life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

gently does it

Open the passage,

lay down the struggle

and lean into Beauty


the tangles to


their weary dance


fall to ground


the sweet

fragrance of

rose oil



back to Love

Let Her have her way with you….


~ Flora Aube

You are turned wraith. Your supple, flitting hands,

As formless as the night wind’s moan,

Beckon across the years, and your heart’s pain

Fades surely as a stainèd stone.

And yet you will not let me rest, crying

And calling down the night to me

A thing that when your body moved and glowed,

Living, you could not make me see.

Lean down your homely, mist-encircled head

Close, close above my human ear,

And tell me what of pain among the dead—

Tell me, and I will try to hear.


To Jake by Eunice Tietjens

Some days I am not sure if my faith is riddled with doubt, or whether, graciously, my doubt is riddled with faith. And yet, I continue to live in a world the way a religious person lives in the world. I keep living in a world that I know to be enchanted and not left alone. I doubt, I am uncertain, I am restless, prone to wander. And yet glimmers of holy keep interrupting my gaze.


Lauren Winner, Still

You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.

— Mandy Hale
