do you reach for the lifetree

do you reach for the lifetree as
the leaves start to fall.
do you wake up and realize
the transient nature of it
all.
do you count all your blessings,
each day that you make.
do you savor each moment,
each step forward,
each mistake.
do you run from the notion,
the one all too clear.
that we were born to live
a short while.
we do not own "here".

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
