It is hard to know
what to say, or
how to say it,
so often we
Silence stops the
but it does not
stop the thoughts.

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 . . .
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.
I'm like a pencil;
Still I write.

Through the trees, to fields
beyond bricks and mortar,
construction and glass, ego
Past the city’s everyday, where
each aspect becomes
all too familiar. The same traffic,
routine, panhandlers, politicians
and common sin.
Get away. A highway
leads anywhere beyond borders
and the cost of complacency.
There is never clarity.
Nothing is exactly as it
has seemed. Find your peace,
share your dreams.
Today is World Poetry Day.
Where politicians and ideology
can try to build walls and place
boundaries on compassion and
information, poetry can (and will)
rise above those ruthless bastards
to ensure a human voice will
always be heard.
