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 . . .

Which way are you going?
What route will you follow?
Where will it take you?

Mondays are just young Fridays

The clock and the calendar move
forward incrementally, naturally
(as it should be) from a darker
winter we can’t leave behind to
something resembling spring.
In-between our seasons we take
whatever we can, where we are.
We have little choice.
A less-than-enthusiastic forecast
glares at me from a mobile device,
with greater chance of soakers
more than once or twice in the
week ahead as atmospheric rivers
come down to earth (a convenient
excuse for all it’s worth).
April showers still to come, as it
happens, as it is always done, we
keep moving forward step-by-step
mainly in spite of the weather.

of interest

your knowledge is
your currency

save up for what
you need or desire

there is interest
in your wisdom

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

April Is Poetry Month

Posted on April 1, 2016 by j.g.lewis // 2 Comments


Whisper of Truth

We strive or struggle
in this tempestuous atmosphere,
    mindful of words measured
      or immediate,
and whispered as intended.

Velocity and circumstance differ.
    Interpretation, introspection,
    the memories remain
         as we see
               this poetry we breathe.

Rhythm and patterns suggest
    scattered thoughts,
unparalleled emotions, and
       a decency to remind
    the heart to remember.

April, every April,
but especially this April
is Poetry Month
        Read, write, recite,
Celebrate poetry & poets.

There is poetry
everywhere. It belongs
Find some you like,
don’t be afraid to share.
Poetry. Write your own
should you care.

Each day, every day,
every April
(but especially this April)
there will be new poetry.
Every day. Right here
               Find your way.
