With a crooked grin
a scarecrow honors blackbirds
and their many wiles.

Blue Monday: Windmill

DSC_0596
A windmill no longer used at Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona.


This windmill, though rusted and worn,
Deserves some attention, not scorn.
It needs a facelift—
Fresh paint is a gift—
And then it’ll shine night and morn!

Happiness

Ice cream shop sign, Historic Downtown Yuma, Arizona
 


Ice cream is happiness, everyone knows;
It makes you all shivery down to your toes.
Nothing beats ice cream to light up your face,
And make your tongue tingle, and make your heart race.

Blue Monday: Stump

IMG_8361
Sign painted on a tree stump, Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona


Whenever a stump’s painted blue,
And whether it’s old or it’s new,
It’s worth a hard look
(At least in my book)
Because of its heavenly hue!
