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.

It is not enough
just to do enough
to get by.

Enough is enough.

What do we overlook?

What instances or occasions
do we choose to not observe, acknowledge, or
try to comprehend?

How can we ignore the shifting beauty
of the leaves, the final days of colour before
wicked winds, a nightly chill, turn our landscape
to a humble grey.

We will feel the deficit, unnoticed in the entirety.

What happens when we do not stop
to pay attention to the slight motion of a raindrop
in a puddle on a drizzly day, or look past
the kaleidoscope haze as errant drops diffuse
light on the lenses of your eyeglasses.

Our vision is not clear to the reality of
people passing by on the sidewalk, on the way
to work or school, perhaps paying as little attention
to the surroundings as we do.
