ab senthe

drown myself in a pool of green.
there is no tomorrow,
that i can see

belugaland

we swim the seas
our belugaland.
we raise our families
we make our stand,
... our icy world,
is paradise.
people leave us
alone.
that would
be nice.
we just want to
hunt and play,
to live our lives
the belugaway
we are not cute
objects.
we are living whales,
so when you are in
the arctic,
just say hello
then set sail

b u

be you.
be proud.
rise above
the crowd.
and as you soar
laugh and shout
out loud☺♥☻

find

find the innocent child in yourself.
that is your greatest wealth☺♥☻

and then one day

and one day the aliens from outerspace.
came down to earth and looted the place.
seeing man, they were all too blunt,
"an inferior species, only suitable to.
keep captive or hunt".
and that is how it came to pass,
man only knew how bad it felt,
when he was "bitten on his own ass".

the little creatures

the little creatures
tuck in their heads,
the moon has risen,
it is time for bed♥

wolfland

wolfland.
we do not want what is yours,
we want what is meant to
be shared.
land belongs only to the earth,
... and there is enough out there.
stop destroying our families,
just let us be,
that is all we ask
of your human societies.

we r

we are,
but moments,
profound,
others devoid
of depth.
but we are still
around.

some

some people really matter,
the rest of us,
just need to be flattered.

we are

we are the brotherhood of wolves and man,
we do what we do, the best we can.
we survive, we eat, we live,
we mate, we die, we learn to forgive.
we want a place upon this
spinning orb.
is this too much for
manunkind to
absorb.

what i do

what i do is not the folly of
an older woman, retired.
it is not of regrets
about things long transpired,
it is about hope,
about change
about living.
about saving our world
and our earth mother,
forgiving☺♥☻

in kindness

i walked a step to
the kindness way,
this is the path,
on which i choose
to stay.
but if you are cruel
to me,
or to those in my heart.
you will meet the
not so kind part.
so do not provoke,
engage or attack,
because i am kind
does not mean
i do not
fight
back!!!!!

we lived

we roamed the earth. we lived and hunted with our brothers. we learned the way of the wolf, the bright of the sun, the light of the moon. we respected the seasons. we lived with the cycles of earth, in the arms of nature, and nature warmly received us.

the woes of the day☺♥☻

if there

if there are hearts left in this world. watch,learn, care. crawl outside your own skins into the embrace of the earth mother.  let your heart feel what she does,pride in her creations, and a devout appreciation for the worth of all beings.  as all encompassing as this notion is, ultimately, it is liberating. to love on a grand scale is to fill your soul♥

the

the coldest ice,
the warmest seas,
without them all,
there will not be.

the flower and the snail

the flower and the snail lived together happily,
as spring and summer are the seasons that they can be♥

the moon and sun,
playful until the
day is done.
then moonhorse rests,
in cushions of purple

in sweetest slumbers
until the day
is new☺♥☻

each minute, each second, is a life to unfold.
forever young, yet with the wisdom of the old☺♥☻

we have

at times we all get overwhelmed and upset,
"the world is the same, it has not changed yet"
but change takes time, it has ups and downs.
so we keep on going, we stick around.
we do what we can, while we can still do.
and yes, in small steps, we are getting
our message through.
so never give up, NO does not exist.
hope, faith and belief...
the top of our list☺♥☻

question dancer

did you ever feel as
if you were a
question dancer,
curious as all hell
but afraid to hear
the answer.
did you ever do
the one two step
to avoid,
any answers or questions
that might get you
annoyed.
and when in that corner
you found yourself trapped,
after all that footwork
did you give a crap

oil

fossil fuel, our world's
undoing,
but it is himself that man
is screwing.
waging wars with himself
and the world upon
which he dwells,
turning precious natural
heavens,
into manmade hells.
fighting, killing,
worse than crystal meth,
man has turned this
oozing substance
into the black death.

