The Day Before Saturday

creativity-of-jean-francois-de-witte-11The prompt was “Friday.” No problem coming up with this one. If you have a Friday poem or thought to share, we can make a collection. Or maybe one for all the days of the week. Hmm.  



I understand why some

choose Saturday as the Sabbath;
when Friday comes, it’s all I can do to

raise my hands to the keyboard.
It’s all I can do to
not think about
sleeping late
or a glass of wine

or stretching in the darkness.

When Friday comes
my pulse slows and

my tears well and

breezes call my name.
All that’s been suppressed
emerges –  

an earthworm tunneling its way to the

warmth of the sun.
