tomorrow is another chance
but what about today?

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 fog limits perspective.
As much surprise as wonder,
as isolating as illuminating,
we naturally want to see further.Your vantage point stays the same.
Captivated throughout the day,
you may well stand where you are,
only the focal point broadens.Daylight eventually finds its way,
you can easily see the difference.
Darkness will come, it always does,
the view will be different tomorrow.11/28/2022 j.g.l.

Poetry arrives where you are, amid
the random contradictions and
littering the scenery.
If allowed, a poem takes you
where it needs to be.
If ignored, you remain suspended in
a state of malignant bewilderment,
unable to see past the
bullshit and idioms served up
by the tragically self-absorbed
merchants of fear.
If fortunate, you will be united
with the common sense and justice
erupting from each line or stanza.
Until then there is bad television,
taxes, and weak take-out coffee.
