Two Dodoitsus (I – Saturday)

Weekend and Saturday comes
and the mercury still climbs
Summer well and truly here
Felt within this heat


[A dodoitsu is a four-line Japanese non-rhyming poetic form with a syllabic sequencing of 7-7-7-5] 

Two Tanagas (I – Saturday)

Saturday and sunshine here
Typical for time of year
This summer's child so full of cheer
in these four lines, made quite clear


Tanaga is a Tahitian poetic 4-line rhyming stanza each with 7 syllables

Tri-tanka XIII – Saturday

6 of 7 for Tri-tanka week

Following coffee
my Saturday slow starting
pauses yet again
Cathartic indecision
rules and I’m happy with that

For this is my rest
Snoozing may well play a part
staring into space
and doing little except
drinking coffee and resting

Music plays a part
as will reading and a game
or another snooze
For this is my Saturday
mine to do with as I choose

Arrives and

Tiredness fades
