Saturday’s Respite

Photo by Ivan Samkov on

Weekend sails at dawn

Taking pause from work

Leisure setting sail

Life catches its perks


Respite time knocking

Relief from week’s stress

No agenda waits

Saturday brings less


Lazy day ahead

Nothing on day’s scope

Extra morning time

Coffee’s horoscope


Sadie holding leash

Ready for her walk

Sun’s delights greet us

Sharing, we both talk


Taste mid-morning brunch

Sweet morsels waiting

Fruit-filled muffins baked

Hunger abating


Afternoon nap calls

Cozy spot surveyed

Blessed Saturday dreams

Respite’s lasting crusade



The inspiration for this poem comes from spending an overnight stay with Sadie, an English Lab.  She served as the perfect hostess while her family was away.
