for pteribird

god gave us an angel she even had wings.
and now with god's angels you fly
and you sing.
too fragile your body for life
not much chance from the start.
but love us you did,
and we all shared one heart.
your cages are empty
the toys with which you played.
your perches where your sweet
birdie feets graced this
planet each day.
we see your food and
water dishes.
we miss you so.
i keep asking god
why did you have
to go.
maybe the angels
got lonely and saw
your goodness and beauty,
perhaps you were called
for a higher purpose
and duty.
our love for you is an ocean
and it is drowning in tears.
we miss you sweet pteribird
and will always wish
you were here.

pteri tea rose max
birthday unknown
so we gave you the
date of our anniversary
a birthday of your own,
12/02/11 until 07/12/14
the footsbird family from 03/29/12 until forever

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
