old lang, signed

2011 bids farewell
a year has passed
almost to quickly to
tell
now 2012, the great
unknown, about
to land
its wits to hone
if each of us
does better
... this year
there will be
much joy
around here

in moments

in moments, rare
in moments, brief
i actually find
that there is some
relief

today is my last day

today is my last day
today i will die
i do not want to
be here
and i do not know why
today is tomorrow
yesterday, past
as i watch the clock
ticking
i wish it would last
today is the last day
i breathe on this earth
while others keep going
unaware of my worth
today is the last day
please let there be no more
sad homeless animals
waiting at death's door
ADOPT GO TO SHELTERS PLEASE

i will try to

i will weather the storm
i will surf the waves
be grateful about the lives
we all managed to save
i will
... try to ignore the hyprocrisy
the duplicities rampant
in front of me

lost in a place

lost in a place
i did not ask to be
where is the realtime
meaning of
sincerity

love is that

love is that little moment
when someone says hello
you look into their eyes
and somehow,
you know♥

the world, to bats

the world of bats
to some so strange
a world of fear
a world deranged
but in the dark
can you see
what they consider
familiarity
as it glows and leads
the way
so they can be bats
another day
and help us humans
as they play

The little girl

The little girl Went to sleep each day Hoping tomorrow The bad would go away

it was so quiet a night

it was so quiet a night
noone on the streets
the moon shined
large and bright
no children were hungry
no animals died
the world was at peace
from heartache,
noone cried
no sounds of gunfire
noone running in fear
man had reached that
much higher
and love landed here

every creature on this earth
in the eyes of the creator
are of equal worth

we live

We live in a world with modern tools
primeval torture,twisted rules
Cruel excesses, bloodshed, spent
Every part of this, by evil meant
Do we sit, heads turned and quiet
Or do we rise, with goodness
And defy it

shamelessly self promoting my new ebook: the movie

for ever


may peace and beauty guide your path
keep you safe, steer you away from wrath
may the warmth of compassion overtake your soul
and in this passion, keep you whole
may the love of all beings show you the way
... and in so honoring the great creator
we start each new day

my heart is

my heart is torn
but maybe
that is why
i was born♥
be what you is
be how you roll
it takes two halves
to make a whole ♥

lossed

lost and i float
too tired
to emote
it does not matter
if i miss the boat
 

the lavender lizard

the lavender lizard was once dull,
sad and grey
but then he chased the nasties
away
... he decided to like just
who he pleased
no matter what he was taught
at his elders knees
and with his new friendships
he walked towards the sun
sharing his kindness
with most everyone

when

when the mother of our earth
decided to create
a world with beauty
she did populate♥

Hope

Hope is the reason we wake up in the morning. Hope is the reason we turn the page. Hope is THE reason

My moonlight mile We walk together Seasons pass We are the weather

‎5 and 20
4 and 2
are just numbers
but can i count
on you♥

love is

love is not a drug
love is not a pill
love needs no prescription
to cure our ills♥

To those

To those purveyors, To those falsehood Surveyors. To those who toss Words, At the sheep In lost herds. To those who do Not realize That one day We arise.

arti fice

Artifice
So sorely tested
But we can survive
Just don't be
Emotionally
Invested
 

one step 4

one step forward
another to the side
to avoid the untoward
and prevent a
downhill slide

i know how it feels
to have noone care
that is why my
heart has so
much to share
♥♥♥

To hear a whisper, one has to truly listen

my world is too warm, keep my baby from harm

my world is too warm,
keep my baby from harm

winter creature
majestic and wild
born of the snows
an arctic child
what will happen
...to you
as the temperatures
grow mild
your icy palaces
by man
defiled

sunday dances

sunday dances blissfully
upon a wintry cloud
as autumn sighs
so wistfully
and exits
soft and proud

the clock

the clock ticks inside our souls
we have no choices
we are filled with holes
but every moment
we watch the hands move
... is our chance to make it happen
before we slip into the groove
 ♥

my new ebook

 http://www.scribd.com/doc/75285555/Dogs-of-my-Heart

it is...

it is never easier to walk away, the guilt that remains will forever stay

Friday, December 16, 2011

there is

there is a moment
precious and quiet
i never thought
that i would
be someone
to try it♥

Thursday, December 15, 2011

if time were slow

if time were slow and many,
choices we could make.
the high road or low,
which step would we take.
would we go the way
of the safe and known,
or take a risk,
and perhaps, have grown.
no redo button,
no fast foward no rewind
our heart is the place
to look
for the answers we need
to find

all fights

all fights have rounds
this round we have won
we keep moving forward
as if we had just
begun
we never get complacent
or rest on our laurels too
long
there is another road to
travel
and we must be strong!!!!!

stones

the world is paved with little stones
some are sharp, others are well honed
some are pretty, they glow at the touch
some are gritty, they hurt so much

one-der

The box is locked
The lid closed tight
wandering a
Dark of clouds
will it be alright

shameless, necessary self-promotion

tempers fugit

in testier moments
when wisdom
failed
by dark emotions
i was assailed
... so now i sit
in a similar boat
but through this
sh*t
i have learned to float

seasons greetings

seasons greetings
to all far and near
spread love and
good cheer
every day of the year♥

i walked along

i walked a long
and shallow path
i kept on walking
then the road split in half
and as i stood there
... two by two
it split again
in front of you

the color of blood
when it hits the
air, red
the color of the sky
when it smiles,
blue
but it is grey
when it has some
rain to do
the color of feeling
is transparent and clear
love beats like a rainbow
so real and sincere♥

is life

is life real
or is it that which
we see
or perhaps
the perception
of other
than "we"

older than...life in chrono-illogical order


started out older than dirt
wrinkled as a prune
entire body hurt
then i "aged"
life had begun
i became wise
when i turned 21
oh if life started
in such a bass ackwards way
that would surely
make my day;-D”

baby otters

we are baby otters
and we love to play
we learn something
new every day
so we can get along
in the otter way



fly

fly in the face of something
cold,
something raw
something wickedly told
throw pretzel logic
... out on its ear
then perhaps it
will be more
comfortable
here

and

and what if we sent
an "ark" into space
how would we treat
this brand new place
would we take our
animals two by two
then kill them one
by one,
because that is what
humans do
will we alter the surface
of our new home
then when this one
crumbles,
where will we roam?”

Sunday, December 4, 2011

the

the road is lined
with ruts and rocks
so many times
filled with hard knocks
but the pathes we choose
... and how we stride
if armed with heart
and goodness
we can take the ride♥

a world of

a world of clouds
lives in my head
some light and breezy
other grey with dread
some dance  so lightly
around my heart
others seem determined
to tear it apart
and here i sit
in the middle of the storm
waiting for summer,
so soothing and warm

Friday, December 2, 2011

and when the sun
turns down her head
she tells the world
it is time for bed
but ever so gently
... she lets her
children know
that the night
is for rest
and tomorrow,
she will show♥

soft

soft suns
sweet dreams
gentle moon
stars dance
ever quiet
in their own rooms♥

a warm

a warm comfy pillow
to rest one's head
dreaming of dancing
willows
around the bed
... soft silent whispers
a tree serenade
in quiet thank yous
for all god has made

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
