The first Tuesday in August (since the last one)

It’s an auspicious day;

however, I’m suspicious about the fact

that it’s raining again –

like it did in May;

and nothing really changes,

it just comes back time

and time again

in a slightly different order

(exactly like my poems)

weather you like it

or them

or not.

What day is it?

Days are a construct.

We have a sequence

of nights and days,

that have been sorted

into groups of seven.

These were given names,

around the world,

that individualise them within a week,

but they are not unique.

A Wednesday rocks up,

then, seven days later,

it rocks up again –

as do the other days.

They give storms and hurricanes

individual names –

perhaps restricting ‘them’ to seven

would be possible?

At least they would be further apart

than every seventh day.

Six days a week

Six days a week;

sixty weeks,

and a bit,

a year

(except in leap years

when sixty one exact

would be the number)

and all we have to do

I’d decide which day of the week

we should remove.

Easy, isn’t it?

Until we look at removing a month.

Be that as it may…

Be that as it may…

there are thirty days in April,

the same in June,

neither has a middle day.

But, May, having thirty-one,

does.

What does all the above

have

to do with the price of bananas?

Not a lot really;

but, as I often say,

If I stop talking,

I start thinking…

and then where would I be?

Monday Unkown Format – Acrostic

Monday starts the week,

Other days follow Monday,

Nine days in total—

Definitely ‘nine’ I say,

And you only have to count—

Yesterday, and then Today.

Monday Tanka – Acrostic

Monday starts the week,

Other days follow Monday,

Nine days in total—

Definitely ‘nine’ I say,

And you only have to count—

Tuesday is just one of seven

Tuesday is just one of seven

One of seven what, I do not

know;

but, think that in the order

of the days of the week –

of which there ‘are’ seven –

Tuesday should at the front go.

And we should make Monday

the third day of the weekend;

what do you think of that,

my little friend?

Why isn’t it Thursday today? – Thursday Version

Why isn’t it Thursday, today?

I thought it was Thursday,

and.. it is.

It’s Thursday!

What is that all about?

Thursday!

.

I thought it was Thursday, today;

turns out it is.

If only it was Friday!.

Did I mention

that it’s ‘only’ Thursday?

Why isn’t it Thursday today? – Revisited.

Why isn’t it Thursday, today?

I thought it was Thursday,

and it’s not!

It’s Wednesday!

What is that all about?

Why isn’t it Thursday?

.

I thought it was Thursday, today;

turns out it’s not, it’s Wednesday, again.

It keeps on being Wednesday;

doesn’t keep on being Thursday, does it?

Every time I turn around, it’s Wednesday,

not Thursday:

I’m never going to get the hang of this calendar thing –

days of the week? W.E.A.K. Weak!

.

Did I mention

that it’s ‘only’ Wednesday –

and I thought it was Thursday?

When Wednesday Comes

When Wednesday creeps up on you

and takes you unawares,

you suddenly realise that

you are half way through the ‘weak’ days,

and heading towards the ‘strong’ ones.

“Wow!

“How did that happen?”

you might ask.

Well, perhaps you should have been paying

more attention.
