we lived here once...the garage eagles of maple drive have been evicted

we lived here once
upon a time
our generations
raised here.
all that we know.
now humans and
their noisy cars
decide we have
to go.
we are confused we mean
no harm.
our mess not intentionally made.
but humans heard a different voice
a cruel game they have played.
could you not have found a way
a gentle compromise
so in this our home
we could have stayed,
and not offended your eyes.
please rethink what you have done
this earth is meant to be shared.
we know you can do better than this
and deep inside your hearts
you care.

thank you,
the garage eagles

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
