like anything else
your telephone is a tool
to be wisely used

landlines or cellphones do not
need to be glued to your ear

nor do outside sales
have to have a gripping sway
on how you live your life

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.

Additional Note: Still aggrieved with telemarketers.
Got four calls yesterday, and ignored them all!
Thought when I had time, for fun I looked them up 🙂

as a grandparent
I’m taking another turn –
it is easier

knowing that I am not waking
in the middle of the night

food is a feast for
all of one’s senses, basics yes –
boil water, good

have fun and experiment –
pretty plates can satisfy

hunger for body,
presentation and sizzle
just add spice to life

thinking of this spring
…must start over, snow covers
purple dwarf iris…

outside work will have to wait
broom, mop can still waltz inside

one can imagine
star life with peaceful intent,
graceful intellect

karma, dharma, yoga and
tao can really be much more

than just fictional
stories or movies gripping
the fear of one’s heart

While able
Over the years
Reach a stable account – so you can
Kick back and actually relax

sort of doing that again
second time around

sometimes it is easier
other times just different

second time around
hugs and kisses building trust
been there doing that
