Blue Monday: Hoop

IMG_8636
A basketball hoop hangs from a garage, San Diego, California.
 


The basketball hoop stays forlorn
From evening until the next morn.
No kids come to play,
So it’s safe to say
Their absence is what we should mourn.

Curse

Crow from the mountain,
have you nothing else to do
but curse at the clouds?

Where are the children?
Why does the sea seem to weep
this summer morning?

Imagine

A pathway in suburban Riverside County, California.
 


A path of mere human invention
May somehow defy all convention.
Imagine the creechas,
Mice, spydas, and leeches,
That follow the path with intention!

More Midweek Motif at Poets United: “Human”

Whose Back?

RanchoLosAlamitos036
The base of a sundial at Rancho Los Alamitos, Long Beach, California
 


Whose back does the earth ride upon?
An elephant, raven, or swan?
Perhaps it’s a gannet
That holds up the planet
That all of us humans live on!
