Palo verde tree in bloom at Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona.
 


among the blossoms
a hidden dove starts cooing—
distant mountains quake

Blue Monday: Windmill

DSC_0596
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!
