a thimble full

a thimbleful of love
what does that weigh,
and where does it go
when it goes away.
a thimble full of trust,
so hard to earn.
and too easy to lose,
when love is spurned.
a thimble full of hope,
circled round our hearts.
where will we be,
if that inner glow departs.
a thimble full may seem quite
small,
but it is infinite
as one cannot measure
what is contained,
in it.

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
