lovebirds

we share our love,
it is what we have
to give,
there is no better
reason to live

indifference



in different bodies
in different minds.
in different heartplaces,
at different times.
all on the same planet,
though habitats
not the same,
united in lifeness,
though different
in name
☺♥☻

be kind to seniors

i am slow,
i am old,
i am not useless
though that is what
i am told.
i am human.
just like you,
and just like you.
i want respect too.
so if you live smart
and your genes accomodate.
you will find old age on
your own plate.

solace tare

she hides in the cards, likes solitaire.
where her mind likes to run to, most
everywhere.
each mindless thought process,
a refuge of some kind.
a non challenge challenge,
at times good to find.
a way to be closed,
a way to be open.
a wide awake refuge,
the place of all
hoping.

she sees

she see the world from within.
this is her way.
she look through bars,
where it is safe to stay.
but in that exile so
self-imposed and
blue.
there is only room
for a her,
not a you.

sum

some people so wrapped up in their own inner workings that they hear no other voices than those that echo their own.

to not care

to not care about ALL life is to not care about life at all!

freedom

freedom to think
freedom to type.
freedom without
a blink,
freedom to gripe.
freedom to smile.
to laugh or cry
as we
choose.
freedom is a win,
without it,
we lose!!!!!

dis pared

i try to move beyond despair,
i look in circles, everywhere.
but all roads lead to where
they inevitably go.
so for the moment,
much despair i know.

the world of the spirits

the world of the spirits.
nothing to fear.
this is where we all go,
when we leave here.
as we stay,
we pave our way.

we are all

we are some of the below,
we are some of the above,
the ratio determined by
whether we are ruled
by hate or love.

the lights are flickering

the lights are flickering,
they are very dim.
it does not feel real,
perhaps i am a sim.
stuck somewhere between
wishes,
and what cannot be,
unable to bear my own
sad company.
not knowing why
failures dog me
every step of the way.
unable to fight it,
yet still
willing
to
play.

wiz

wisdom borne from sorrow, brings better tomorrow♥

miss takes

over and over
and over again.
running through
the scenarios
nothing but pain.
cannot undo.
cannot be undone.
many battles fought,
not meant to
be won.

we are...for the wolves

we are the spirit of earth and sky.
we want to live, we do not
want to die.
and yet you two legs hunt us down.
laughing and cheering as we lay
on the ground.
please try a little harder to
understand,
we are of the earth.
we are older than
the land!

dogs teach us

dogs teach us that the heart is forever open and expands in direct proportion to our ability to love !

reins

i heard you were gone,
and the rains will not
stop.

i feel their sad
heartbeats,
i touch every
drop.
lost in the moments,
a throwback in time.
songs filled with lost
lyrics.
a motionless
rhyme.

the wisdom

the wisdom of kindness,
and the kindness of wisdom
☺♥☻

poachers

blinded by ignorance and greed,
indifferent to the agonies
caused by their deeds.
not fearing death,
but causing so much death
to so many.
their useless inhumane lives
worth less than a penny!

if goodness

if such goodness were contagious,
it would be so wonderfully
outrageous!!!!

with knowledge, profound,
and a love for all the beauty
that is all around☺♥☻

there are times...

there are times when words do not suffice...there are acts that defy even the cruelest of possibiities...there are questions for which the answer is either too readily found or not at all...there are moments when you sit, overwhelmed by the horror of it all, frozen, unable to speak...

these acts of man, these heinously beyond cruelties perpetrated on the innocent because man, can....

i sit

i sit in silence,
or so i mutter.
is this really
quiet,
or an overabundance
of clutter?

in amazed

in a maze.
in cirles,
full
not round.
feet flying
everywhere,
but there is
no ground.

pax

do you laugh
or cry,
then you are
the same as
i.
though we are not
of one mind,
we are of
ONE kind.

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
