The last straw – #haiku + comment for #meditation & reflection

There was the last straw,

result of words and actions –

who knows when it comes.

For meditation and reflection

When you think about it,
nobody ever knows when any one thing they do or say
to somebody else is “the last straw” for that other person.

In light of this, what does that mean for how you
speak and act in any interaction with those you love and care about….
and with anybody else you interact with?

Watch arising thoughts,

free only kind speech and acts –

last straw safely stowed.
