the world is really a scary place

the world is really a scary place,
the little girl sighed, her hands
over her face.
it moves too fast, it gets dark.
it gets loud.
then those silences again,
feeling like a shroud.
those moments when she
stands frozen in fear.
unable to run
crying get me away
from here.
those lulls between the
knots and twirls,
where she almost feels
like a normal little

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
