Sunday Rejuvenation

Sunday is as Sunday does

A beautiful gift from God above

Placid waters and winter’s wheaty grass

Wondering if the attempt of warmth will last

Sunday is at it rests upon wooden bench

While rejuvenation seeks to be quenched

Take in the view, smell coming of spring

Listen to geese upon their honking wing

Sunday is as one day in time

It’s cool, calm energy feels sublime

A walk along it’s graceful edge

Removes the cobwebs from life’s head

Sunday is as the beginning of a week

Created for all whether courageous or meek

It ingests all that history has been

Before manic Monday begins again

Sunday is as long as it’s here

The solemn end of it rightly near

Praise Him for creation’s needed rest

With promise that this week shall be its best

      Same to you, Cheryl. We’re expecting snow tomorrow and Tuesday, so today has been a good day for sun and rejuvenation. πŸ™‚

    Nice post. I want to be on that bench, watching the water, and listening to geese passing by.

    Your snow tomorrow and Tuesday translates into snow for us on Wednesday and Thursday.
    In the meantime, this beautiful sunny weather has been a promise of spring ahead πŸ™‚
    Did you take your bike out?

    • bikerchick57 says:

      No bike yet. I’ve been taking walks, trying to test out my foot (it’s getting better) because I want to be able to go for my lunchtime walks. I’m hoping to be on the bike trail later this month or early April, if we get some nice weather.

      • Joanne Sisco says:

        Me too. I’ve been tempted a few times, but decided the bike cleaning I would have to do afterwards would not be worth the effort πŸ™‚

    What a nice tribute to this initial day. I would love to be sitting on a bench near a river on a sunny day.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      There will be more days like this, Dan. Probably better ones for sitting on that bench. You can’t tell by the photos, but the “river” empties out into Lake Winnebago. I used to live across from this park when I was married, but appreciate it more now that I don’t drive by it every day.

    That was LOVELY! Your gratitude shines like the sun!
    It won’t last here, so I can’t see it’ll last there — but a reprieve is always welcome. I am extremely grateful for the sun lately. How much more energy I have when the sun is up longer and longer! It was in the high 40s today, and sunny as can be, so I took some kids to the zoo. It was wonderful. Just wonderful. And home to grill out and chill out. What a great day.
    You’re right about manic Monday, of course. A long week looms. They say all weeks are the same length, but after weekends like this, well…
    I wish you a good one — speedy and productive with no kinks πŸ™‚

      Thanks Joey! You are right…the sun and warmth and longer days revives my spirit and makes me feel like I can stay up past 9:00 pm (gramma bunny here). It’s time to get out of hibernation!
      Have a great week!

  5. Beautiful. Simply beautiful … both the poem and the photographs.
    I could happily lay down and listen to the water, chattering away to itself. Blisssssss.
    Sending love, Mary ~ Cobs. xxx
