life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

blue skies


 Close the doors. 
You’ve already paid your dues. 
Light the candles. Breathe 
the Lilly of the Valley, the lilacs 
in the vase. Reach for a pen. 
Take a couple sheets of 
parchment paper. Stretch. 
Do Chi Gong. It seems obvious, 
but sit down. Close your eyes. 
Reach into the abyss. Tap into 
the divinity, the Oversoul, 
the Muse of the Mind. Let 
your thoughts spill onto paper. 

Let’s pretend you are the newest star. 
Rescue your mind from a ditch. 
Be aware a certain absurdity attends 
outside the door. Awaken. 
You are the healing waters. 
Close the door, but don’t close 
your mind. Come find your 
own blue sky.

Listen to Willie Nelson sing Blue Skies
