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
well-rounded,
other times
dull or
occasionally
broken.
Still I write.

     Look ahead, or remain
where you are.
                    We can struggle
through this silence, or speak
    inconsequential dialogue
  to fill the minutes
                           and hours,
and it could lead nowhere.
        We’ve been there before.
An open door can be
        a barrier or a blessing
   Temperature and colour
           slightly the same,
  our knowledge formed
            by choices,
      shame,
    and haphazard risks
near the end
                of the day.
   Still
we dare, or we attempt,
        to interpret whispers,
     the wind,
  and dreams we create with
the accuracy of a horoscope
         and certainty
                of a lottery ticket.
     We can question
           our judgement, or
       discount it as fate.
    We’ve been here before.
Perspective
         can hold us
                wherever we are.
