Slice of Life: Saturdays 6 of 31

Saturdays

What could possibly be wrong
with a day 
that allows for 
sleeping in,
endless coffee,
slow mornings?

Why wouldn't we celebrate
a day without obligation
that allows for
time spent 
as we choose,
simple moments?

What could possibly
be the problem 
with afternoon naps,
walks in the sun,
a day to catch 
our breath?

A good read,
A stroll in the sunshine,
Time standing still.
Carryout.
Movies.
Simplicity. 

Why wouldn't we count the days
until Saturday?
Why wouldn't we wish for 
endless Saturdays?

It's March and I'm diving back into the March Slice of Life Challenge!  Buckle in!  This will be my 8th year joining the community (though I must confess to a two year break).  Yep, some of the writing will be messy.  Honestly, most of it will be messy.  Thanks for stopping by.  I'm excited to dive back into the madness.  Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for hosting.

  4. No carryout and no movies (we did watch the last episode of Wanda tonight), but I did the other things - a nap, a good book, a walk. And now time to read slices.

  5. Endless Saturdays sounds brilliant! I love how this poem captures all of the joys of a Saturday.
