and the love
of
peace.

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.

skirts and flirts

skirts and flirts
petal parasols
everything to see
and nothing
at
all.

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.

pink felt fluff loveliness

pink felt fluff loveliness
in
soft summer breezes
singing songs to
remember,
even when one
forgets.

if by love

if by love,
no thought
for naught.
no hope
unnoticed
no heart
not beating

in the nightime coral seas she swam



in the night time coral seas she swam
fish of dancing colors sing
i am.
now corals die
what dreams for those
who close their eyes
and yearn.
to doze.

wreath

upon her heart
a wreath he lay
each petal
a song
a story to tell.
his love,
a circle
around
her
soul.

the birdie dating game

love is in the air
on the wing
everywhere!

we wait. 
before it
is too late!

inad-verdant

so lush and green,
imaginings of
rainforests
i pretend
to run
through.

whirled

for granted this world
we cannot take
lives will be lost
there is
peace to make
minds to change
changes in tune.
the world is not
forever.
but forever is
ruined.

latte-tude

the latitude
of attitude
is more than
just  a
platitude.

seen-yers

some of us are old
and grey,
much like you
we were not
born that way.
a life we lived
time passed
in stages
as that happens,
yes,
we ages.
we have learned
some
wisdom
along the way
mistakes, life lessons
we had to pay.
we look at you
with your energies
and drive
yes,
we feel blessed to
be here and
still alive.
though there is more
behind than
there is ahead
we do not allow
ourselves to be
enveloped by
dread.
we see in you
the we that is
no longer.
although our bodies
might weaken
our love grows
stronger.
we wish you would listen
to what we have to say.
but when we were young,
i guess we
were the same way.

portal

a sun drenched spot
of hope
a portal
to
a
better
world...

a drop

reflected in this droplet tear
everything that
happened here
all the moments
sour and sweet.
the tops of the world
the deepest defeats.
the wish it weres
the glad it was
the what one thinks
the what one does
in this mirror of
who we are.
we can see
both
near
and
far.

walk gently...repost

walk gently

walk gently upon our precious earth,
spread love and goodness
a lifetime's worth
share only what you wish
to receive
be forthright and decent
try not to deceive
avoid those who
by toxicity live
just keep on walking
away, as you forgive
do not look back
the past is done
point those feet forward
a new day has begun

wake up call

if this was our wake up call...
early  morning...
we would not mind you
at all.

leaves that look

leaves that look like
butterfly wings...
this world is filled
with beautiful
things.

if by love

if by love.
your heart possessed
then by love,
you are truly
blessed

be kind.
it is an investment in magnificence

free dome

the free dome
that hovers
inside our
hearts and minds
thinks not about
the follies
that surround
but about the
wonders
that
astound.

viewed

the disparity of clarity
when viewed from within
or seen from without

what by now

what by now
a moment's bliss
a gentle hug
a little kiss
a sign
a sigh
a tear
amiss
what would
life be
without
all
of
this.

for though

for though upon my eyes
there is a cloud of tears
a mist of moments
captured and freed
by time
and the most
basic
of
needs.

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
