No Complaints

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.

  3. So good, the twist at the end. I was just looking at some photos of Texas. It is horrible. Praying, too.

    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.

    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.

    If not blissful there is much to be grateful for.

    You covered it all! You can complain that it’s Monday, or be thankful that you are able to complain.
