remembrance

we sit in a quiet pool of tears,
saddened by loss,
humbled by fears.
we think of the world,
since that terrible day.
we ask ourselves,
why has the bad not
gone away.
for ages and ages
others have asked that,
too.
the answer is up to us...
the mes and the yous.

so rest in peace
those who today are
not here.
and to those of us
who are,
peace is our mission,
quite clear.

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
