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.

What has changed?

Why has it changed?

Is anything the same?

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.

That Is Enough

All of us carry
the same courage, yet
we are not often called
too use it.
We are not all having
the same experience.
Each of us has our own
wisdom to explore.
or disbelieving, we
are all here, trying
to muster what it takes
to draw from
our own well.
If you
come out of this day
with nothing more
than your humility,
you have done well.
That is enough.