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.

free dome

Freedom to be,
Freedom to choose,
That which you see,
And by what you are moved♥

in a crowd

in a crowd of one million,
there are one million
"ones",
as each one steps up
positive change
has begun

in the hidden

the hidden worlds of a flower,
in its complexities live
simple beauty and power.

today is elder abuse awareness day

i am 18, life is fun.
i sure hope i will
always be young.
now i am 22,
being an adult,
so much to do.
now i am thirty or so
where did my carefree
teen years go?
now i am 45,
... a little slower,
but glad to be alive
now i am 60,
so fifty seems so
fit,
time went too fast,
what did i do with it?
now i am 80,
no excuse,
people ignore me
or worse,
there is abuse

there

there is,
then...

think

i do not what you have been drinking,
but i will not go along with your
magical thinking.
i am not here to analzye 
everything that i
have heard,
whatever you say, i will
take you at your word.
if you say left but you really
mean right,
right you get,
and this is not
out of spite.
no time for games,
games are the
province of fools.
just be direct and
clear,
those are my rules

a friend

a friend is someone
who really cares,
who keeps a secret,
but her heart,
she shares♥

for lennox

in lennox' honor
we come together,
today,
we will work for peace,
and committed we will
stay,
to ensure that no
other family,
ever has to endure
this tragedy.
no hate, no anger
just stronger resolve
until all BSL laws
are finally dissolved.
namaste, peace
and bliss,
lennox and your family,
a worldwide kiss♥


once upon a time,
there was a little girl,
lennox, her dog,
was her world.
then one day,
her world was seized,
by laws injust and.
morally diseased.
as her family agonized,
this little girl and her.
dog, were traumatized.
time slowly passed,
and sadly it flew,
a verdict unjust.
left a planet.
crying and blue.
so those of you,
who have the power.
to heal.
save this dog.
kindness is the only.
thing real☻.

time defined

time defined, by how it is spent.
words half spoken, some in haste,
never meant.
actions taken, that cannot be undone,
worlds, lives left shaken,
yearning for fun.
moments so rare, and those that
repeat.
time makes the rules,
and its laws, bittersweet.

too, night

tonight i want to
think the best,
have hope and
faith,
and get
peaceful
rest☺♥☻

dear young me, and all young me's out there

dear young me, and all young me's out there:
whether your life
is short or long,
find a way,
you need to be strong.
it is not enough to dream,
you need  to hold onto your
self esteem.
if you let anybody take
that away,
you will live to regret
their cruelty
one day.
believe in you
and what you do.
no matter what
happens,
you will get through☺♥☻

to be closed minded is to freefall into the void

u b u i b i

you be you,
i be i,
we cannot be
anyone else,
why bother
to try☺♥☻

lossed

lost, she wandered aimlessly,
between what is and what was,
and what perhaps will be

we live

we live, we wonder,
we pause, we blunder.
we make decisions,
we wait,
we are at the
starting gate.

She

She stumbled, She tumbled, Under her breath, She mumbled.

happy oceans day

happy oceans are
a living thing.
a happy planet is,
when our
waters sing.
when aquatic creatures
live and thrive,
our entire world,
just comes alive.

Thursday, June 7, 2012

i do not

you do not know,
you do not try,
you do not care.
i do not
ask
why.

restore

we live in an eden,
god built for mankind,
this garden we have
mistreated,
its beauty, in
history, behind.
how do we restore,
how do we save,
when the path
to darkness
on our planet,
our own species,
paved

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

some

some things astound
some things amaze,
when life is around,
i sit in a blissful
haze☺♥☻

Tuesday, June 5, 2012

we see

we see the world,
by freedom, blessed.
but others, sadly,
by hatred, caressed.
they cannot escape
their hearts pound
so strong,
they wait and wait,
yet something is wrong,
they keep on hoping,
but with constraints,
those of us, in ennui,
moping, we are not,
we ain't.
we cannot conceive
of their history,
their ancient cries,
their mystery

so gently

so gently beats the heart that yearns in sad silence, begging to be heard♥

a repost that had to be said♥

if your heart speaks loudly,

obey the sounds,

follow the path,

do not turn around.

believe in your being,

trust in your sense,

the heart is all seeing,

love needs no defense.
 

i know

i know how it is to feel alone,
to sit alongside a never ringing phone,
i know how it is to cry out loud,
and never be heard by the maddening crowd.
perhaps that is why i stand up for the lost,
the lonely, the unwanted, the sadly
starcrossed,
what else can i say, what else can i do,
except help others find a way
to get through

as the day

as the day settles,
the sun seeks her rest,
the moon, in fine fettle,
will soon build her nest♥

the little creatures

the little creatures stretched and yawned,
closing their eyes until the gift of dawn☺♥☻

how can

how can anyone make
another being bleed,
and not recognize
the evil
of their deed

Y R

why are we here,
i often ask,
why does life take
us to task.
however, wherever
whatever the reason,
compassion is our path,
and cruelty is never
in season!!!

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
