Simple Saturday

Day 17 of Na/GloPoWriMo 2020 invites us to poetically examine the simple pleasures that make up the Saturdays of our souls.

Simple Saturday
by Michael Doyle

Simply Saturday
Could be no other way
But over coffee or tea
To share our poetry

There at the table
As best we're able
Gathered together
Whatever the weather

The words fulfill
As souls reveal
The good and the bad
Whether happy or sad

The feelings we share
Laying it all bare
Given in love and care
Just being there

Listening as we give
Reading as we live
Traces of our minds
We trail a bit behind

While giving our heart
While thoughts depart
And we simply feel
The souls that reveal

The things that moved
Hurt or somehow improved
All the words spill out
Be it a cry or a shout

I am thankful for grace
As I look into the face
Of those brave enough
To speak truth enough

Each of those who speak
Giving just a bit of peek
Into what is their best
Saturday brings its rest
