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!

Little cactus wren,
the ocotillo blossoms
blush to hear you sing.

Noisy cactus wren,
won’t you hush up long enough
to see the blossoms?

a cactus flaunts its blossoms
for a day or two.

Some of the first blossoms of 2017: sand verbena in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California
  


No one’s looking back with longing
For the chilly winter day,
When no flowers graced the hillsides,
And the sky was only grey.
  
No one thinks with fond remembrance
Of the barren hills and slopes
Now that spring has come with blossoms
To renew our dreams and hopes.

In the year ahead,
as long as there are blossoms,
we shall be all right.
