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

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.

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…

one
might think
dawn or dusk
are tiny moments of
day

one might think that a
minute is very small
look at dawn and dusk

every winter dawn reaches
closer to each magic dusk

one step closer to
the planting , growth and harvest
of warmer seasons

day
tiny moments that are
dawn or dusk
are large
beginnings

cleanse and renew – you.

one can strip layers
of defensive protection
by washing too much

(as in not playing in good dirt)

one can strip layers
of defensive protection
by wishing too much

(as in not facing reality)

one can strip layers
of defensive protection
by ‘dishing’ too much

(today maybe that is dissing?…’dishing the dirt’ – gossip)

mirror to recognize heart
embrace who you are

money is only one small

embrace who you are
embrace family and friends –
give to those in need
