a wise yogi’s timeless wisdom
is so easy to read, appreciate
and quote, in advice, to others!
and what have you done with it?
an audacious query from my little one
makes me splutter in chagrin
more, I must add, at myself!
how easy it is to mouth advice-
after reading rich experiences of another!-
yet how much more wondrous
it would be, if only one could
simply do, not parrot it!
if only! I sigh!

A re-post, since I’ve missed two days of the #Napowrimo, 2017 – National Poetry Writing Month 2017 🙂 This one is for Day#17
