joan...for joan rivers

you made us laugh at
ourselves and at you.
this something you taught
us all to do.
to take life as it is,
with a twisty smirk.
no matter how life
could do its dirty work.
we saw the loving heart
that you tried to hide.
in spite of your sometimes
acerbic wit,
we all saw inside.
and now the world
is a less funny and more
unhappy
space...
nobody will ever
take your place.

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
