freedom of flowers

we are flowers and in our own way we are free,
though tethered to stems, leaves and branches
are we.
we are flowers, this is how we were created,
to live short, soft and beautiful...
the lives that the earthmother delegated.
we move with the winds, we
bow our heads to the rain.
we luxuriate in the sunshine.
we never feel shame.
and when it is time that we
go down to the earth,
we let go of our petals,
a sweet lifetime's worth.

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
