JWG's Grand Hodgepodge — Weekend Days & Entrances (2 poems)

Wherein JWG enters Hope's door.

14. Weekend Days

Weekend days
Are looked forward to by many people
Who need a reward.

Saturday mornings
Were made for shopping, household chores, and rest.
Afternoons repeat mornings.

After this bustling about,
Comes getting ready for the next event
Of, perhaps, a fun night on the town.

One has the chance to be lethargic
And forget the worries of business.
That is what is intended that we believe.

Waking up Sunday morning
To the relaxing aroma of food
Heralds a day of relaxing mirth.

A sleepy mid-day
Has the advantage of being endless
As if the Sun will not set.

Sunday nights
Are the best for each one is full of dreams
For the next weekend.

 

15. Entrances

Entrances
Into another realm are exciting.
I am never scared.

I’m an explorer
Who has left my boyhood home with relish
Because I was encouraged.

Having a dream to follow,
It was easy to scope out the right path
Which I had read about in a book.

Finding the correct route in a maze,
I refused to be hindered by dead ends.
I remembered the stories of Hercules.

I have tales of survival.
I have what some would say are enemies.
I have conquered my personal strife.

I have a partner
Who happily shares adventure with me.
We discover new places.

We have fun
Exploring gardens of dreamy delights.
We enter Hope’s door.
