ik 94 for April 2015 wp

ik 94
for April 2015

Been there and done that
in two languages; now
for grandchildren

the more alphabets; the more
words to communicate with

Inspired by: Teach a child the alphabet.
from: Instant Karma by Barbara Ann Kipfer
8,879 ways to give yourself and others
good fortune right now.

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.

ik 48
for 3.13 March 2015

dollar signs and bling
perhaps make music stars sing
who are they I say?

not into awards shows for
the sake of recognition

grandchildren’s laughter
is sweet music to my ears
their hugs my rewards

your inner child too
deserves the same attention
as the grandchildren

the childless adult too
can volunteer bringing joy

10.10 …bounce…

http://chevrefeuilleshaikushuukan.blogspot.com/2014/10/haiku-shuukan-25-youngsters.html
(I finally remembered to visit this Friday haiku meme!)

10.10 …bounce…

younger we were then,
yesterday…blind to aging –
though grandchildren bounce

Note: After a long happy marriage
who remembers the struggles?
We laugh, he and I that occasionally
we can now get ‘senior’ discounts.
