we are harambe

we are the harambes
the ones lost amid
the confusion,
ignorance and intolerance.
the ones taken from where
we belong
and forced in boxes
that cannot contain
our spirits.
we are the ones,
the innocents who pay
for the failures and
failings of humans.

we

we respect ourselves
and the world in which
we live.
we treat all with compassion
and our capacity to give.
we take not for granted
the beauty upon us
that our creator bestowed.
we bask within that light
from our inner light
that glows.

so we look

so we look
but do we see.

perchers

we perch
we recharge
we reconnect...
garage eagles

take off

what adventures await...

mr feetses watercolor whirled

mr feetses in watercolors
flowers
butterflies.
in this world
mr feetses
never dies.

mr feetses

mr feetses takes a look
at the world that is his.
those that he loves
busy doing...
how good this
life is.

jardin des fleurs

if she could fall asleep in
a bed flowers
and wake up,
just the same.

sky

i see the sky
oh to fly around...
but it feels much
safer,
here on
the ground.

sparrow

the world is big.
i am small.
that does not
bother me,
at all!

dance

i dance where the music takes me.

together

we face uncertainty
but we face it,
together.

birdie secrets a la garage eagle

i whisper sweet love
only you can hear.
just close your eyes
and open your heart
and ears

robin red

robin read
the grasses,
green.
patches of dirt,
in between

in the night time coral seas she swam

in the night time coral seas she swam
fish of dancing colors sing
i am.
now corals die
what dreams for those
who close their eyes
and yearn
to doze.

coral are flowers of the sea

corals are flowers of the sea.
flowers are flowers,
naturally.

is

life is a gift delivered to your doorstep in a mixed bag.

what be a rose

what be a rose
a product of
nature
of man's invention...
rose cares not
for such
pretension

what will you ask

when that day comes
what will you ask.
will you seek the answers
that already took you
to task.
will you forget to forgive
or forgive to forget.
will you once more in
silence,
shout loudly...
not yet.

world endangered species day

our planet spins, revolves
as do we.
in our daily realities.
but we need to take
some time to think...
why is our world teetering
on the brink...
if all other species die
we will sit, bereft,
knowing that our species
is the reason
that we are the only
one left.
so get involved
with heart and soul...
help our world heal
and once again,
be whole.

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
