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.

Arbitrary Illusions
Posted on November 30, 2022 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

Daily we make up our lies with
pieces of the truth, indemnifying
ourselves from the current reality.
Hesitancy takes time, various stages
of indecision come back to hinder.
Arbitrary illusions provide a depth
only the imagination will grant.
Seize the moment, the inspiration,
in the obvious unaccounted for.
Can you face up to the falsities?
Time heals all wounds, but only if
you loosen the bandages, only if
you believe you have been hurt.

Mondays are just young Fridays

Morning fog limits perspective.
As much surprise as wonder,
as isolating as illuminating,
we naturally want to see further.
Your vantage point stays the same.
Captivated throughout the day,
you may well stand where you are,
only the focal point broadens.Daylight eventually finds its way,
you can easily see the difference.
Darkness will come, it always does,
the view will be different tomorrow.
