earth waltz with louise du toit

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hghIE45OfQ

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."

pangolin

Do you know me
I am a pangolin
I try to survive
... My numbers getting thin
People eat my babies
Take my home from me
Can you help stop
This misery?

i closed

i closed my eyes
it was not yet night
as my mind meandered
into beautiful sight
flowers blossomed
... loves nectar sweet
i did not want to leave there
at last i felt complete♥

so do

in the hands of man
few animals win
and those of us who care
live with chagrin
and those animals
... tormented, captive
and sad
innocent victims
of a world
quite mad:(

so do the very best
be the most kind
let goodness rule
your heart and
occupy your mind♥♥♥

the circle

the circle lurched
it bounced too and fro
stuck in its looplife
it has nowhere
to go

how do you measure
something not

In the

In the final phase If truth be told Integrity cannot Be bought or sold

the elephant goddess


The elephant goddess of the sun
Used to spend her days
Smiling at everyone
And now her eyes cry copious tears
As she watches in silence
 All that happens down here
Her herds depleted,
her forests dry
These acts repeated
She does not know why
And so her rays of yellow light
Start to fold up,
And give in to the night

GP...SSSS

if life had a built in
GPS
we could more
easily get around
i guess

we are blessed

we are blessed for each day,
the words we do or do not say.
the thoughts we can "hear",
those hearts we hold dear.
for each moment we are given,
... in dark or in light,
by gratitude,
we are driven
until we say goodnight♥

we live in a world

we live in a world
so sad and tragic
a gift given to us
by the creator of
magic
... but in cruelty
man torments
and kills
to those who care
a bitter pill
all my decades
living here
are covered with sorrow
and bathed in tears:(

in beauty so short lived, but forever in its scope, we work so hard to save it, our hearts bathed in hope♥

to be able to love

to be able to love
to have a heart
that feels
is to really live
and to live
what is real

for whitney


i remember her when,
her youthful zeal,
a bouyant spirit,
with so much appeal.
then she made choices,
... life became a fight,
the daylight lost
its footing,
she sadly slipped
into the night.
rest in peace
know that
you are surely
missed by those
whose lives
you all too shortly,
kissed

earth mother

i want my jungles
i want my sand
i want my mountains
once tall and grand
i want my oceans
... fresh and pristine
i want my forests
in summer, to be green
i want my planet
as it was meant to be
i want some humane
from all humanity

in darker

in darker places
man has dwelled
the darkest spaces...
one's own
personal hell

love is no

love is no place
to live
if you cannot
forgive

ope end

we open our eyes but are our eyes open?

empty baubles
petty squabbles
nothing resolved
feeling dissolve

she looked for an answer
none could be found
not a sure footed dancer
her eyes looked
toward the ground

rest pit

the day winds down
the sun rests her head
the moon and the stars
will watch the earth
instead♥

in the soft

in the harsh light of day
it does not go away
in the soft hues of night
everything looks
all right

we are what was, what is, what we hope for and what we will be

what is a home

home is the place where
you know you belong
when you feel weak
on the outside,
in your home,
you are strong.
home is the place
where you can
be secure,
i do not know
where home is
but it is not
here,
i am sure(

how it grows

you meet, you connect
you are not circumspect
if you have any doubts
you put them out
it feels so good
and you feel understood
then other people enter
into the mix
there are certain things
you cannot fix
add disillusion
and you have confusion
your baggage and theirs
some things, never shared
so you live or you chose not
to as second best
when you get too old
true love takes
a rest:(





tang led

tangled up in tangled up

sadder than sad can be

lost inside a frozen space

there is no room for me

the earth was

the earth was formed, a molten burning rock, then life forms swarmed, the creator took stock, all co-existed by nature's rules, only man resisted, he is THE fool

peace full

peaceful dreams of summer skies, gentle breezes, birds flying by♥

lost and

in utter silence
in silence uttered
lost and contused
under her breath
she muttered

mantra de every jour

mantra de jour
of which i am sure
there are some things
that can be cured
put one foot forward
... let the other follow
do not be deterred
by the heartless
and hollow

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
