certain things can wait

.(dishes in the sink)

people need attention first

.(little ones grow fast)

leave perfection be

.(all things have beauty)

let nature show you perfect
forms which have dimples and flaws

each life progresses

.(in each season)

do what you can – assist

.(feed the birds)

but enjoy the ride

.(love life daily)

Karma is cause and effect. Dharma means cosmic law.
Yoga is enlightenment through movement and Tao is the
practice of acting in harmony with the fundamental essence
of everything you encounter.

Note: my haiku (or other forms) are my interpretations
or of how I might put the inspirational sentence
into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.

so its good to as stated

rearranging them
all those things, does not change their
volume – they must go…

too good homes – collections all –
photograph some, keep others

even slow progress
is some; tomorrow is a
fresh start – get the broom…

a river of stones
those small pebbles, they started
years ago… have grown

daily meanderings sing
some loud, some calmly silent

perhaps they will lead
to my beloved ocean –
joy filled salted tears

there across the street
unrelated elders wait
they notice each day

their bones predict the weather
they recognize your routine

include your neighbor
as you would wish – smile, wave
there close to your home
.
age
is just
one way to
count the passing of
time

pause in any place
in any given moment
refocus and see

close your eyes and look inward
where rainbows illuminate

see and refocus
in any given moment
place the perfect pause

time to engage the
tack hammer, picture hook;
a bare wall awaits

too many framed photos are
still packed in boxes, want light…
