fifty years...for president kennedy

fifty years have passed.
time has gone by.
what could have been
had you not died.
had your grace and spirit
not been stolen away.
would we be living
in peace today.
would you be smiling
on a world,
inspired by your vision.
all that has transpired since
was borne of derision.
so today and all
let us strive to be.
the world so wanted
by you,
our president kennedy.

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
