be a mother to your soul so fragile

be a mother to your soul so fragile,
wounded by life and years
no longer agile.
nurture your heart so heavy
at times.
fill the empty space with
music, beauty and
rhymes.
hug yourself when
it is cold inside.
you can close your eyes,
but please do not hide.
be a mother to the joys
that come your way.
go outside of yourself
and learn to play.
and when you have
completed these tasks.
share the glow of self
acceptance...
never too much
to ask♥

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
