life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

let nothing be the call

Nothingness is the sister of possibility. It makes an urgent space for that which is new, surprising, and unexpected. When you feel nothingness and emptiness gnawing at your life, there is no need to despair. This is a call from your soul, awakening your life to new possibilities.

– John O’Donohue

Briana Saussy

We hurry through the so-called boring things

in order to attend to that which we deem

more important, interesting.

Perhaps the final freedom will be a recognition
that everything in every moment is essential
and that nothing at all is important.

~ Helen Luke

Let’s be nothing

You and I

let’s stand together

Souls naked

skin removed

take me into you

I will do the same

We will be fog

Rising as Mist

You will become me

as our hearts become one

I will Fade into You

nothing for eternity

everything for the days after


Amy Lloyd



quiet enough

to allow for the next

heart found still beating

in a little ravine

descent — shush

— it’s fine

it’s precisely the shopping

things around

can’t be anymore

lost — the ability

to touch and listen


— the trying to reach

and bend

new normal

is a pool on the floor

previous ways in the moment

saw sunset

the deep saw depth charges

how about you

recall everywhere research


marvel at every proof —

the heart’s this or it’s that

— and they

all but nailed it

the hurt


me I’m waiting

like the person said

to be led

away from

this focus they first advised

trying not to think

that far ahead

— for a


waiting to be led away

any takers

fulfill the knots

to what was legacy


up there ahead

a levitation is in progress


in the rafters

oh my

she just may be

Life is not passing you by.

Life is inviting you in.

Inviting you into the simple and

sudden moments of quiet,

yet invigorating bliss that veer

on the wind and into your stilled body,

sending tingles through your spirit.

Life is not passing you by.

Life is drawing you close.

Pulling you in and calling you towards

an awakening spark that will ignite

the purest of imaginative thought

and vision into being.

Life is not overlooking you,

underestimating you,

or merely passing through.

Life is subtly requesting you take all

you’ve held safely within and

give it room to be birthed

into creative expression.

No, life has not heartlessly given up on you.

Life is graciously standing by.


Susan Frybort Brown


Wonder is the heaviest element on the periodic table. Even a tiny fleck of it stops time.
