mama says (haiku ~ troiku)

mama says
don’t talk with your mouth full
mind your manners

mind your manners
opening the passenger door
for his new bride



tossing and turning
robbed of sweet slumber
out of mind

tossing and turning
thoughts of too many should’s
prisoner of self-doubts

robbed of sweet slumber
counting ten thousand sheep
all night long

out of mind
lovers’ broken hearts
out of sight heals

breathe in awareness
breathe out mindless chatter
mindfulness frees
