{September 30, 2015}   A Wednesday Poem

shadows on windows

On and On

Life has been insistently busy the last few months and I all but abandoned my writing. This morning I pulled out my poetry notebook to jot down a couple of lines that came to me as I drove to the laundrymat, and I found this poem. Appropriately it’s Wednesday. So I thought I would share it. Never mind Mondays, can you tell I don’t like Wednesdays??


It’s Wednesday,

my week’s nemesis,

work’s dullest day.

It stretches like a desert

of time, the afternoon

especially dry and arid.

How to prepare for the journey?

What to bring,

not too heavy that

drags me to the ground

in the moisture-sucking air,

but keeps my parched brain

from cracking and splitting,

and able to savor

the respite when it is over?

Think of Wednesdays as the start of the transformation towards the weekend maybe that will help! I have nominated you for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award, if you choose to accept it here’s the link

Hah – never minded Wednesday. we call it “hump day” – because once you’ve finished it you’re over the hump on your way to the weekend. have you heard of that?
