Please leave a mess when you go… (playing with haiku)

each breath is a poem
says this and says it again
rhythm of moments

the pear balances
whether lying or sitting
until it’s eaten!

practice now, breathe now
sit and you may find some peace
things will fall apart

but they will not break
sunsets, oranges, lovers
don’t anticipate

things break without mo-
ving, just watch the children grow
its OK, start a-

gain… mind breaks, breath flows
a student is going home
leaving footprints here

coming or going
just so long as you tread through
mud, source of your life
