Seven Days + One


"Fridays are for dancing..."
she smiled and took my hand.

Saturdays are for soul,
the circle growing ever wide.

All the blessed Sundays...
Sundays are just for rest.

Mondays are for mornings,
snoozebars and not-agains.

Tuesdays are made for two;
happy hours, seconds slipping,

Away

Away

Wednesdays are for the grind--
call it hump day for a reason.

Thursdays are for thunder
that echoes before the end.

"And Fridays are for dancing",
I can't wait to hear you say it...

Again--

And again.

And again.

Reminded me of one of my (secret) favourite songs... Friday I'm in Love by the Cure.
It's a compliment, I promise.

This poem is so simple, yet says a lot and rings very true.

I love the Cure, so it is a fine compliment, indeed.

Yeah, nothing profound, but it was a good post for today.

Just saw your new post. Be by in a sec!

Peace out.

As always, glad to have you here with us.

Every day is a celebration. Let's live it just like that--when we can!

Peace and love.

Fridays are most definately, made for dancing. The Cure, was one of my faves in the 80's. But also Kiss, and Metallica. I don't discriminate.
Now it's everything. Whatever is danceable.
Your poem is a celebration of everyday, I like that. Wednesday's even take on new meaning here, nice spin.

Even if a day is not special, we should invent a sweet meaning for it. I think I accomplished that.

And I love all the eighties, really. It was my adolesence, my time to dream and not worry too much.

Thanks for the visit.

Peace and love every day of the week!

Fridays are for dancing and clinking and loving and magic. This one reminds me of Singleton. :) And if you need a break, take one. Everybody'll still be here. Hugs!

Last night, I felt exhausted.

Tonight, the world is my plaything. Who knows what tomorrow may bring.

But I'm glad to know that you will al be here. Thanks for the late night rounds. *Hugs in return*

Peace and love, friend.

The thunder makes an excellent song to usher in the weekend.


Chicky Babe

Happy hour is always a good thing.


Peace out, all.

eric1313 said...

JR

At least the eagle does shit for you. The eagle only eyes me like a snack.

And even it rejects me!


Cazzie!!!

I suppose Saturdays are good for dancing, too. Hope you get everything done so you can think of old number one.

But a mom's work is never done.

Peace out.

eric1313 said...

Etain

Thank you for the lovely compliment!


Oceans

And it slides so easily off the tongue, too.

eric1313 said...

Ivan

Will do, sir, will do.

And you keep rolling!


Josie

Anything good for the soul is good on that day.

Whatever a heart desires.

eric1313 said...

Karoline

I'm singing and dancing on this page, non-stop. This soul-train keeps rolling, even if the tracks are unclear.

And thank you for the shout

See you all again soon.

Peace and love.

We think a lot alike!

_Soulless_ said...

Reading this made me feel so alive (considering it's now 5AM on a Monday here). Thanks for the energy (and spirit) boost!

Cheers!

eric1313 said...

Souless

Thank you for dropping by.

Glad to give you a boost on your monday morning.

Peace out and come back by any time.

skinnylittleblonde said...

Beautiful... I wish I could dance in realtime with you and with Sing & Sister Kimbies! one day...

eric1313 said...

SLB

LOL! You-know-who inspired it, I knew you'd like it, too. And I'm so glad to see you here.

A huge hug to you, babe.

Take care and peace out.

Crashdummie said...

Hahah I loved it, so cheerful and bubbly! I'll just print it out and give it to my manager, so he'll understand why I'll be swaying around on fridays ;)

eric1313 said...

Crashy

Found you! Glad to see you here! I figured i'd look around and see if there were changes. I knew you'd like this one, and I was sad when you missed it. But I see that there was no need to be sad. You're a great fan to have. Thanks for the visits, as always. Your little southpark girl is so damn cute! I love seeing her around here.

Peace and cheers to you, mate!

You're the bomb.
