july 4th independence day

staten island, NY


July  4th
Today is the day we celebrate
Everything that has made
this country great
The fact that we can sit here
And dissent,
 Many nations of the world
 never experience this
Accomplishment
Although  with our politicians
 We May disagree
This is a land of infinite possibilities
Of a people proud, diverse and real
There are not enough words
To express how I feel
Yes,  now we are living in
Difficult times
 But We Americans never falter, in our
Uphill climbs
Christians, muslims, hindus, jews,
Every color in the human spectrum
 May god bless you

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
