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.

Some days

Some days you just have
to sit and think for a while.
What are you dealing with?

We all have things
we have to do, the chores,
responsibilities, and mindful
pursuits. Some days it
doesn’t come easy and you
tire of the effort you make to
keep things moving. Some
days it is tough, and tomorrow
you might have to do the
same things you did today,
or yesterday. Sometimes
progress is just showing up.

It is not same. We may use
  identical words, but
      the meaning differs.
   Our experience should be
   distinguishable.   We all
have a voice. Understand.
         If you claim my words
            as yours,
               you steal my breath.
 I will not let go. You will not
    lose my meaning, but only
       show your true depth.
         Have you no courage
         to speak for yourself?
