Shoeless

DSC_0360
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

Student artwork at a Yuma County, Arizona high school
  


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 holiday decoration in a Yuma County, Arizona church
  


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.

Awesome


The rose’s beautiful blossom
Is never known to play possum;
It’s bright and it’s bold,
A sight to behold—
Some even say that it’s awesome!

Blue Monday: Elephant

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: Musicians

Mural in Artists Alley, Ajo, Arizona
 


Musicians who play in the street?
Their music just cannot be beat!
Though joyful and glad
Or soulful and sad,
It’s better than any sheep’s bleat!

Blue Monday: Wise Woman

Mural in Artists Alley, Ajo, Arizona
 


A wise woman watched from the wall
To see who would stumble and fall.
She offered them truth,
But no one, forsooth,
Accepted her offer at all.

Blue Monday: Shopping Cart

Food City has lost a blue cart,
Though no one has torn it apart.
It’s under a tree
In shadows, you see,
And not at the local food mart.
