Tri-haiku XXXV (the sun, hooray)

And here for Sunday
the sun still has its hat on
Hip, hip, hip hooray

Golden for autumn
it still shines yellow and warm
Hip, hip, hip hooray

Shining still brightly
it stays and it continues
Hip, hip, hip hooray

Sunday Haiku

A Sunday Haiku
in seventeen syllables
The right thing to do

A haiku for Sunday

Quality of life
seized in every moment of
this Sunday of rest

Rest Days

Sometimes days just don’t quite begin
and befuddled it’s usually best
to hand in the towel and lay down the pen
put one’s feet up and have a good rest

Sunday Mornings II

And for a Sunday morning
as the day it gathers pace
here’s to lazy lie-ins and
just lounging round the place

Maybe a leisured breakfast
with some music by and by
or just a little wander
when the sun is nice and high

Then curled up on the sofa
Neath warm blankets snuggled we
will while away remaining hours
with something on TV

Seven days revisited #7 (Sunday)

Underneath a
Awaken early?
You wouldn’t, would you?


This is 7 of 7 in a series from Jemverse originally published in July 2014

The passing of days

To the week that was
That has now passed
It’s had its ups and downs
Some high times
And some lower ones
Some smiles and yes, some frowns

I’ve worked it well
I’ve worked it hard
I’ve taken every hour
And used it wisely
Making most
Of honesty and power

But now it’s Sunday
Yet again
And rest comes to this frame
Before the morrow
Brings with it
Another week again

To the resting day

To the resting day
I relinquish everything
My soul is refreshed

The dichotomy of slow Sundays

Something about slow Sundays
as I’m awakened by the sun
Streaming through the curtains
when my slumber time is done
A dichotomy of purpose
first choice I need to make
To embrace the day with open arms
or another couch day take

But most days it’s the sunshine
which wins that war of will
An easy choice if truth be told
as with some hours to kill
I can get out there, enjoy the sun
run around and play
Then veg out on the sofa
for the rest of my Sunday


For Sunday…


Underneath a




Y should I?
