we walk a year

we walk a year ahead. we look behind.
we touch the grace of each moment.
even when the moment does not
respond in kind.

we pray for better as we
fear for worse.
our steps are our own.
in tandem and verse.

we have choices to make
when the cards seem
not thrown our way.
how we play and receive.
will determine our
days.

so kiss all sadness
goodbye
close the door on
the pains.
make room for the
next part.
of life's sweet
refrains.

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
