life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

changing winds

.
… turned Inward
..

they
will, should
and all,
be comfort zones

your fire
for the outside —
the one little picture of whomever

their bill of pleasures

and my
inside game

of the opposite
but same extremes

and sloped playing field

crying for the
leveler — where are you

you’re expansive
with your details

your details,
with beauty, expand

I stayed here
where you intersected —
ejecting the too long, to land
at
the just long enough

to liken
the interior- with healing

then
remembering fondly, a day

when
in the same breath

you needed
always
to mention
power..

This

after the last straw

has changed everything

about your comfort zoned life

and the free radical of your new way of living

has established a tentative foothold

on the sheer face of the rock

you find yourself

hanging

within the jagged spaces

between the silences

suddenly you see there growing near

within the cracks you hang from

a green vine

with beautiful fruit

ready for your hungriest longing

luscious

calling

healing

bountiful

filling

loving

living

deep

juicy

It is not easy to reach, yet

you spend your last ounce of strength

trying

reaching

stretching

claiming your prize

and there you are

forgetting your precarious position on this mountain

eating with sheer delight

juice running down chins and elbows

until, even the stones, fill with joy

and laugh with delight at our moxie

tomorrow we will bravely face our sorrow

and allow our salt to run

to heal our wounds

further up this climb we will feel what we need to feel

and let those emotions have their way with us

until we embrace the mystery

then throw caution to the very winds we stand in the center of

and open our arms wide as we can  to life
