life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

with a little love

Authentic love is where two solitude’s border, protect and salute each other.
– Rilke


I give you an emptiness,

I give you a plenitude,

unwrap them carefully.
— one’s as fragile as the other —

and when you thank me
I’ll pretend not to notice the doubt in your voice
When you say they’re just what you wanted.

Put them on the table by your bed.
When you wake in the morning
they’ll have gone through the door of sleep
into your head.

Wherever you go
they’ll go with you and
wherever you are they’ll wander,

smiling about the fullness
you can’t add to and the emptiness
that you can’t fill.

Presents by Norman MacCaig


….We must “protect” each other because we realize that the solitude that each one has is the source of inner wealth and inner revelation; we “salute” because we understand that the work of solitude, the work that goes into solitude, the heart work, the yearning, the longing, the deep contemplation of one’s gifts and one’s faults, is a sacred work that is the secret foundation of healthy relationship. In too many relationships in our current narcissistic model, what threatens the person most is the solitude of the other.

In a true evolutionary relationship, what can exhilarate one person the most is the other’s solitude, because we know that solitude has the potential to make them a billionaire of generosity, of insight, and of creativity.

The Seven Requirements Of Love  BY ANDREW HARVEY (edited)


There is no end to transformation, because divine love is infinite.
