that flask
we start to cry

in infinite space

in infinite space
confined in one place
while running in motion
drought seeking
an ocean

yoga on the brain

i jest but yoga is how i start my day,
gets all the rattling inner demons out
of the way

we watch over you

We watch over you.
We hurt when you cry.
Whatever the reason
it does not matter why

i wish to watercolor the world

i wish to watercolor the world
into place of love and peace
ruled by reason and harmony
all bloodshed ceased
i wish to choose a palette
of the softest hues
soothing pinks, subtle blues
violets and lilac
lavenders and greens
no pigments for the cruel
for the hateful or the mean
and when high toned colors
come into the mix
they are shades of elation
as our planet gets fixed♥

as eyes

as clouds gather around heads
darkness heralds a time for bed
eyes close blithely
awaiting rest
a peaceful regrouping
for tomorrow's test

cheerlead her

every day is a fight
for what we believe
for what is right
but we will continue
strong in this battle
and shake every cage
no matter how many
we have to rattle
the harder the road
the better we run
there is no heavy load
that will ever see us,
undone.

one day she awoke

one day she awoke
what a world she found
lush, verdant and teeming
with life all around
the rushing of waters
the singing of birds
the colors of freedom
such music she heard
then slowly her eyes
opened
things were not what
they seemed
in the hustle and bustle
she managed to dream

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
