the rocks and roadways

how i got here,
rocks and roadways
travelled.
heart left broken,
psyche unraveled.
confidence shattered
that i never had.
by will alone
i did not go mad.
too much to look back
on.
no reason to do.
distraught from the false,
yet afraid of the true.
calendar twisted,
by time's merciless
march.
thirsty but not
in the presence of beauty
broken,
i will not be parched.

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
