she searched for a poem

she searched for a poem in the
once annoyed.
finding instead, the null
and the void.
she searched for a poem,
some space to fill.
the words sometimes
by force of will.
she searched for a way
to push aside,
the sad and the sorrow.
that held her stride.
but no poem sincere
would ever emerge,
she searched for a poem,
and with it
she stood on the verge.

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
