a fighting dog's tale


 i am a dog,
and you want me
to fight,
i do not like it,
how can you
think it is right.
i hurt or am hurting
this is how i spend
my day.
when all i want to
do is love you,
how did my life
end up this way?

The sense

The sense of mortal, Life is a portal

the little creatures

the little creatures
started to dance
and sing,
to celebrate
joy and
all good things♥
heart in circles.
head never listens
words flow lightly,
ideas glisten,
moments twinkle,
then flicker away.
eyes are closed
then,
another day

the worlds of pteri bird

i am a pionus parrot,
life is good.
my people treat me
exactly as they should.
they love me, play with
me, feed me well.
i am one happy baby,
as you can tell.
yet in my heart
there is another place.
a lush, warm garden,
a jungle space.
but my parents were
born here,
my grandparents, too.
this is my life,
this what i do.
no predators to chase me
i am almost never
caged in.
though not in freedom,
i wear a big parrot grin

drops of rain

drops of rain are nature's happy tears, bringing the gift of life, to all she holds dear

caught in the middle

caught in the middle
of what was and
what izzy.
there is no time
to live
if your head
is that
busy.

here is

here is to the different,
the ones who will not dance,
the ones who express just how they feel,
whenever they get the chance.
the ones who care about your feelings,
but care about integrity more,
the ones, who when the world needs healing,
are the first to open the door☺♥☻

and what we will be.
sometimes all that is too much

A lone

Loneliness trails me Every step of the way. This is the only "friend" I can count on to stay. I sure wish this "friend" Would go away!

in the morning

in the morning, when i rise,
i look into your eyes.
in the evening, before
i go to bed,
you look into mine,
instead
you are the spirit of
us all.
so blessed to feel
"your call"

we are a union

we are a union of many beings. like most unions, harmony, not discord, fosters strength. we work in sync, behind the scenes, wrapped up in our daily lives, busy and unaware.

and yet, we sense the power of the higher order.

there is a structure here, a foundation based upon interdependency and trust, expressed in mutual respect and gratitude, for the balance that has been given to us, and the understanding that it is our responsibility to maintain it.☺♥☻.

butterflowers fly

what is a butterfly,
a winged being.
what are you seeing,
if in the light, another
image
enters your sight

puppies dream in color

puppy dreams in color,
beautiful spaces,
soft, fragrant flowers,
warm, loving faces☺♥☻

flights

flights of fancy,
wings outspread
dreams of peace
run through
my head☺♥☻

if love

 
if love, in torrents,
began to pour,
would that mean
an end, to war.
would suffering
and cruelty,
go away.
we sit, in silence
waiting for
that day♥

where, there

where there is a heart, there is love, and where there is love, there are miracles♥.    

where love is found
where hate disappears
where kindness touches
everything,
far and near☺♥☻

it is not what

it is not
what the eyes can
see,
it is what the
heart can feel,
that inner sense,
that lets you know
what is real

it was late at night

it was late at night
i could not sleep.
the world around,
in trouble deep.
afraid to doze,
to wake up
to the same.
the river flows,
in heaven's
name♥

what

what kind of a world, to our children, do we leave? one we have cast aside, or one in which they can believe. ♥♥♥

beauty is


beauty is as one perceives it.
if you see it in yourself
others will believe it
do not refer to me
as a woman of a certain age
i am just a woman
who will not be
chronologically caged

WE CAN DO THIS!!!!

that moment

that moment where
it all comes apart,
it goes back together again,
inside your heart♥

for and aft

fore and aft, the boat shall sway,
but who controls  it,
anyway.

i dream

I dream that when I awake, the world is real, no time for fakes, that kindness rains, and reigns supreme, too bad that this is no more than a dream

what is

what is to some,
be it truth or
false,
too many steps
in this broken
waltz.

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
