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 . . .

Mondays are not young Fridays

Where you are is not where you will always be, physically, spiritually, emotionally and fundamentally.
Even your location will change, even if you stay in the same place (few of us do). Forward is not always a destination or direction, but rather a state of being.
Where will you go today?

future progress

It is often history that clouds our judgment, and even prevents us from seeing the true and right path we must take going forward.

   The steps we have already made, even those unplanned, play a meaningful role in the direction we have chosen. But, they do not always have to chart the course of future progress.

   Progress, yes, it is what we must do, even unknowingly.

Important

The coldest morning of the winter
reminds you what is truly important:
– a warm parka
– garbage mitts
– a positive attitude
– good coffee

Spring is coming.
So is the weekend.

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

April is Poetry Month

Posted on April 1, 2015 by j.g.lewis // 1 Comment

Pour out your emotions,
throw down the match.
The page will burn.
Charred words spread
as cinders in the wind,
settling amidst the
deceit and detritus
obscuring our lives.
Beauty when they land,
a benevolence from
where they originate, 
each word whole, and
true, and self-sustaining.
                                                                                  j.g.l.

April is Poetry Month.
I will live and breathe poetry
each day this month. My daily
breath will include bits and
pieces, a few lines, full prose,
stanzas, or just a couple of words.
Some will stay only for a day,
others will remain (click on a
‘a daily breath’ for archives).
Check back as often as you like,
I will be here, as will my words . . .
