my feathers are ruffled
the few that remain
sometimes i very nervous
my former life was a strain.
i gots some arthritis
i old just like some of you.
but i embrace my new life
and those who embrace it,
beauty is what the heart
tells the eyes,
my humans think i am handsome
(p.s. so do i)
yes i am a bit of a ragamuffin boy,
but critters like us
can bring the most joy..
so when you goes to the shelter
to adopt a new friend.
adopt an imp-perfection
and perhaps start
a trend.

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
