If I called today bliss
I’d be remiss
It’s Monday, after all
The weekend had the gall
To end far too early
Leaving me feeling surly
Yet I shan’t complain
There’s not a drop of rain
No Texas-size flood here
Praying for friends dear
It’s Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub and the word of the day from Bjorn is bliss. I started out a little funny, but it turned somber in the end. Perhaps not what Bjorn was looking for, but it’s what came out.
Ah yes….the bliss we feel on weekends — that fee time. One thing I love about rejuvenatement (never say retirement) is Sunday nights….because they are the same as any other night now. I don’t have to worry about the to-dos of Monday, getting up and rushing off to work.
Praying with you for those in Texas and now Louisiana too.
I love how you put everything in perspective as you worded your quadrille and counted your blessings xxx
So good, the twist at the end. I was just looking at some photos of Texas. It is horrible. Praying, too.
There was a twist in my attitude as I wrote this, too. I truly did start with the intent to complain.
Yes, “the weekend had the gall to end far too early” but we can still count our blessings! I enjoyed your rhyming quadrille, Linda.
“Yet I shan’t complain” The only key to true bliss.
Praying with you.
important to remember those, a draught is bliss for those who are flooded.
Words with whimsy, but also profound.
My bliss took a somber edge also. Nice poem.
I am praying for them also. I have a few relatives in the Houston and Corpus Christi area. They are fine. And any day of the week, we can find bliss in the simple things.
I’m finding bliss in meatloaf on the Traeger tonight!
You and your Traeger! I’ll be finding bliss in slow cooker meatloaf tomorrow. It’s too darn hot to be cooking out…..
🙂 The heat outside is why I like to Traeger — keeps the heat out of the kitchen.
You’re a heat girl, I’m a cold weather girl. LOLOLOL cooking over heat outside is to my mind as bad as heat in the kitchen. I can crank up the air conditioning and put the overhead fan on low and I am happy. When I get outside in the heat, I get crazy enough to chew rocks!
Isn’t it awesome how God has made us all so unique? What a boring world it would be if we were all the same.
I know. My mother always said, and that’s why there’s different flavors of ice cream! I cook out in the cool and cold weather. I have done that with snow falling around me! I just use plain old charcoal – I love the flavor.
Prayers will go a long way!
Yes they will! By the way, I had to rescue your comment from my spam filter. Not sure why, but glad I checked it for a change.
Ha. I’m with you:
“The weekend had the gall
To end far too early
Leaving me feeling surly”
But yes, all my family is in Texas, but everyone is fine. So I’m very happy.
So far my family and friends are ok, too.
If not blissful there is much to be grateful for.
We got lots of rain here in Texas, but we’re still in bliss, cause we’re in Texas, Ye haw! (We didn’t float away).
Glad to hear it!
We have a lot of things to be grateful indeed ~ Praying for all those affected ~
Nailed this one, Linda! Thank you for saying all of that.
You sure can say a lot in 44 words.
You covered it all! You can complain that it’s Monday, or be thankful that you are able to complain.
Praying with you. Wonderful expression here.
