Blue Monday: Desert Sunrise

DSC_0089
Sunrise paints the sky in rainbow hues, Yuma County, Arizona.
 
 

The sun’s coming up, the hills are aglow,
Everything’s eager to get up and go;
Lizards, and rattlers, and doves in the tree
Soon will be stirring—thank goodness, not me!

Blue Monday: Graveyard Blues

DSC_0150
A decorated headstone at Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona.
 
 

A graveyard without some bright blue
Is dismal and dingy to view.
So bring on the paint,
I’m sure you won’t faint
By splashing around the bright hue!

Rattler whom I dread,
will you strike me as I walk
among the ruins?

Blue Monday: Photographer

DSC_0043 (1)
A photographer takes aim on the courthouse lawn in Prescott, Arizona.
 
 

Beyond the photographer’s head
Are traces of blue, green, and red—
A colorful sight
That’s sure to delight
The person who isn’t yet dead!
