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 . . .

Look

When it’s not right, we see
only what is wrong instead
of trying to make it better.

Look past the faults.
See possibilities.

Keep moving forward.

Mondays are just young Fridays

So, I make mistakes.
   An oversight or three, here and there, or an error or lack of judgment can (and will) happen. My lack of foresight simply happens.
   We do not learn from our mistakes, but rather we learn from the experience.
   You cannot prepare yourself for all probabilities knowing a mistake is a likely possibility.
   Pay attention.
   Experience comes from noticing what you are paying attention to.

That Moon

 

Maybe this Moon

with the power it bleeds

      will illuminate more

      unnecessary violence

     and greed.

       Maybe this Moon

         has memories

    it simply cannot forget.

       Some of us will relate

    while others regret.

  Maybe that Moon knows

        what it is all worth

   and sets an example

       for those looking up

         from this earth.

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

Sense And Scentuality

Posted on August 7, 2021 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

                         Scant silken stream
                                               dividing line
                                         between reality
                                        and sensuality
                                                         softly
                                            floating upwards
                                                filling space
                                           between the ribs
                                                inhale
                                            sandalwood
                                   lavender or patchouli
                                       jasmine
                                     at night
                                ease the mind
                                  wipe away
                                     remains of the day
                                        you can’t stop
                                              time
                                      but you can
                                         make it
                                            bearable
                                               scent
                                      the swiftest route
                                           to memory
                                             or comfort
                                          as you retreat
                                            from
                                         negative forces
                                  the essence of the moment
                                           returns
                                            a gentle
                                        equilibrium
                                          meditation
                                        moments
                                     for the self
                                         marginalize
                                   negative influences
                                               neutralize
                                  behaviours and patterns
                                                 creating
                                         an environment
                                              of hope
                                           and awareness
                               strengthen the senses
                                               soften
                                          your world
