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

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: Musicians

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

An abandoned shopping cart near Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona
 


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.

Blue Monday: Padlock

Padlock on a storage shed at Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona
 


A padlock’s a marvelous thing
For keeping my treasure and bling
Away from a thief—
It’s such a relief
That I can do nothing but sing!

Blue Monday: Bag

IMG_5578
Discarded plastic bag, Yuma County, Arizona
 


A bag that was snagged in the sand
Polluted this beautiful land.
’Twas not the bag’s fault,
But that of the dolt
Who tossed it aside with his hand.

Blue Monday: Shoe

Lost shoe, somewhere in California
 


A runner slipped out of her shoe—
A pity, because it is blue.
Her foot is now bare,
She’s nothing to wear
Until she buys footwear anew.

Blue Monday: Woman

Detail from a mural in Artists Alley, Ajo, Arizona
 


A woman with eyes big and brown
Decided she’d go into town.
She bought a new hat,
And milk for her cat,
And, at the last minute, a gown.
