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 . . .

I'm like a pencil;
sometimes sharp,
most days
other times
dull or
Still I write.

What It Means
Posted on August 19, 2022 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

Is it a word we say enough
for favours, for occasions, for
gifts of time and kindness?
   Thank you.
   To strangers, family, friends
and lovers, do we express all
the gratitude we feel for both
the significant and the simple
everyday experiences we are
truly thankful for?
   Thank you: two words that
mean more than you know.
   Are we thankful enough?
   Gratitude and generosity go
hand in hand; do you express
what it means to you to the
people who need to hear it?
   Sometimes ‘Thank you’ is
not enough, but it is a start.
   Thank you.

Speak up for yourself, for others,
and for those who can’t or won’t
or don’t think for themselves.
   Don’t remain silent.
   Give voice to valid concerns and
don’t accept what some of those
bastards are trying to pass off
as truth.
   Know better.

Find Peace

I am in need of nature’s nurture; a couple of days away from the concrete and cacophony of this impatient city.
   I need to be made aware of the lack of noise and the softer surroundings Mother Nature provides.
   Will I find peace?
