Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Did You Have an Appointment?

If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment.

Henry David Thoreau

Day by day

Our calendar is filled with appointments

Appointments with work

Appointments with friends

But the appointment that seems to keep showing up

even if it is never in your outlook

Is disappointment

You try so hard

You believe so strongly

You keep your hopes up and your head down

And still

There it is

Smack in the middle of your calendar


How did that get there?

You never made that appointment with disappointment!

Well, invite it in,

for goodness sake!

Do not leave it cooling its heels out there.....hanging around your life!

Have a chat

Have a cup of joe

Talk things over

And then politely, show disappointment to the door

Appointment over

Moving on

And that’s poetiquejustis
