by being

by being kind and compassionate
you find your soul.
all your questions are
answered
and at last,
you are whole.

water balance

the world in balance
used to be a rhyme.
each element a sonnet,
in its space and time.

purplogic

from earth i grow,
to earth i will go.

to be different is to shine from the light of one's own uniqueness♥

fennec fox and flower

a pair of ears
in which to
get lost.
an animal
as cute as it gets
oh yes for them
a most terrible cost,
if they are lost to
the trade of wild
animals as
pets.

seeds of the probable
in the vastness
of possibility.

parrots for peace...repost

parrots for peace

parrots for peace.
no war,
no more.
no hate.
for love
we wait.
before it

omeletta

omeletta and field greens.
imagining what is and what
it is, seems.

belgique

how many more crying flags
do we have to paint.
will peace ever be an is,
instead of an
ain't.

yellows

yellow smiles,
this is their time
in  a life
so
sublime.

spring gems

when you forgo the frenetic...

from where we begin

from where we start to be
to who and what we see.

beginnings

we are forever humbled
by all beginnings.

in the finite lives
a world of infinities.

thank you♥
we swim the seas
our belugaland.
we raise our families
we make our stand,
our icy world,
is paradise.
people leave us
alone.
that would
be nice.
we just want to
hunt and play,
to live our lives
the belugaway
we are not cute
objects.
we are living whales,
so when you are in
the arctic,
just say hello
then set sail.

thank you♥

we were born for a world
of ice and snow...
our frozen palace will
soon be gone.
where did it go.
the world that once
sustained us and
our babies,
now bare.
will you help us.
is anybody listening
out there.

clouds we see

clouds we see
of torrents,
torments.
stories not told.
youth once now
just old.
regrets silently forming
in thunderous accord,
the sun so sought after...
from inner light,
stored.

so blue

so blue is the color of sadness,
too...
but beautiful are
the hues.

float

floating above the drowning fray.
she wishes that she could live
this way.

the detail is in the devils

some animals love to roar or howl
purr, bark and/or squawk
i prefer to scream and growl.
yes a tad ornery i can be
but i do not want much
company.
my kind is endangered
so we need you,
to advocate for
and protect us.
our glorious grouchy
belongs here,
too.

♥tasmanian devils♥

today

we awaken
today
to embrace
the gift that
each moment,
is.

seals...repost

for those who hunt me because i am a seal
did you ever stop to think just how i feel
i just want to sit on my rocks and ice
if you would leave me be, that would be so nice
my fur is mine, not yours for the taking
just look at all the red blood you are making
go back to your homes, your families, your wives
and leave us seals alone to enjoy our lives.

reflection in brickness

her reflections,
stopped
by the wet bricks
made of tears
long
overtaken
by the refusal
to remember.

a heart changes

a change begins
when the heart
is open,
and as the floodgates
of kindness pour forth,
the world evolves.

orcas dream

orcas dream
we dream of oceans,

not swimming pools.

where we can live by

our own,

not human

rules.

we dream of our pods.

our unbreakable bonds,

that spread over the seas,

and far beyond.

lavendoos

lavendoos and don'ts
purple wills and won'ts.

by love, beckoned

by love, beckoned
the soul
sheds fear
so languid,
here.

bluebaretreebranch

bluebaretreebranch
for spring she reaches
high to the sky,
her branches,
open.

hypocritic oath

we all dabble in the hypocrisy pie.
a slice, not nice...but more than one
we ask why.
why rules for some
but not for all
to dish it out
alright

but to take it
and fall?
how blindly those
who by hypocrisy's
dogma stumble
on,
the world they feel free
to sh*t upon.
and we who watch
from the gallery
below.
can we do anything more
than just know!

inseyed

do you believe what you perceive
or do you perceive what
you believe.

every day is women's day...warrior woman



warrior woman

she lives her life
by her own rules
with an open heart
and zero tolerance
for fools.

sparrows

their days measured.
by
the light
and the darkness.
no plans.
no schemes.
it is what
it seems.

pink and white pelican

pink and white pelican
sees the world
not damaged by
man.
with joy she
watches sunshine
drip into
the sky.
a moment to relax
before it is time
to fly.

flowers

flowers never
complain
about the rain.
they do not regard
anyone or anything
with disdain.
they live each
second as if
it were their last.
a life well lived
and gone.
too fast.

eles

a world without elephants....
isn't.

by oft, aloft

by oft,
aloft...
then those
thinking times.
where weights,
words and worries...
where are
the rhymes.

we are the geriatracons
we search for a planet

take us to your leaders
before the next election.
we are really lost but
you are going in
the wrong direction.

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
