The Weekend (Timzauto’s 20 Lines Weekend Challenge)

The weekend now is lurking, just beyond this one last day

The week that’s just now ending, it has flown

Saturday and Sunday, they will come and go away

Whatever we bring to them, etched in stone.


As children I remember that the weekends were such fun

For grownups that is often still the case

Family time and shopping, or a movie or the beach

Frowns disappear, for smiles to replace


I’m thankful for my granddaughter to spend the weekends with

She makes the smiles more numerous, you know.

We both love church on Sunday, it’s the highlight of our week

To fellowship, and in the Lord to grow


And when it all is over and on Monday we wake up

It’s off to school, the first day of the year

Grace is now a fifth grader, it’s so hard to believe

Her eleventh birthday’s drawing near.


And once again the cycle of a new week will begin

We go to work and school and muddle through

Thankful, cause we know another weekend’s on its way

And life is what we make it…me and you.


Saturday thoughts

Rough night

Little sleep

Coughing jags


Worn out

Tried to lie back down

No rest for the weary.

So much to do

So many reasons to feel discouraged.

Too many reasons to be thankful

To waste the time being discouraged.

So, I simply rest my arms on the desk

And move my fingers over the keys

Thankful for a little poetry

On this beautiful day

Though I’d rather be outside enjoying it.

Thankful for the good day I had yesterday

And that this too will pass.

Thankful for family and friends who love me

And for a heart that may act tough…

But still has some soft spots where love always remains.

Still…a little sadness resides within this heart of mine.

Overruled by the faith that never leaves me.


Rainy Weekend

heavy clouds..unrelenting rain…
bed weather and cold winds
stifle my plans for Saturday…
crossed out picnic and lunch,
shredded the thought of taking
a stroll in the nearby park…

maybe i’ll put on my rain boots
and my raincoat..or run free and
go dance silly under the rain
like my 8-year old self
some 20 years ago…


Tuesday for me

Monday, Tuesday... Laissez-moi danser

Tuesday a day like it’s own

it feels kinda like Monday

just a bit  better by midday

always a strong workday

still a long wait til payday.

never a worry of Friday

for Wednesday is hump day

very similar to Thursday

just further away from Sunday

all weeks are filled with great days

but my favorite I think is tuesday

This week our subject is

A time you felt homesick



It’s time to do my writing, for 20 lines a day

The day is just beginning, don’t know quite what to say

The sun outside is shining, through clouds a-passing o’er

Will the sun be winning, or will it rain some more?


I’ve made a pot of coffee, and fed the furry cat

He ate too fast, I cleaned the mess, I really hated that.

I said goodbye to Jenny, or Jen she does prefer

Or Jennifer, she lets it slide that Jenny I call her.


So what will I do with today as it does roll along?

Clean and cook, take out the trash, and maybe sing a song

Traci has the day off, will spend some time with her

Don’t want to waste a moment we’ve been offered, to be sure.


Can’t wait to see the miracles this day will have ahead

Or maybe there’ll be stumbling blocks, but long as I’m not dead

This life I will be living with a smile upon my face

At least as much as possible, and loved ones I’ll embrace


I hope you’ll find the miracles in your day too, my friend

I hope that you’ll be smiling when the day comes to an end.

I hope that you’ll look back and say you’re happy you’re alive

Looking forward to tomorrow, though fifteen or eighty-five.


Tim’s Saturday Challenge

My poem on Saturday->

Saturday- a day like any other,

But still coming with a thrill,

For the holiday the next day,

For all those starving for one like me,

Dealing with a six-day week,

With the hope of Saturday to come,

Getting dealt with the wait for Sunday.

My Useless Saturday Poem     

Please everyone join in … post your day !!!!


Soothing quiet in the house alone

A bird in the window, sounds of atone

Television on not much to see

Up and about I sit under a tree

Reading Birds post of birthday present

Dandelions matured without any scent

Another day going exciting or bored

Yes we’re alive , thanks to the lord
