Blue Monday: Blue Pants

IMG_8451
Detail from a mural, Dayton, Washington.
 


The man in blue pants bends his knees,
But knows that he doesn’t dare sneeze;
A mighty achoo
Would surely not do—
He’d probably lose all his keys!

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!

Whose Back?

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!

Blue Monday: Windmill

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!

Blue Monday: Stump

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!

Blue Monday: Doors

Handsome blue doors on a business establishment in Historic Downtown Yuma, Arizona


Whenever a door’s painted blue
It’s hard to resist going through;
So open the door
And see what’s in store
For those who love wonders—like you!

Barter


Purveyors of pink lemonade
Will barter for anything made:
A tchotchke is great,
And so is a plate
Bedizened with bits of blue jade.

Deal


A baker decided to trade
Some muffins that he had just made.
He plotted to seal
A Trumpian deal—
And left his apprentice unpaid.

Blue Monday: Garden Path

A bright spring morning at Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona


A bright blue day is the best;
It far outshines all the rest.
There’s really an art
To cheering the heart,
Something that bright days do best.

Blue Monday: Saguaro Blossoms

Saguaro cactus blossoms, Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona
  


Saguaros do not bloom at night;
In daytime they’re ever so bright.
Against a blue sky
They dazzle the eye—
O what a magnificent sight!
