Free Fall Saturday or How I Would Like It To Be


Reading a book

Starts out slowly

Rising from bed

Finding no reason to hurry

Luxurious time to

Sip a coffee rather than gulp it

Read the paper rather than just glance at the headlines

Eat something that takes time to prepare

Rather than another bowl of instant oatmeal

The day to don old clothes

That are good to putter in

Maybe make a list or two

A run to the grocery store

And certainly a turn at the liquor store

For that libation of choice to end the day

Pet the dog, stroke the cat

Meet with friends or read a book

Listen to music


A day that does not demand much

A day to replenish

Replete with a night of slumber unfettered by worry~

That is the Saturday of my dreams

The Saturday of my bliss…………….

What blissful thing are you doing this Saturday?

Nights come sooner now

Days, shorter and cooler but

Sparkle ~ it is autumn


Night calms me

The day’s worries are done

Relax, reflect, read.


Night stars sprinkled above

I see no dipper or dove

Just the magic of the deep dark.
