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 . . .

Mondays are just young Fridays

So, I make mistakes.
   An oversight or three, here and there, or an error or lack of judgment can (and will) happen. My lack of foresight simply happens.
   We do not learn from our mistakes, but rather we learn from the experience.
   You cannot prepare yourself for all probabilities knowing a mistake is a likely possibility.
   Pay attention.
   Experience comes from noticing what you are paying attention to.

That Moon


Maybe this Moon

with the power it bleeds

      will illuminate more

      unnecessary violence

     and greed.

       Maybe this Moon

         has memories

    it simply cannot forget.

       Some of us will relate

    while others regret.

  Maybe that Moon knows

        what it is all worth

   and sets an example

       for those looking up

         from this earth.

it was so

     scarcely we remember
       humble beginnings

   the when
                the where

     not consequential

   the why
        a true miracle

     for a time
     it was so

                 until it wasn’t

there are no humble endings

     but we are humbled
     by even its existence

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

Soulful Words

Poetry: the language of life.
  A rhyme or rhythm like the days themselves, any time of the week or year, poetry is honesty.
  April is Poetry Month. That the month begins under a full moon is as exciting as it is inspiring.
  This is a time for open thoughts, reflection, and communication with those you love, those you don’t, and with your own self.
  It’s wonderful that Poem Kubili, which has been silent for too long, is coming back; a reawakening of sorts. I look forward to writing again with my international friends. Poetry matters. You matter.
  Poetry Month is always exciting for me. Yes, I often write poetry and prose (some may call it an obsession, but for the entire month of April, I write nothing else.
  Each day, every day, you will find my poetic thoughts here on
  Please drop by when you can as I share my life, my love, and my honesty.
