Blue Monday: Saguaro Blossoms

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!

Blue Monday: Saguaro Forest

Saguaros stand guard through the night,
Ensuring the desert’s all right,
So when morning comes
(Without roll of drums)
The landscape appears calm and bright.

Blue Monday: Lost Comb

Someone lost a comb in Historic Downtown Yuma, Arizona
  


If you lose your comb in the street,
Expect the coiffed people you meet
To stare at your pate
And then start to prate
About your mussed hair, not your feet!

Blue Monday: Clad in Blue

Sunday morning strollers in Historic Downtown Yuma, Arizona
  


A couple clad mostly in blue
Decided to take a walk through
The backside of town;
They looked up and down
In hopes that they’d see something new.

Blue Monday: Gecko

A decorative gecko clings to a tree.
  


The blue-footed gecko is back
To keep us all on the right track.
His tongue points the way
By night and by day—
For mapping he has quite a knack.

Shoeless

A duck lingers near the pond, Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona
 


A duck doesn’t need to wear shoes;
His webbed feet have nothing to lose
By going unshod,
But isn’t it odd
That he’d rather stroll than to snooze?

Blue Monday: Tree Hugger

A tree-hugging bird is a sight
That you can see only in light,
For like you and me
The bird in the tree
Finds comfort in sleeping at night.

Blue Monday: Eggs in Her Basket

A womanly snowman in blue
Puts eggs in her basket—not two,
But three, which is odd,
For she’s a tightwad
And rarely gives extra to you.

Blue Monday: Snowman

The snowman wears a blue hat.
He thinks it burns up his fat.
The poor guy is wrong,
But he’s so headstrong
You can’t convince him of that!

The Rose


The flower that’s known as a rose
Is beautiful, everyone knows.
Its petals are fair—
No argument there!—
That beautiful blossom, the rose.
