her last travel

she was travelling slowly through an open space.
a field of flowers caressed her face.
she felt her body lighten then start to
disappear.
pain would be no longer near.
she heard the voices of those
she loved.
she also heard other voices
from high above.
this was her time to
say goodbye.
she knew those who remained
would be very sad and cry.
she tried to look back,
but back was too far away.
she called out his name
when she realized that
this was her last day.
then embraced by
a warmth she needed so.
one last breath she gave,
then she
ny botanical gardens
let go.

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
