curling leaf

all the leaves and the branches
quivered from the cold.
the seasons were changing,
they were getting old.
one by one they had
to let go.
to land on a world
preparing for the snows.
little curling leaf
decided to celebrate
life instead,
with form and whimsy,
she would fall on
outside yoga studio
earthly bed.
dancing with the winds,
in joy, not dread.
the other leaves,
heard her pretty song.
some even decided
to sing along.

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
