the little flower and the sun

a little flower in the wood,
in the darkness, alone
she stood,
while other, more vibrants
busily played.
she cried in sadness
every day.
one day her cries
were heard by the sun,
who smiled upon her
and said,
you are the one.
and sol in all his
glowing mirth,
spread rays of sunshine
upon the earth,
and upon the little flower,
a gift bestowed,
the color of the sun,
and forever,
she glowed

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
