we are

We are babies
But that cannot stay
This will be our
World one day
What that world
Will be is
Up to you
So think before
Anything you do

Remember me when I was strong
Remember me when I was wrong
Remember me when fading time
Robs the lyrics from my rhyme ♥ KLK

we be

You are not me
I am not you
My eyes are amber
Your eyes are blue
But in the world
That is for “we”
There is room for
All gentle
philosophy

for norway

A candle and silence
For those who died
A gentle touch
For those who cry
A fervent wish, before
...It is too late
For no more bloodshed and
Terror on our plates
That the people on our
Embattled planet learn
Right From wrong,
And somehow manage
To get along ♥ KLK

my best friend's shoulder

there is a place
where i can rest my head
when i am feeling good
or if i am feeling dread
it is a place so soft
yet as strong as a boulder
my favorite spot...
by best friend's shoulder♥

hyenas we are

We are hyenas
Of the sun, sky and land
But people do not understand
Sometimes we have to be
Nasty and tough
Life here on the savannah
Can be very rough
But we love our families
And we care for them so
We do what we have to do
To watch our babies grow

ode to the invisalign retainer

ode to the invisalign retainer
living with this gizmo
takes a knack
it is impossible to
remove
so you cannot snack
you cannot drink
liquids that have color
or are hot
or the invisalign retainer
will become a not
it has to be brushed
several times a day
or the halitosis will
hang around and play
cannot let the new
gizmomo go adrift
or these sorry choppaz
will start to shift

earth mother laments

When the earth mother created this planet,
For man and all creatures
A garden was borne, of her beautiful features
A haven of habitats varied,
nurtured with care
Embraced by the blue green of the sea
the blue greys of sky and air
The deep browns of the mountains
The harsh desert sands
icy whitish extremes
of the vast frozen lands
and now she sits watching
her world slip away
the animals she cherishes
nearing their last days.

i am not a steak

I am not a steak
The little one is
Not a veal
We are a mother cow
And calf
That is what is real

?!

i followed your footsteps
as they walked
clung onto every word
as you talked
breathed your breath
...as you slipped by
knocked off my feet
too stunned to cry

a true friendship

a true friendship cannot be defined
it has no boundaries, draws no lines
it stands where others may never
go
it is a thing of silent beauty
most will never know♥

gratit

The world can be as beautiful
As you make it
Life is a gift,
In gratitude,
Take it

for betty ford

she was human
she was real
not afraid to show
or talk about
how she feels
a wife, a leader
a pretty face
and in her profound
human-ness
a symbol of grace

rhinos

We are rhinos and we love to graze
Undisturbed
In the sun, we laze
but poachers will not
leave us alone
if you want a horn
grow a one of your own!!!!

this is where

This is where we always swam
Before big ships filled with little man
Before sharp things thrown in our way
We swam, we lived, we ate, we played

lion

In my world, I am the king
Over everyone and everything
My life consists of naps
And the occasional battle
When I get hungry
I send the girls out for cattle
And if another male tries to
Muscle in
He will exit, in shame
And chagrin
This is my pride
Now go away
It is time to rest up
For another loooong day

the fourth of july is about being free

the fourth of july is about being free
living as one chooses, naturally
for all those unfortunate beings
who do not celebrate
as they are in cages or chains
silently, they wait
we are trying to change things
so they can fly high, dive in blue waters
howl at the sky
sleep in a warm bed, with soft human voices
when that day comes,
the whole world, rejoices♥

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
