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 . . .

these days

tomorrow is another chance

but what about today?

Mondays are just young Fridays

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.

hold the image
speak the silence
feel the clarity

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

What You Make It

Posted on April 27, 2017 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

Make decisions,
make mistakes, make them
honestly, make them safe.
Make a ruckus, make amends,
make a choice, make
more friends.
Make a difference, make a
mark, make it better,
make a start.
Make out,
make love, don’t make haste.
Make a sound; make a statement,
make less waste. Make it better,
make up your mind,
make it matter, make up for
lost time. Make it clear, but don’t
make it tough. Make a little extra,
at least
make enough. Don’t
make it too quickly, but
make it on time (you don’t have to
make it rhyme). You might not always
make it home, but you will
make more of your life, by
making it your own.

April 27th is Poem in Your Pocket Day
a day to celebrate poetry by selecting
a poem, carrying it with you, and
sharing it with friends and strangers
wherever the day takes you. In the
workplace, coffee shop, shopping mall,
or out on the street, poetry can brighten
up the world around you. You may have
a favorite poem you wish to share, but I
offer you this one, in case it’s not handy.
