the lion and the butterfly...for cecil from his pride

a butterfly landed on the paw
of our king.
he sat, quietly,
not doing anything
but admiring the grace
and beauty of the little
no need to destroy
the loveliness he was
please learn this today,
take a look, take a picture
then walk away.

we miss you cecil,
his pride and his joys
our lives forever
our hearts,
forever broken

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
