go lightly

if you find the road too wide,
sometimes is it okay to hide.
and when you see that
it starts to narrow,
flit lightly above it,
like a sparrow♥

colorworld

she lives in a world of colors
profound
each has a meaning
each has a sound
...and when the light dims
and her eyes start to fade
she will remember the colors
and all the joy that they made ♥ KLK

donkeys

Do not judge us
We are not you
We do what donkeys
Were born to do
...We are not stubborn
we do not like being
used
we are not tools of man
to be beaten or abused
if you want us to help you
be kind with your request
we will gladly oblige
if you do your best

joie

live with gusto
live with passion
live each day
like a chain reaction
lead with head and heart
tenderly
inclined
leave all the pains
of the past behind
today is the moment
tomorrow looms ahead
smile every time
that you get
out of bed ♥ KLK

dog and cat

and when my humans say it is time for bed,
i go to sleep on my best friend's head♥

ode to the bucky boy

my name is bucky boy
and i live to play
so glad that your house
is now in my way
if the door is open,
that room i will
go through it
whatever is not nailed down
i will gladly chew it
if your shoes are in range
i would love to munch
nothing like brand new sneakers
as a snack before lunch
that watch you got when
you graduated from high school?
i stopped time with my puppy teeth
a-roooo ain't that cool!!!
and furniture, no problemo
wood does good fiber make
that dining room set
a great teething break
yes i am part wolf and i
like to howl
but take away my food
and i may start to growl
you are humans, that is
very clear
but three guesses who
is the alpha here

RIP bucky boy
homewrecker par excellence

little puppy


The little puppy
In his secret land
Just relaxing,
Nothing planned
As he revels
Insights and sounds
Filled with love
 and compassion
For all that surrounds

hour whirled



Time passes quickly
As it must
No time to settle
No time to rust
Given moments
With which we flow
What happens next
We never know

k 9/11 hearts



They stand by their person
Tall and proud
Waiting for each command
By hand signal or aloud
Their paws are so tired
They are cut until raw
But they keep on going
Keep looking for more
Into the rubble into the fray
Not fearing trouble
Will  someone be saved today.
Eyes tearing from smoke
They plow straight ahead
As they cough and they choke
Perhaps wishing for bed
Tirelessly devoted  doing their best
At the end of the long day
Head on their person’s chest
Knowing tomorrow
Will be more of this sorrow



soulstice

As crickets herald
In the night
The stars and moon
Stay out of sight
Cloud laced sky
...Dancing to their song
Lamenting summer
Soon to be gone ♥

my tusks are mine


My tusks are mine
They are part of my head
But humans see them
As their own, instead
Theirs to take,
For d├ęcor and such
Humans leave us alone
Thank you very much

Her rules

She lives her life
By her own rules
With an open heart
And zero tolerance
For fools

manturned

man turned to the heavens
for something sage
some answers to questions
he constantly waged
and when they did not
...come in the manner
he wished
upon earth, in his vengeance
havoc, manunkind, dished

guerre de coeur

we are tired from battle
the war just goes on
our nerves, at times rattled
we don't feel that strong
then we take a deep breath
...step back and regroup
rally our defenses
and gather
the troops♥

i am one cute puppy

i am one cute doggie
and i know it
when i want my person
to do something
i love to show it
...i work the ears, the eyes
the tail, the paws
and she just stares
at me and adores♥;-D

there are so many

there are so many things
life cannot erase
but none are as strong as
the love
when you touch my face♥

Beyond the moon
Above the stars
You do not have
To travel far
A little world
Of peace and flowers
Where kindness is
The source of power

for my friend, who took his young, vital, important life this morning

I did not know you well,
But have seen you over
The years.
Our chats, peppered with
Laughter and lots of good cheer.
But underneath that smile,
A world inside,
jumbled up confused,
From which you could not hide.
You tried to express all,
That tormented you so
But in the end, it had
Nowhere to go.
so you took yourself away
from all the pressure and stress,
leaving behind those who grieve,
and those who caused you this mess

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
