Blue Monday: Lemons

DSC_0239 (2)
A mural honoring lemon growers, Exeter, California.
 


The lemons in my basket
Are plump and ripe—not sweet!
But still my lovely lemons
Are good enough to eat!
 
If you’d prefer a mango,
There’s not much I can do,
For all these lovely lemons
Were gathered just for you!

Blue Monday: Pigeon Whisperer

A young visitor seems to be talking to pigeons near the koi pond at Japanese Friendship Garden, Phoenix, Arizona.
 


What should people whisper to pigeons at the pond?
Any whispered word will do, as long as it is fond.

Blue Monday: Artisan

Artisan at work, Galería Bernabe, Tonalá, Jalisco, México.
 


Carefully the artisan decorates the cup.
The lucky one who buys it will have a regal sup.

Blue Monday: When Things Fall Apart

A blue dustpan holds the crumbled remains of a safety-glass window in Phoenix, Arizona.
 


If something appears to be broken,
No words of regret need be spoken.
When things fall apart,
It’s time to restart—
The journey goes on, I’m not jokin’!

Blue Monday: No Geese in the Sky

There aren’t any geese in the sky,
There’s only a cloud flying by—
A beautiful day
To work or to play
Or maybe to get some shuteye!

Blue Monday: Meeting Place

Mission San Xavier del Bac 202
Mission San Xavier del Bac, Tucson, Arizona.
 


Here heaven and earth seem to meet,
Although it’s not near any street,
But out in the wild
Where even a child
Can sniff at the air and say, “Sweet!”

Blue Monday: Wild and Lonely Place

In a wild and lonely place
Hikers may come face to face
With beasts hungry, gaunt, and weak—
At that point it’s best to shriek!

Blue Monday: Wind Turbines

Version 2
Wind turbines generate electricity on the outskirts of Ocotillo, California.
 


The turbines go round and around,
And yet they make scarcely a sound.
The power that’s made
Comes from a long blade,
Propelled by the wind that’s westbound.

Blue Monday: Shabby Sign

A shabby but still legible sign in Historic Downtown Yuma, Arizona
 


The sign may be shabby and battered,
It’s edges may even be tattered.
Yet one thing is clear:
Old Yuma’s still here—
A message that always has mattered.

Blue Monday: Hoop

A basketball hoop hangs from a garage, San Diego, California.
 


The basketball hoop stays forlorn
From evening until the next morn.
No kids come to play,
So it’s safe to say
Their absence is what we should mourn.
