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.

We tire ourselves out.
We struggle with that
which we don’t take
the time to understand,
but we should. No one
knows our fears and
foibles better than our
self. We deal with it
day in and day out, but
do we ever completely
acknowledge all that we
know, or do we simply
ignore it?

Meaningful Dialogue
Posted on September 23, 2017 by j.g.lewis // 1 Comment

If I were to write you a letter,
what would you want me to say?
Would you be content to read
about the weather, would you like
to know of my days?

Could you relate to my trials and
tribulations, would you settle for my
admissions untold? It is possible to
build some sort meaningful dialogue
as life, as we know it, unfolds?

Aren’t we all are seeking greater
answers, better solutions, or reasons
to understand why? If I were to
write you a letter, would you
even bother sending back a reply?

Precious Autumn
Posted on September 22, 2017 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

Autumn. What a
beautiful word. Two syllables
that float from your mouth.
Mature. Earthy. Humble.
You can’t rush it; already
it moves too quickly
on its own. Perhaps this is why
memories of Autumn are so clear.
Crisp, concentrated, captured
in such little time.
Winter lasts so long, and
Spring takes a while before
it is even presentable. Summer
is always unpredictable, but
precious Autumn, arrives
and then leaves us enough life,
colour, and anticipation
to see us through
another year.
It can’t wait, but I do.
