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 . . .

damn truth

We do not touch the money, now
only digits on a screen. Ingredients
in our foods unknown, or what
scientists contribute to the scheme.
Price at the pump keeps going up,
still our cars can’t seem
to get enough.
Politicians are not worth knowing, or
deeds in which they partake, sin or
scandal widely-known, we
elect them anyway.
Damn truth be told,
between utter lies; they won’t salute
the dead, so many innocents die.
We won’t wash our hands, but
still waste the water
and share the blame.
We don’t care if we don’t want to,
our days continue just the same.

sins and sorrows

April is Poetry Month

Mondays are just young Fridays

Waiting for the darkness, but
not from the night. Waiting
for darkness to squelch the light
of the day.
Rare and strange and still
somewhat familiar, the Moon
caught crossing a path,
expectedly today.
Vision enigmatic, but solemn
and static. Naturally occurring.
We live with the darkness
however unnerving.

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

Sense And Scentuality

Posted on August 7, 2021 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

                         Scant silken stream
                                               dividing line
                                         between reality
                                        and sensuality
                                                         softly
                                            floating upwards
                                                filling space
                                           between the ribs
                                                inhale
                                            sandalwood
                                   lavender or patchouli
                                       jasmine
                                     at night
                                ease the mind
                                  wipe away
                                     remains of the day
                                        you can’t stop
                                              time
                                      but you can
                                         make it
                                            bearable
                                               scent
                                      the swiftest route
                                           to memory
                                             or comfort
                                          as you retreat
                                            from
                                         negative forces
                                  the essence of the moment
                                           returns
                                            a gentle
                                        equilibrium
                                          meditation
                                        moments
                                     for the self
                                         marginalize
                                   negative influences
                                               neutralize
                                  behaviours and patterns
                                                 creating
                                         an environment
                                              of hope
                                           and awareness
                               strengthen the senses
                                               soften
                                          your world
