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 not young Fridays

Where you are is not where you will always be, physically, spiritually, emotionally and fundamentally.
Even your location will change, even if you stay in the same place (few of us do). Forward is not always a destination or direction, but rather a state of being.
Where will you go today?

future progress

It is often history that clouds our judgment, and even prevents us from seeing the true and right path we must take going forward.

   The steps we have already made, even those unplanned, play a meaningful role in the direction we have chosen. But, they do not always have to chart the course of future progress.

   Progress, yes, it is what we must do, even unknowingly.

Important

The coldest morning of the winter
reminds you what is truly important:
– a warm parka
– garbage mitts
– a positive attitude
– good coffee

Spring is coming.
So is the weekend.

I'm like a pencil;
sometimes sharp,
most days
well-rounded,
other times
dull or
occasionally
broken.
Still I write.

Poem In Your Pocket

Posted on April 26, 2018 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

A Different View

I see what I see
I see you
              unfiltered
honestly

as you are
                now

I see myself
with unsettled eyes
         through
         the words

         past the lies

I see what I see
I see what I
              want to be

I see you breathe
I see you
                 believe

I would like to see
            myself
               differently

Share a poem wherever the day takes you; in the workplace, coffee shop, shopping mall, or out on the street. Poetry can brighten your world.
You may already have favorite poem, but I offer you this one in case it’s not handy.
