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!

The gardener’s tools
wait without knowing they wait
to be used again.

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.

Urban wilderness—
high above the teeming streets
sparrows build snug nests.

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.

Curse

Crow from the mountain,
have you nothing else to do
but curse at the clouds?
