life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

airy ponderings

Respectfully given,

exalted being

full of grace,

remember to forget that:

surrender struggles to catch it’s breath,

then falls soft

as evening prayers at twilight,

gathering into the corners of our hearts

before falling full onto the center of our living circle, free and happy as Friday night.

next morning’s sun fills us,

each day, each season.

nurture moves with grace, evolving slowly thru

our caring hands,

our grieving hearts,

our shared experience,

our acts of courage,

the healing salt of our tears.

with pieces of our true love,

we fly flags,

of prayer,

of peace,

of poems,

of our own making

to heal the worlds –

within us/

without us.

we allow –

simply complex.

we understand –

clearly unclear.

we stand and fill our world with the beauty

of sound,

of hum,

of voice,

of music,

protecting us

from lesser gods,

the terror all around.

love is the shield,

love is the answer,

love is the choice,

love is our glory,

our salvation,

crowning us

sons and daughters

of the King.

at times,

in spite of our broken pieces,

our refusal to believe,

even our darkened hearts.


isn’t it?


Amy Lloyd

You thought your inhalation

was nothing but air.

Now, through the Master’s grace,

you know that every breath

is an ocean of stars.

You thought that your mind

was an electric ghost

in the neurons of your brain.

Now, through the Master’s grace,

your body floats like a thistle

in the blue sky of awareness.

Your heart overflows the golden

galactic cup.

There is no difference at all

between silence and creation

when you drown in the Master’s grace.

Your stillness is seva,

the storm-like power that

sweeps the earth clean.

Even when you sleep

that eye does not close

whose gaze is your Being.

Now dream and sing, dance and cry,

die and be shaped like a tear again

in the womb of a fearless love.
