Saturday’s Bliss

Alarm clock sleeping in

Saturday morning waits

Lazy minutes calling

Extra coffee’s first mate


Day’s blessed, empty page

Life’s agenda on pause

Batteries recharging

Kicking back, just because


Quiet morning moments

Coffee’s second cup smiles

Never stuck in traffic

Saturday’s endless miles


This truly special day

Sharing its own sunshine

Life’s gray clouds chased away

Loving each hour, so fine


Each week’s favorite time

Carefree pace never shifts

Energized spirit sings

Saturday shares its gifts

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.

Saturday’s Sweetness

Free and quiet morning

Saturday adorning


Reading God’s Holy Word

Clear thoughts, no longer blurred


Sun rises and brightens

Calmness breathes, enlightens


Workweek taking its break

Making buckwheat pancakes


Listening to new song

Beat of life moves along


One more coffee cup sings

Caffeine never hamstrings


Good vibes fueling this life

Waiting for lovely wife


Looking forward as one

Day brings plenty of fun


Watching Buckeyes’ football

Scarlet and Gray now call


Excuse our loud cheering

Assisting team’s steering


Night closing and ending

Sleep soon, not pretending


Each week’s sweetest, fun day

Always, be Saturday


This photo was taken at the annual Scarlet and Gray Spring Game at Ohio State’s renowned Horseshoe back in 2015. Nearly every seat was filled for what was basically a scrimmage and practice. Go Bucks!
