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,
we ages.
we have learned
along the way
mistakes, life lessons
we had to pay.
we look at you
with your energies
and drive
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
we see in you
the we that is
no longer.
although our bodies
might weaken
our love grows
we wish you would listen
to what we have to say.
but when we were young,
i guess we
were the same way.

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
