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 . . .

     Morning begins it all,
yet it is much later
                    you notice
   nights become shorter
when the day is no longer.
          We see less
       than we want to, and
   know more than
          we should.
   Darkness allows silence.
        May your thoughts
            be understood.

Mondays are just young Fridays

The lush canopy of green above us seemed to take its time arriving.
   The recent sunshine, warmth, and humidity contribute to a general feeling of euphoria.
   No specifics required.
   The changing of the seasons is not lost on us; nor is the change of reasons.
   In the grand scheme of things, this feeling doesn’t last as long as it should.
   Shouldn’t we appreciate this more than we do?
   Look up. Look around.
   Think of where you are now and why you are here.

Questions of Perception

Does it get any darker if
you close your eyes?
   Can you find a solid path
through the distractions by
feeling your way through?
   You’ve been here before.
   Is this a pattern?
   What are your collective
senses telling you?
   Questions of perception
leave plenty of room. Are
you looking for answers
amidst your doubts?
   It might take serious
time to figure it all out.

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

Words For Another By Someone Else

Posted on March 9, 2018 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

by Jennifer Hillman

Wisdom through words.
Some advice I would give to anyone…of any age.
Observe, listen, and share.
I learned for observing many wise elderly and the young innocence.
With this, I collected and smiled with these steps to living.

Quiet the Mind. . .
be with the Silence
and simply listen to your heart…
follow the whispers of your truths
be bold and embrace the magic
while expanding your brilliance
in every moment,
with every breath.

Live large through creativity
share tender moments of laughter
express yourself
while you forgive often…
yourself and others.

Love Always.

Be true to you by being the uniqueness of all you be.
Trust. Love. Be. Love’s Truths.
