a daily breath...

A thought du jour, my daily breath includes collected and conceived observations, questions of life, fortune cookie philosophies, reminders, messages of peace and simplicity, unsolicited advice, inspirations, quotes and words that got me thinking. They may get you thinking too . . .

communication

Sadly, our voice
is not always
strong, or not always
there ,when it
is needed.

It is hard to know
what to say, or
how to say it,
so often we
remain silent.

Silence stops the
process of
communication,
but it does not
stop the thoughts.

Mondays are just young Fridays

A sign I’ve been glancing at, daily, since I noticed it a week back at a regular coffee stop where I try to begin my day with a dark roast cup of bravery.
   I try to take the time, every morning, to scribble out my current considerations, deliberations, and contemplations on images and memories that have come to me in my dreams and in reality.
   If your first meal of the day is the most important, shouldn’t your first thoughts be as well?
   Take time to write them down. It’s important. What you are thinking affects how you continue to navigate your self through the coming hours or weeks.
   “The bravest thing you can be is yourself.”
   How much courage is required to make it through the remainder of the day? Is a single cup of coffee enough to provide the fortitude required to step further into the day?
   It’s a good start.

       Often we find promise
in the unexpected, only to be
   disappointed by the reality
          that presents itself.

    Tomorrow lacks the
certainty of yesterday,
but leaves enough room
       for hope.

What will this day provide?

I'm like a pencil;
sometimes sharp,
most days
well-rounded,
other times
dull or
occasionally
broken.
Still I write.

miracle2

 A mix of emotions, shadows 
          of friendships past,
               promises unfulfilled,
          and
            slight hints of sorrow
 obscure the judgment required.
              Dawn calls attention
       to matters at hand, a signal
    to push aside frustrations
                        and rise above
             the tedium.
           Recognize the wonder.
              Realize both the
          true vast colour
             hiding
               behind the shades
            and what can
                                 be found in
                 this fundamentally
                      miraculous day.

November Rain

rain2

wet pavement
                          and leaves
      incense for a time
      the scent reaching for
reminders
              when and how
                    november rain
  washing away the silence
              striking down fear
we sit
saying nothing
feeling
        all has been forgotten
all we know is real
you want to believe
     despite
what you tell yourself
confusing confusion with
       wanderlust
             and bewilderment
truth will last
longer than the rain
washing away the silence
           pulling off the pain
                                                        j.g.l.
