life notes; flaws and all

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
well-rounded,
other times
dull or
occasionally
broken.
Still I write.

If we write a little more will we finally see the pint we are trying to make?
   Will we uncover the truth hidden by our emotions, or will our true feelings be blocked by the need to wholly express ourselves? It can happen.
   We struggle with words.
   We fumble with our thoughts, raw and on the page before us, and we cannot make any sense of what we want to say.
   Our journals are full of thoughts, pages, stanzas, lines, and words. Some have been erased, some are illegible.
   It gets messy.
   Still, we want to write our way out of this mess.

       The night
accepts the silence
   appreciates
   the soft, steady breath
      of lovers
      and dogs.

   New Moon
hows as no moon can.
       High resolution
   darkness softening
hard edges
   and difficult lives.

     Here we are
   part of the silence,
        immune to
   time and temperature
        and words
       once spoken.

Negotiation
Posted on July 26, 2022 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

You truly learn about your behaviours once they are altered.
   You think more abut your behaviours as you alter them.
   Mindset, for a period, is a negotiation. Negotiation is a behaviour.
   Once you cease negotiating, you are better able to feel how your behaviours impact everything around you.
   Be gentle with yourself as you struggle to find your place.
