for those

for those who have lost their lives
for those that love them.
for those who wait
and wait
tears streaming
hoping,
as fear grips their
every breath.

for those who hate
who think that somehow
ideology overrides
basic human decency..
whose own basic goodness
has been destroyed by
their own delusions.
as they are now in a morass
lined with the blood
of their victims

yes, we pray.

we pray for miracles...
for that little spark in all
of us...
that place where love
can and does exist.
we pray that somehow
this stops,
that sanity and kindness
gently insinuate themselves
in the darkest of corners.

and the light that is goodness
will embrace the earth,'

we pray.

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
