Saturday…

Is this our favorite day of the week?

As we seek reprieve and rest or for some

Is it lonely, deserted, unfriendly, bleak?

The day of parties, get-togethers can become

A day of emptiness, searching, hiding, no fun.

Opposites, depending on the circumstances

That life has served up this day.

Reach out in some small way

To brighten this day for someone ill or alone.

Happiness dwells in acts of kindness

As much as in the respite from toil.

Saturday can be a time of refinement

As well as a personal day of joy!
