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 Rub

It is good to rub and polish our brain against that of others.  
Michel de Montaigne

Some people are going to rub you the wrong way

They get your back up

Your feather’s ruffled

And who wants to walk around like that?

Better idea?
Consider it an invitation to a spa

Since it is going to happen anyway- 
you may as well put it to good use

a treatment for the psyche

Use the “rub” to get rid of a callous on your heart

Or a dry patch in your soul

Just think of it as life’s little loofas

 a spa time for the soul
and suddenly....there is peace

Prayer of Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.
and that's poetiquejustis
