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.

Live your humanity; express yourself with care and compassion for others. We are all human.
Play on. We will all benefit from the chorus of your constant melody.

As It Will
Posted on February 25, 2023 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

Winter will not wait

for soft scarves, warm parkas,

or Mom’s hot chocolate.

Mindful of nothing, but itself,

Winter comes as it goes,

as it wants, as it will.

Unexpected, unexcused,

an unrepentant breath leaves

a deep trail of icey footprints

across our psyche. Winter waits

for when we are most vulnerable.

Winter cannot not wait.
