life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

laugh again

You left all these knotted words

tangled and broken into pieces

sitting behind my eyes turned blue

waiting to flow out

into the heart of the blue world

blue is the color of my true loves soul

the color of this bruised and hopeful heart of mine

all the blue notes and blue spaces creating the music I love most

blue silence comes to the door of the ocean and pulls me out of myself

into the bluest skies and the bluest starry night

angels wear robes of purest blue in the presence of my enemies

enemies who then become my friends as we sing the blues together

because blue is the color of friendship

and blue is the color of my voice speaking truth

when I sing I hope you feel blue velvet against your skin

my lips tracing patterns of love into your blood of blue-red

I come from bluegrass and my feet are stained with the sheer delight of the colors of my youth

barefoot and freckled face laughing with the yellow sun and blue wind in the high oak trees

I’m always ready to go adventuring into the wild blue yonder

always ready to share all our gathered stories around the blue flamed fire

ready to touch the earth with bare naked hands and blue suede shoes

ready to stand, as blue as you, in the falling snow

ready to play games in blue channels of grace

shouting with blue flames of sheer laughter

laying in pale blue hammocks of grace

ready to turn a new shade of blue at a moments notice

ready to fall into the unlimited shades of the midnight skies

Following blazing stars into the places where I can find every shade of every color life has to give


Amy Lloyd

If you wish to glimpse inside a human soul and get to know a man, don’t bother analyzing his ways of being silent, of talking, of weeping, of seeing how much he is moved by noble ideas; you will get better results if you just watch him laugh. If he laughs well, he’s a good man.

— Fyodor Dostoyevsky
