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!

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!

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?
