life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

parts of whole

look at love

how it tangles
with the one fallen in love 

look at spirit
how it fuses with earth
giving it new life
why are you so busy
with this or that or good or bad
pay attention to how things blend 

why talk about all
the known and the unknown
see how the unknown merges into the known 

why think separately
of this life and the next
when one is born from the last 

look at your heart and tongue
one feels but deaf and dumb
the other speaks in words and signs 

look at water and fire
earth and wind
enemies and friends all at once 

the wolf and the lamb
the lion and the deer
far away yet together 

look at the unity of this
spring and winter
manifested in the equinox 

you too must mingle my friends
since the earth and the sky
are mingled just for you and me 

be like sugarcane
sweet yet silent
don’t get mixed up with bitter words 

my beloved grows right out of my own heart
how much more union can there be
