grew old...letter to the young

all of us
but once were
young.
ran and kept going
all about fun.
did not listen to
stories
that we were told
by those we simply
considered old,
the words from their
hearts and mouths
to deaf ears fell.
we thought we knew
it all too well.
now years and days
accumulate
your words have faded,
or heard, too late.
and ironing out the
ironies
you always knew
that one day we
would
be old like you.

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
