the other road

we are all but one little person and all that comes with it. we can become so wrapped up in that package, cannot see outside.

spirituali­ty, if received by an open, curious mind, if in need of healing or not in need of healing, can help a person find their true center, and that is, that they are NOT the center.

spirituali­ty heals because we can surrender, by total volition, to the liberating notion that we are not alone and that in our smallness, we are part of an extraordin­ary whole♥

we are who

we are who we are
who we want to be
we can make for ourselves
a reality
within the confines
... of the world around
we maintain our integrity
and stand our ground

i am

i am but one small human, on an ever morphing landscape. i have seen so much and yet so little. so many technological advances, extraordinary in nature, and so much cruelty, a partnership born from the most evil of places. i know i am of no consequence in the larger order, but the larger order is of great consequence to me

for

for every lost
for every found
for every step
for all lost ground
for every moment
... that we take
a little life
we have to make♥☻

year of the

the dragon breathes
the dragon breathes
fire
and when he flies,
he flies even higher

de-press

and when dark clouds
surround my head
i run for the covers
and hide in bed
as fragile as a willow
buried under all
the pillows

and in that space

and in that space
between awake
and asleep
i find my solace
warm and deep♥

for gaby giffords



with courage coursing through your veins
you found a way to survive the insane
and with that strength that
kept you alive
it mattered most that
others thrive
true to that spirit
you step away
so others can do
what in your heart
you say ♥

do we

do we live or do we wish
our lives away
do we live or do we squander
every day
do we wallow in self pity
or do we transcend
the answer reached
only at the end?
our lives THE gift
to which far too many
give short shrift♥♥

the world of 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♥

she ran

she ran and ran
and ran some more
no open windows
many locked doors
she stopped a few
times
then quickly departed
finding herself
right back
where she started

if you do not know what

if you do not know what love is, fret not
we spend our lives discovering and rediscovering
this most fundamental of truths ♥☻

on borrowed time

the moms and babies
sit in their cage
as people mill by,
they slowly age
their days are numbered
their hours, few
and thus encumbered
what can they do

shameless self-promotion...the sequel

i dreamed

i dreamed of a world
of color and bliss
where each day was
greeted by
love
and
a
kiss♥

if the right to knowledge is removed
censored by governmental heavy hooves
who would be next on their chopping block
as more freedoms lost
so ticks the clock

when you

when you thought it wasn't
then found out it was
how did you handle
all the buzz

if your soul is full, a wolf howls within, if your soul is void, there is no din♥
we know that hearts, in unison, cannot be defeated♥♥♥

quietly

Quietly,
Her inner world
Sits still...

truth be?

disillusioned
feeling hurt
very dismayed
buried in dirt
lied to, led on
truth be told
deception hurts
even when you
are old

yogamama


peace and love no longer in vogue
ask me if i care
i am going rogue
i think that there is
nothing wrong
with flying my freak
flag
and singing along
so go right ahead
call me a hippie
that works for me
you bet your sweet
bippy☻♥♪♫☻

what we need

too much cruelty
pain and sorrow
the earth is hungry
for kindness, to borrow
perhaps for a day, an
... hour, a year
the sun will shine that
much brighter
once compassion
gets here♥

night comes crawling
haunches bared
the moon is calling
with starlight,
shared♥

hold love and beauty in your heart and hands ♥☻

mountain gorilla

i live hidden among
arboreal green
i do not wish
to be heard
i do not wish
to be seen
and if you enter
my habitats
come with cameras only
and remember that♥

a new

a new becomes old
so we are told
making room for something
newer to unfold
then that fades out
like yesterday's news
time once again,
for those yet unworn
shoes

 in quiet moments,
 a rumble heard.
some secret torments,
that do not need
words.

as it was given,
be by kindness
and compassion,
driven ♥ KLK

in its muted mysteries
a blanket for all

2012
another year.
a gift in itself,
although the future,
not clear
a double sting
of the disappointment
thing

with dog

with dog as your copilot, you can fly,
with your best friend, who never asks why
with dog as your copilot, even if you are blue,
your best friend understands as he sits next to you.
the embodiment of loyalty, trust and good cheer,
where would earth be, if dogs were not here ♥

empathy repeated, never often enough

empathy is a precious word
often uttered,
but rarely "heard"
often asked for
but hardly given,
man is far to "me me" driven
and needs to learn
that the greatest joy of all
is to share of oneself
and feel 10 feet tall!!!! ♥

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
