mother may I?

(c) Robbie Nuwanda 2015
mother may I
take a break
sisters may I
slow on down
cousins may I
sleep and wake
in tune with moon and sun?
every day is raced away
lists are long
with oversight/s
mother may I
fail to strive
let nature drive
for 40 days?

daughter yes
do breathe and rest
if anyone is asking why
why lay by?
why go slow?
say
"I'm the mom
and I say so."

  6. Here's my "mother may I" -- may I sleep in as long as my body wants today? YES! (internal alarm goes off at 5:30 AM -- less than an hour of extra sleep. Oh, well...perhaps the permission was all I needed!)
