Morning Meditations

You will never plough a field if you only turn it over in your mind.

Irish proverb

morning meditations make me mindful
my minds a monkey

who is a maestro
in maneuvering between states of mind.

at times, moving from melancholic
to merrimental moods in just a few minutes.

at others, moving from merrimental
to melancholic in all but a few seconds.

thank goodness I’m learning
to master my mind like a monk

to keep it mired in merriment.
