and when the world
crumbles,
she

meta floored...garage eagle

i am perhaps
a metaphor
for what is
what was
and what
shall be
no
more.

red

red reaches out
branches
beseeching

all

love grows love
hate just breeds
love is all
and the all
that
we
need.

the wall of love...for barcelona

there is no hate that can stop
the wall of love
nor tear down the beauty
by which this wall
erected with the kindness
of compassionate hands
will encircle the earth
and stand in the way
no hatred cannot penetrate
tomorrow nor today!

imagery, sweet

imagery, sweet
imagery, kind
soothes the sadness
of the soul
and the aches of
the mind.
nice things to see
nice things to
hear
keeps the troubles at bay
and the softness
so near.

we wait...

will this ever end. will the haters of the world ever realize that hate is a festering, and futile, evil. we send our condolences to those who loved those whose lives were stolen away by that hate and we hope for healing for all injured, physically and emotionally.
we ask very little, yet so much...we ask for peace and love to finally triumph. for hate to recede into the shadows it slithered out from
we wait with each heartbeat, each word, each dream each sound each moment
each day...

the shy, she

the shy,
she hide
behind
she can
her words
her laughter
a protective
fan
in her sheltering
hand.

the merry of berry

the merry of berry..
a tad and
so
very.

birds, bats, bees and butterflys repost

birds, bees, bugs, bats and butterflys

how i love those
on the wing.
music in flight
magical
things.
rumors of fancy,
imaginations
that soar.
thoughts that wonder
and ponder...
searching for more.

if the world was ruled
by kind hearts
not rabid heads,
perhaps we would have
peace,
instead.

fairyland wonder
to have missed this,
a blunder.

look into

look into the emptiness
there is much more there
than you could ever
guess.

in the simple

the gentle sound
lies the truth 
most profound

memories like droplets

memories,
like droplets
linger
absorbed
on soft
cushions
or trickle
earthward,
lost in
their moment.

progress

a certain percentage of people will always be part of the cruel and stupid mode, but it seems more and more of us are rising up against these cruelties and those who perpetrate them. as our voices get louder and more prolific, the vile actions of the heartless will perhaps lessen.

laws need to be enacted and enforced so that even those devoid of a moral compass will think twice before putting themselves at the mercy of a court that does its job..

just in justice and protection for all innocents!!!

unique

be not afraid to shine
to speak your mind
to draw a line.
be not afraid
to be you
stand kind
stand strong
in what you
believe
and
do.

i wish upon a cloud to find

i wish upon a cloud to find
to soothe my heart
and quiet the mind.
a peaceful petal pillow
no inner noise
just the warmth of the wind
such subtle joys

i will think of you

i will think of you
whenever when
i will think of  you
every now and then
i will think of you
when i think no more
and yes,
i could not
love
you
more.

the refresh of tears

after rain
morning dew
the refresh
of tears
and all
feels
new.

the pretty, speak

way the fear
of all that comes
and goes

here.

i am

i am not wise.
i am not sage.
what i have learned,
i have learned from
age.
time experiential
a few too many
closed door
moments,
tangential
and the
need to
learn
more.

prayer

let us stand in a circle and all hold hands,
unimpeded by boundaries of water or of land
let us close our eyes with a wish worldwide,
that wars were over, people cast all their conflicts aside,
that all god's creatures freely roam,
on every part of our planet that they call home,
that children are warm and all are safe at night,
in a shelter, filled with love and light

from where we sit

from where we sit
the look of it
with different eyes
still
a sweet
surprise.

the way, the far

the way,
the far...
the where
you
are,

if by words

if by words
a cure for your pain
your heart to heal
speak them loudly

perfect makes practice

if we practice kindness long enough, it becomes hardwired to the inner workings of our souls.

stripes

what fun it is when you
have stripes
no win no lose
no time for gripes
just time to forage
rest hide and play
such is life
the chipmunk way.

cardinal, read

what goes on inside your head,
said the little cardinal. red.
what thoughts and moments
swirl about
do they whisper
do they shout.

petal parasols
everything to see
and nothing

he looked

He looked at her unable to speak 
for words could not be heard 
over the rhythm of their hearts


flite

the flite she took,
sat
upon her chair
a camera view
to everywhere.

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
