79. Now Aware

When I peeked into my mind the first time
I was shocked to find
A babbling brook
When I took a closer look
I saw streams of dreams
I was really shaken
When it dawned on me
I'd just awakened
Now aware
I watched my mind meander 
Here, there and everywhere
When my attention tether tightened
And grew taut
Now aware
I breathed a mindful breath
To remind myself
To remain awake
Instead of drifting off to sleep again
In an endless flow of roaming thought
