Just some thoughts...

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

The Twist that Ties You Down

Think of the world you carry within you
Rainer Maria Rilke
Where will you sail today 

Where will you fly?

What will you leave behind

As you drift toward the sky?

Wait!  What is there so heavy 

That is holding you down?

Ah!   It is there on your face!  

 It is that scowl-that frown
No one can soar with their mouth in a twist

Why that is the very first thing on a very short list

Of things that will keep you from finding your way

To the beauty, the adventure, that awaits you today!

So, smile for goodness sake! 
and let's get your show on the road!
and that's poetiquejustis
A joyful heart is good medicine, But a broken spirit dries up the bones.
Proverbs 17:22
