Monkey Mind, Monkey Do

monkey mind
keeps me awake
mulling, thinking
worrying, wondering
tossing, turning
trying to get
comfortable..(as if
that would help)

peek out from under
sleep mask…is the
sun rising yet…
no use in trying
get up to read
the overhead fan
creaks then quiets
finished my book
wow, it was good
now what do I do
accept that this
happens when I’m
feeling unsettled
it too shall pass
deep breath in
slow breath out
interject mantras
to shush my mind
aw, so what
it’s just another
sleepless night
