peace is a word

peace is a word
we have often
heard.
it is tossed
around like
sports
equipment
peace is a state
of mind,
to which we 
all aspire...
in word is
easier to
attain.
in action...
inaction
peace is a state
of non aggression
an absence of hate.
a state barely populated
yet admired.
peace exists as
the unattainable
star.
shining high above
the bloodbaths
below.
its lights
dimming.
are we so hardwired to
pull, push and twist.
is the peace chip
something
we have
somehow
missed.

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
