in this little wicker basket

in this little wicker basket,
we put your toys and perches,
wrapped in your blanket,
condolence cards and paintings.
poems written in your honor.
you were a gift from god
that you will always be.
you loved life and never held
back.  even as your illness
progressed,
you held on....
for us.
now you rest in heaven
and we miss you so....

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
