the legend of the white flower

there was a beautiful land, once filled with love and light. all the little creatures, different as they were, understood their part in the meaning of things and lived in harmonious spirit.

time passed, and visitors arrived.  they stood, overwhelmed by the beauty before them.

the little creatures, cautious though they were, welcomed these strangers. 

the strangers took this welcome as an open invitation to do what they had done to where they came from.  they stole, hurt, killed.

soon, this beautiful land became desolate. 

the little creatures went underground.

one day, in the midst of the dark void that their world had become, a single flower emerged.

word spread of this flower and one by one, the little creatures and the plants they lived with, began to appear.

the strangers bowed their heads. humbled.   finally, they understood and sobbed in gratitude for the great knowledge they received.

hope had settled onto this once magical land in the form of one white flower.

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
