Sunday Sonnet [Rhyme-Free], #4, 2016

Percolator steaming, perfuming the

kitchen air, mingling with scent of pancakes

cooking on the stove: breakfast rhythm to

start the weekend with, dance to bring in the

freedom of no cares but the laissez-faire

attitude to be expected of these

two little days, unshackled from desks, let

out from the office to pursue with a

background soundtrack of easy listening that

which makes us tick.  (She smiles at the morning thought

of her child’s joy: a whole day before them…

Imagine what they could do!).  Best seize the

chance now before Monday’s humdrum return.
