new world, disordered

we once had thoughts
now that is for naught
we once had ideas.
no need for them here.
we once had a dream
now that is video streamed
no need to create
with everything poured
onto our plates.
we once had occupations
now lost to
technomechanical
machinations
we once got off our
chairs...
we no longer go
anywhere.
these toys we created
to liberate us...
now they outdate us.
oh where is yesteryear..
gone forever,
i fear.

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
