Buddha Says

Every day I read the obits

I take notice of the ages

Today, a lot are older than me

This makes me think I still get chance

To out dance the piper

Buddha teaches life is impermanent

So no get use to it.


In the meantime, the days fly by

Adding another month, another year

Today, I look at my hands

And they seem more wrinkled than before

Kinda like roast chicken skin.


This makes me laugh

When I was a little girl

I used to pinch my grandpa’s arm

His skin stayed pinch

Slowly sinking back to shape on his arm.


They say what goes around comes around

Buddha teaches karma, your actions don’t disappear

It comes back to you in this lifetime or another

So watch out

Better to live in kindness and no make sassy kine.
