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 if we woke
      and time or distance
 was not
    relative, as if
then was now,
here was there, and
          you could see
                    or be anything?
If you rose to a dream
       or a scene, what if
or what now would you do?
      When you wake
 as you should,
          tell me what then,
                            if you could.

Om Shanti

may your spirit
                     find peace
  and your mind
receive the clarity due
with gentle thoughts
          guiding you
                 through days
when clouds encroach
   on your sky
and trees cannot offer
    the comfort
                  of a shadow
reach out for the light
    reach up
                and find
your own sunshine
          let it burn for all
   your hopes and with
all your strength
                 and stillness

           om shanti
