life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life


The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you

Don’t go back to sleep!
You must ask for what you really want. 

Don’t go back to sleep!
People are going back and forth

across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,

The door is round and open
Don’t go back to sleep!

    – Rumi

Your secret plan

You work in me powerfully 

revealing stone by stone

Your kingdom within

Deep calling to deep

I am the eternal explorer

ever changing 

ever learning

ever exfoliating 

ever new born

ever new adventures

ever thresholds of becoming 

ever doorways slightly open

revealing what they reveal

usually just a glimpse

ever fog veiling or

unveiling the next stair on the ever-circling staircase

Your calling is for keeps

unrelenting passion

till the cows come home

till the fat lady sings

and the stars go blue

ever calling me higher

to be my best self

It’s a wonder I can’t easily explain

It’s really all wonder

It’s not my natural way

to keep freely stepping into this magnificent way

to freely surrender my stubborn heart to love

but I have no choice

I have been shown love beyond my humble understanding 

I can only stumble imperfectly

but wholeheartedly

 in my attempts 

to respond

I do it all for love
