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.

Don’t just look,
pay attention.
What do you see?

Maximum Emotion
Posted on January 30, 2021 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

A small space in

this magnificent sky, a

larger reason to question

why. Each rotation, every

phase, a penetrating

influence upon our days.

Full. Complete range of

motion, maximum emotion.

With whom will you share

this intense devotion?

The Moon speaks when

the moment is right,

find your way to

talk back to the night.




Month Into Month

It’s not what was said
that continues to echo.
How can you not hear
all you try to ignore?
You know less
than you did, more than
you had to. More than
you care, but you do.
It’s the secrets that hurt.
Dishonesty devolves, day
by day by day, month
into month, and still
no answers. Left out and
longing to hear the truth,
not the unsaid; unheeded,
unnoticed by few. Yet,
you know. For now.
