life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

look where you’re standing  

Pick a crevice, 

a homey gap 

between stones 

and make it 

your own. 
Grow a life here 

from wind 


and the memories of ancients 

embedded in limestone. 
The bees will use you 

for their sweet honey. 

The rock will soften under 

your touch. 

You will draw moisture from fog 

and hold it. 

Your presence 

will build soil. 
This is all we have 

in this life 

all we own: 

a flowering 

an opening 

a gap between stones 

for tiny tender roots. 


Flowering by Linda Buckmaster
