Let It Be Saturday!

This is the day to sleep a little extra longer,
not rely on the subtle chime of the alarm.
Snuggle under the blankets,
allow the sun to rise in the sky.
Let it be Saturday!
~~~~~
This is the day to go for a run,
add a change of scenery
as my feet pound the pavement.
Get those miles in,
without worrying about rushing the run.
Let it be Saturday!
~~~~~
This is the day to make my own agenda,
sprinkle in some errands,
a quick excursion to the grocery store,
maybe cruise into T.J. Maxx.
Then grab a bite for lunch.
Let it be Saturday!
~~~~~
This is the day to bask in the sun,
with a book in my hands,
turning the pages,
getting lost someone else’s journey,
meeting people whom I’ll never meet.
Let it be Saturday!
~~~~~
This is the day to celebrate,
time with family
a special dinner on the deck
as the sun sets
or an evening outing
to a best-loved restaurant.
Let it be Saturday!
~~~~~
This is the day we all need
to unwind,
to chillax,
to just slow down.
Let it be Saturday!
~~~~~~~~~~
 Join in each Saturday for Celebrate This Week with Ruth Ayres.
It’s a time to celebrate the joy!

  1. And here I thought I was the only one who used the word ‘chillax’! 🙂 I love the line about “rushing the run.” While I am not a runner, one of my favorite parts of Saturday is not having to rush. Hope your Saturday is a good one!

  2. Ahhhhh—-great poem, Amy. I could feel myself relax into my Saturday morning reading it. Now just insert the word season for day and summer for Saturday and you have me droolin’ 🙂 4 weeks to go here!

  3. Amy, the pace is wonderful during this poem. How about taking a slice and adding a photo for the spring gallery? I know we have talked about that. You can have a picture of you and your daughter running in the big race with these words.

    This is the day to go for a run,
