lifepath

he lifepath winds 
twists
gnarls
turns
which way you 
go
is how you learn.
the steps unbroken
the ones hobbled
and sore
none are a mere token
from each one
we learn
more.
about who we
are in this
world we call home
with whom we
travel
even when we
are
alone.

the place

the place where
warm hearts
and love
occupy
every corner.
the paradise
of very
nice.

the quest for sane

the quest for sane in a world, inane
unable to define
where sanity dwells
on a distant plane
boggles the
rational
mind.
while we the
rest,
just mill about
the remnants and
the ashes.
from our caves
we will emerge,
to replenish
our dwindling
caches

where to find love

love,
do you hide
we need you
now,
more than ever.
love is
forever.

haters

people that hate
what did you
achieve
in the end it is only
yourselves you
deceive.
the self loathing
horrors that
you perpetuate,
on others
because of your
own mental state.
you hide behind
movements,
ideologies
and screed.
as you clamor for
the moment
to commit
your misdeed.
the world
keeps revolving
its orbit quite firm
as you are devolving...
within your own skin
you squirm.


for now

for now,
the heart that
rests between
the heartache
and what happens.

hour whirled

our world is a paradise of endless imaginings

coldsnapped

yes there is beauty to be found
in cold and ice
but spring is here
and that is
really nice.
so melt away
olde winter crud
and make some room
for green and
buds!

narwhals and silver ribbons

narwhals and silver ribbons
playful and pure.
dancing through her
heartmind...
still awake
still in wonder...
ever hopeful,
she dreams.

peacedreams skyward

peacedreams skyward,
up she looks
for answers to questions
and questions not asked for
in books.
for the whens and whys
and how did it turn
out like this.
for the feelings

never to be echoed
and a place to
find
love's
kiss.

a life

wish a life
was led
by joy,
not dread.
no lies no sorrows
just love,
instead.

car tears

i was so nice
and
clean and polished
grrrr
winter storms
should be
abolished.
👅

parrotocracy

forget about democracy
you lives in a parrotocracy
there is no voting
no majority rule
if you says no
my kissable beaky
becomes a biting
tool.
i rules my world
with a claw of iron.
my humans cannot
defy me
(though they keeps on
trying)
now i the king
have a little more to say
have a groovy weekend
and a happy st patricks
day.

rhinos...repost

Rhinos

We are rhinos and we love to graze
Undisturbed
In the sun, we laze
but poachers will not
leave us alone
if you want a horn
grow a one of your own!!!!

we are kakapo

we are kakapo
just in case you
did not know.
we live by night
we lack flight
we prefer
the ground
but we do
climb around.
there are so
few of us
that remain.
we need your help
so please explain
to all that do not
understand
that we are part
of the landscape
and essential
to our land.
thank you for reading
and learning a bit
about us.
we are humble
yet mighty
and do not
want to make
a fuss.

we may

we may never know what could have
been
or what we should have done.
some questions are meant
just to be asked.
responses...
they are
none.

cats outside

our world can be hard
metal bed and pillow
beneath us
we have each other
and  the people that
feed us.
we do not mean to
make paw prints
on your cars
but cats do that
and cats we are.
to live inside would
be freedom, lost.
this life is all we know
and that is too much
of a cost

animals

they love,
we love,
they share,
we share.
they live
we live
they care...
do we dare
do just that little
bit more...
to save their lives
and the the lives
of those they
adore

is

life is growth and to grow is to live

corsage of snow and ice

to his love
the gentle spring,
a corsage of
snow and ice,
he brings.

the world is round
the world is flat
the facts astound
the truth goes
splat

my tusks are mine...repost



My tusks are mine
They are part of my head
But humans see them
As their own, instead
Theirs to take,
For décor and such
Humans leave us alone
Thank you very much

loveness

let the winds of love drift through the windows of your heart

that dreams

that dreams are felt
or seen
from afar
it seems.

earth mother laments



When the earth mother created this planet,
For man and all creatures
A garden was borne, of her beautiful features
A haven of habitats varied,
nurtured with care
Embraced by the blue green of the sea
the blue greys of sky and air
The deep browns of the mountains
The harsh desert sands
icy whitish extremes
of the vast frozen lands
and now she sits watching
her world slip away
the animals she cherishes
nearing their last days.

the earth was formed, a molten burning rock, then life forms swarmed, the creator took stock, all co-existed by nature's rules, only man resisted, he is THE fool

woman's day

every day is women's day

warrior woman

she lives her life
by her own rules
with an open heart
and zero tolerance
for fools.

the time too

the time will pass,
the days gather together
in heaps of hope.
memories will cling
onto moments
savored, tucked away
but never forgotten.
words uttered
perhaps littered with
regrets
or left unsaid
and broken.
images will fade
but never leave
the spaces
where they forever
dwell.
love stands still
though
change
it
will.

magic sky tree

tree
touch the sky
with your magic
hands
all glowing hearts
are
welcome

if the world were as graceful as a swan

if there world were
as graceful
as a swan
and love was
everywhere
we thought upon.

from here

from here i stand
this place
so tall
neither above,
below
or with it,
all.

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
