can do birdie

my name is pteribird
watch me play.
i climb, bite and
chew, most
of the day.
but when my
humans first
took me into
their hearts,
my life almost ended
before it had a chance
to start.
and now i am growing,
encouraged and getting
from a bird with bleak
prospects to one
who now is living
better and longer.

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
