life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

Here I go again… 

So, I keep finding these amazing poems (some of them my own) and I keep thinking, ‘oh man, that would be GREAT for L:a&a! Too bad I don’t do that anymore…’ 

Yesterday I continued that thought with another…’why don’t I start again?’

To that question I (after a million reasons why or why not) answered, ‘yes!’ Wooo hooo! 

So, here I am! 

Sharing my devotion… 

to life itself,

to being in the gritty-real of healing,

to finding my own ground,

my own place of joy,

that’s been my life work, 

that is my goal!


In poems I find 

my home

my ground 

my hope

my truth

my joy

my second chances

my new beginnings

my song

my silence

my grief

my healing

my love

my life

my laughter

my tears

my centre

my source

my mystery

my colors

my dignity

my grace

my foolish

my wise

my resistance 

my surrender 

my revolution 

my rebellion 

my peace 

my place

my faith

my trust 

my questions 

my serenity 

my heroes

my salvation

AL 7/2/17


I’m not sure if this will come back as a daily, but just these new returning-to-this moment is really feeling exciting! 💞 


Do you know how long this road? 

He cocked his head and asked,

I’ve been to SanTiago – 500 miles gone past

Now I sit here wondering 

how long this trip will last

another trip around the sun 

I got here pretty fast
Then she said,

Im a long road girl

I don’t count no miles

I’m a long road girl

I just count the smiles

Of all the people

Everyday

Of all the friends

Along the way

That’s all that matters

Matters too

A long road girl

Longing for a view
Do you want to sing a while? 

He bowed his head and asked,

I’ve found a tune for playing – a thousand more come fast

I’ve written you a song or two – 

that’s how our miles will pass

another trip around the sun 

The flowers will bloom at last
Then she said,

I’m a long road girl

I will sing my songs

I’m a long road girl

won’t you sing along

to all the people

Everyday

To all our friends

Along the way

That’s all that matters

Matters too

A long road girl

In love with you
Starshine to stardust

oceans to earth 

Songshine to songburst

Filling the sky

Roaddogs to roadmaps

Pathways are paved

Free-falls to freebirds

see how we fly

🎆

AL

Very glad to share the path with you, and yes, 

there will always be chocolate 💞
