a pigeons prayer

eagle nursery, sad and quiet
i lost my little nestmate today,
we always used to eat together
and play.
but she was so fragile, so very small.
we knew all along that
she had no chance at all.
but i watched over her daily,
to make sure that she ate.
knowing that all i could do was
try to put off her fate.
my little nestmate has died today.
we on eagle mountain,
bow our heads in silence
and pray.
watching and hoping

we will always love and miss 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
