Monkey Mind


Choosy mothers choose jif

Don’t let the door hit you on the way out

Mind your manners

Take a breath

Random thoughts

all mulling around

I’m looking to pitch my tent

to find solid ground

But am lost within

the swirl of my thoughts

Jumping from my childhood to the future

Sandwiched in today

Where am I now, I ask?

What do I need?

What am I feeling?

What do I see?

I can’t tell what’s mine

With my emotions roiling around

And what belongs to stories

From last night’s movie

Just like the witch in Oz

Random thoughts pass by my windows

Where am I going?

Is it going to rain today?

My have-to’s come up

With what’s on my calendar

This is truly a jungle

With my thoughts free to wander

Breathe I remind myself

Take a breath in and out
