memoreyez

from the center they start to fall
below.
in those now blank spaces,
nothing will grow.
the center clings on to
what it can
as winds, time and weather
exacts it plan.

head in the clouds

with head in the clouds
she weathered the storms
of her own inner protest
and the jangling
outside.

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

differ

we embrace variety
not the indifference
of propriety!

goes up

goes up
the center
just because
keeps on going,
without a pause.

is the heart

a swirling smorgasbord
of feelings
is
the
heart.

though muted
softly graced
with wiser

no lines no crowds
just what ifs and
what "weres"

so soft in spirit
sweet reveries...

perhaps it will
get be fixed.

rose white pink tints
the life of a flower
changing.
rearranging,
years measured
by hours.

a step closer to...

rumors unfounded...

of greens i dream
so far away
the space between
our yesterdays.

of things celestial and celebratory

Of things celestial and celebratory 
Flowers remind
The fragrance
Of
Sweet moments
Here now
And soon left behind.
To relish 
To 
Cherish
By time,
At times
Embellished.

as the centerpeace
found, embraced.

toadstool convolutions

the world of illogic
trapped in its own
mess and mangled
by rhetoric only
comprehended
by none who here it!

by nature, touched

by nature touched
as we share this
landscape,
curiosity fueled
a sense of
wonder and
safe distance.

cluelist

i do not understand
do not want to
will not
how with this
one life we
are given,
some choose
to disregard
the nature of this
gift,
spit on the giver
and spread their
screed,
ultimately unsatisfied
as such actions
only breed
deeper miseries
how with the laws
of time that
we all breathe,
they opt for ugly,
when life by its very
existence
is the essence of beauty.

do not lead me too far
from where you are.
at what cost

bendbranch emu

once upon imagined time
an emu entered a human's
rhyme.
as slowly he strutted
along his way,
a branch he became
on that fateful day.

leaves

i do believe
that in the
intricacies
of leaves,
a story
unfolds.

cluster

so pretty the love
that like in clusters,
gathers together
and grows.

this not that

that not this.
this not that.
the ugly world
of tit for tat.
how far how low
have we devolved
spoken,
broken.
nothing solved!

four freedom

for freedom we pray
for all oppressed
for all in need
for all distressed
for freedom
from hunger
pain and fear
for a world
of peace
to draw
ever near.

behind soft defense

her wounded heart
such walls surround
behind soft defense.

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
