she sits

she sits in quiet
while her mind
rolls out the reels
of a life lived without
some wounds that
never heal.
what she expected of others,
dueling with her own
self respect.
plowing forward without
looking sideways,
a gaze too goal focused and
in her fears of the tomorrow
that will come too fast.
a life filled with hidden regrets.
no longer buried in the past.

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
