winter's dark cold,
spring time
new life,
everywhere.

what purpose

what purpose profound,
what simple plan,
we live every day,
as mortal man.
and when we
ask why,
no answer, certain.
as we open our
eyes,
and open
the curtains☺♥☻

judge and

judge and jury,
real or fake,
which will be
the choice
you
make?

in the vast expanse

in the vast expanse
of recompense,
so many things happen
that do not
make
sense

in the simple beauty

in the simple beauty of being kind,
the simple act of looking behind.
not leaving a soul,
lost and scared,
doing whatever it takes,
to get them.
"out of there".
knowing that one.
fragile soul,
is the soul of us all,
a cry, not heard.
but you answer.
the call☺♥☻

will you walk alongside

will you walk alongside
when the waters get rough,
when the party ends,
when things seem
too tough,
will you stay in step,
every step of the way,
so when the good times
return,
together we stay☺♥☻

memorial day

On memorial day we honor those who have served
The army, air force, marines, the navy , the reserves
We honor those who fought so that we could be free
To enjoy our careers, our friends, our families
We honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice
So we would not pay the worst possible price
To be enslaved, our freedoms torn
Into a lifeless world our children would be born.
This is not about being in favor of war
We all hate the bloodshed, the pain, the gore
This is about people who did what had to be done
Here is hoping that one day,
Wars will be none

and this includes our four legged friends,
of loyalty, love and valor
even after the end♥

in moments rare

in moments, rare
when you used to care,
it was nice to know
that there was
someone there

a deep

a deep breath taken,
still very shaken
when from this shadow
will i awaken

this picture

this picture can be seen
on three sides,
does this tickle
your imagination
or make you
want to run
and hide

the volcano goddess
the goddess of the volcano
can see the sky,
the fish that swim,
... the birds that fly
the land where her lava
begins to flow,
when she decides
what earth
should know

we walk

we walk around,
things for granted.
we take.
at least we have.
choices
in the lives.
we
make☺♥☻

at times

at times we wonder
at times we accept
at times we blunder,
all is circumspect☺♥☻

Fore

For love, For wise, For folly, Surmised.

it was

it was yesterday,
or so it seems,
the lights go out,
but not the dreams

i see

i see their faces,
even after i close
my eyes.
in my heart's
deepest places
i hear their cries

love is

love is wisdom,
love is glee,
love lasts for a
moment,
or an eternity.
love takes a chance,
love does not move,
love lives to dance,
love is the groove☺♥☻

papagan

papagan lives in a world
of pinks, oranges, blues
and greens,
she hides deep and far
so she will not be seen.

in tired

in tired moments
weak and afraid,
in such a state
what plans
can be made?

Friday, May 18, 2012

we are what


we are a combination of
what is and what was,
but there is no what
will be,
if we are drowned
in past buzz.

in infinite

in infinite time
in space never ending,
the world just spins
out there,
there is nothing,
mind bending

numb-bers

four plus five
two minus six.
life is harder than
math,
and filled with
many more tricks

how beautiful

so beautiful our world would be.
if manunkind and greed
parted company☺♥☻

Monday, May 14, 2012

i wish

i wish you joy,
i wish you laughs,
i wish for you a
loving "better half"
i wish for a world
where you could
safely live.
i wish for all
people,
to learn to forgive.
... i wish that caring
would float
through the air
if you wish the same
please feel free
to share
 ☺♥☻

and on that note

and on that note,
she dropped the pen,
picked it up,
and started
all over again.

what is a mother

a mother is someone who nurtures and cares
whenever needed, she is always there
a mother is someone who has a kind word to say
especially after a long, trying day.
a mother is someone who will protect
wind rain and elements, she will deflect
a mother swims in the ocean, soars in the sky
walks or crawls on our planet
her young always in her eyes
a mother is wild, a mother is tame
a mother was once a child
at times, she has no name.
but she is a mother
a life she has treasured
there is no scale on this planet
by which this gem can be measured

in quiet

in quiet moments,
she could hear
the sounds,
of her inner turmoil,
spinning round
and round

a lonely voice

a frightened voice,
alone and scared,
made a choice
to see if someone
cared.
so chime out loud
she did,
and to her surprise,
an answer came.
bringing tears
of joy
to her eyes☺♥☻

meow-za

meow-za i am the cat
and i rule the roost,
but i in a good mood
today,
so i will give you humans
a boost.
take a tip from your
feline friends,
a nap is always good
until controversy ends.
and an accomodating lap upon
which to sit,
can quickly
end all that
arguing sh*t.
and if the lap
does not want to play,
with tail held high,
look the other way;-D  

mothertime

a mother cares,
a mother tries,
a mother dares,
a mother cries,
a mother watches
as her babies grow,
so much to learn,
yet so little to know.
her love the beacon
that shows her the way,
as mother and child move
together,











a step closer, each day☺♥☻

a wounded

a wounded heart,
an embattled soul,
so far apart.
and much
greater than
the whole

Oui

We rise, We fall. At times We do Nothing At all.

one day

one day the earth
looked for the sun
she looked everywhere, but there
was none.
the sun had left her overnight
to find another place to
shine his light
where life would be
plentiful and rich
where humans had not
carved out their
ugly niche
the earth looked up
there was no moon
no smiling orb
to greet her in
the late afternoon
the moon too decided
it was time to run
following in the track of the sun
the earth stood silent, all alone
and let out a sad, mournful moan

flying colors

My world is colors,
All around,
Sparkling shades
And
Sparkling sounds♥

we need to live in a world where tolerance does not need to be practiced...where it is finally, and lovingly, perfected☺♥☻

i have lived

i have lived my life
as i lived,
i suppose.
could i have done
better,
only heaven knows.
as long as all the
heartache
never shows.

the world is

the world is silent,
the world is profound.
the world is shallow.
a narcissist clown.
the world is humble,
the world is profane.
at times the world
mumbles,
so wrapped up in
the strain.

gnarlywarly

gnarlywarly, alone as can be
just a little knot
on a great big tree

i am....

i am old, i am jaded,
my time is through
my sight has faded.
but my eyes see light
and love's beauty,
binds,
for kindness, never
measured,
and so very hard
to find♥

in her tears

in her tears
a flower grows,
born of "lostness",
fears,
and heaven
else knows

the wolf moon

the wolf moon rises
and it sets.
it waits for the stars
then hedges its bets.

the bluest sighs

the bluest sighs.
dark clouds
so grey,
when will
this sadness
go away?

Thursday, May 3, 2012

let the

let the greatest of spirits
guide your hand,
show you the path
as you plan.
let the belief in goodness
and your place in
it all,
be the voice,
as you answer
the call☺♥☻

a day

a day
a moment,
in a space
where moments
are never
measured

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
