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.

now of spring

   November seems
so long ago, December and
   January too.
Winter hung around
longer than it should have,
and we could only dream
of weather that could fulfill
   any sense of reason.
Now of spring, late in April,
we can finally sense a
   change in season.
   Enjoy your day.
Celebrate this time.

Ravaged by rain
tormented and
tortured with nature’s harsh breath
               Skin torn away and hanging
                          a mangled skeleton
left for dead
in the gutter                    an umbrella
                     alongside broken bottles
matchsticks and cigarette butts
a spent condom
          salt and dreams washed away
with the rain
Items which once served a purpose
now used or used up
no longer of use
                                sins and secrets
            susceptible to societal ways
     Everything once had a purpose
or a reason
                   or an excuse
    all but forgotten
                               until it rains

I know I’m not alone.

Aren’t we are all trying
to deal with something?
