Blue Monday: Rainbow

FullSizeRender (1)
A rainbow brightens part of the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.
 
 

Even a rainbow brighter than bright
Can never begin to outshine the night;
But hang it high in a desert place
And watch the barrenness glow with grace!

Haiku My Heart: Faint Is My Path

Unrelenting sun bears down on every living thing at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.
 


With no walking stick,
how distant seem the mountains
and how faint my path!

Blue Monday: Barrel Cactus

Photobucket
Barrel cactus, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.
 


High above the cactuses in the clear blue sky
Winter rainclouds sometimes come, sometimes multiply.
Not today, however, there’s not a cloud in sight;
Perfect for the cactuses: hot and dry and bright!

Will you find nectar
beyond the mountain’s shadow,
desert butterfly?

Blue Monday: Deserted Campground

IMG_6091 (1)
A campground with no campers in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.
 


The campground’s deserted today;
Folks found somewhere else they could stay:
A room with a bed,
Not stars overhead,
And water in which they can play.
