there are

there is a moment when things seem smooth,
heart and mind are in the groove,
the inner peace, although not real,
at least she can pretend
it is something she feels.
then her heart again rails
inside her chest,
beating louder,
putting her to the
test.
she runs in circles
for the silence she seeks.
and for a moment,
that quiet inside her,
peaks.

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
