Blue Monday: Tools

Version 2
Gardening tools at Micke Grove Regional Park, Lodi, California.
 
 

The gardener lays down his tools,
‘Cause working, he thinks, is for fools.
The longer his breaks,
The less cash he makes—
He’s willing to play by those rules.

Unrelenting sun bears down on every living thing at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.
 


With no walking stick,
how distant seem the mountains
and how faint my path!

Perfect Weather

Campground in Giant Sequoia National Monument, California.
 


If you’re going camping, you’ll need a new tent;
A blue one is worth every dollar and cent
You spend for its color and beauty and style—
The weather is perfect, let’s camp for a while!
