life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

adventure calling 


All we want is a path

just visible

in the new growth

of the forest floor.
We do not require

a thread of cairns

to mark the route.                                                         

Leave it to us  


to find our way across

the swollen stream

to get our feet wet

if we must, to
blow past the bend 

in the switchback

misread the map

become aware
too late that we 

are lost, to move 

this way and that

kneel in the dirt
to sit at last cross-

legged in the dusk 

while the stars emerge

one by one each one


a blessing, to sleep

beneath those stars

and in the first light

find our way back
or forward it won’t

matter because we

will have found it

and can call it ours


Call It Ours by Rick Kempa
