we beckon with soft color

saturday morning in garage eagle land

we start our day
the garage

his embrace

his embrace starts from
the heart and opens
as wide as the sky.

pigeon familias

our daily lives a struggle.
we work hard to survive.
we get up every day.
and try to stay
alive.

in the kingdom of the garage eagle



from three viewpoints

the same i am
but
lost in "mistranslation"
from the turbulent
inner workings of
the unevolved
and twisted.

saging...not aging

the wrinkles and sags i could live without.
but that is not what aging is all about.
it is all about learning to prioritize,
and keeping your eyes on what
is the real prize.
wisdom, compassion...
no more drama...enough.
and gratefully not sweating
the petty, small stuff.

too deep

afraid to merely coast.
afraid to go too
building next door
deep.
afraid to be awake...
afraid to go
to sleep.

for maya angelou

although you have left us
we still hear your voice,
with our hearts, and our minds
in your beauty we
rejoice.
rest in peace on angels wings
as they sing their sweet sounds.
our world is a better place,
because you were
around.

starfish leaf

how sad i sit
in this final
repose.

length

to go any length
takes enormous
strength.
floral park, NY

if you

if you looked at
the world from
another point of
view,
you might learn
something
valuable and
new.

in the green leaf blanket

in the green leaf blanket
a rose.
in mysteries
she grows.

we cluster and we are one

i work the waters

i work the waters,
i sail through
the skies.


seabird off staten island



did you make a hole in my cloud

why did you make a hole in my cloud.
does it make you feel better,
she shouted out loud.

she dreams of a field

she dreams of a field
sweet cushions of pink,
where in slumber and
silence.
she could gently
sink
ny botanical gardens

her eyes sought soft purples

her eyes sought soft purples.
her heart would not dare.
too easy to be hurt.
when someone knows
that you care.

bring me your reds and greens

bring me your reds
bring me your greens
bring me all that
you have felt
and seen.
i will bring
the same to you
we will be covered
in love,
whatever
we do♥

on memorial day

On memorial day we honor those who have served
 The army, the marines, air force, the navy , the reserves
We honor those who fought so that we could be free
To enjoy our careers, our friends, our families
We honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice
So we would not pay the worst possible price
To be enslaved, our freedoms torn
Into a lifeless world our children would be born.
This is not about being in favor of war
We all hate the bloodshed, the pain, the gore
This is about people who did what had to be done
Here is hoping that one day,
Wars will be none.

never more noticed

never more noticed
never less seen.
next door neighbor

the key of low

in the key of low
she quietly sat.
her mind wandering
from this
to that.

we grow bigger

we grow bigger every day.
young we are now,
but young we
cannot stay.

she looks for flowers
to show her the
sun.

mist...repost for a friend who lost someone near and dear to her

Mist

to those once with us, who no longer remain,

we feel your loss, and it causes pain.

but we know you are in a place of peace,

with others, just like you,

whose troubles have ceased.

your tenure on earth with us never enough,


yes we go on, but at times it is rough.

could we untangle

could we untangle our high maintenance lives,
and live as our ancestors did.

streaming

we walked along
this watery path.
our silence accompanied
by the earthmother's
sweet songs.

kings point park

make it your own

welcome to this little world.
make it your own.

holes

look inside
what do you
see...
a magic world
inside this
tree.

time tells

time tells us how much we have to spend, but not how to spend it!

floating in space

floating in space,
on an aerie
of dreams.

colors

what color is the meaning of your heart.
the saddest spot, the happiest part.
can you define the pigmentation...
when it is all about sensations.

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
