When sunflowers bloom,
sparrows light up the garden
with fresh morning songs.

Tree Hugger

Student artwork at a Yuma County, Arizona high school.
  


A tree-hugging bird is a sight
That’s visible only in light,
For like you and me
The bird in the tree
Finds comfort in sleeping at night.

Blue Monday: Happy Kid

Version 2
Student drawing for a proposed book cover, Tucson Festival of Books, Tucson, Arizona.
 


This happy kid sings quite a lot.
However, a diva she’s not.
She bleats like a goat
That’s lost its fur coat—
She sure gives it all that she’s got!

Picnic

DSC_0266
Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona.
 


Party-crashing ants
help themselves to chips and cake
at our picnic lunch.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
We fixed ourselves a picnic, we munched among the dead,
For it was in the graveyard that our feast was spread.
The ants came uninvited and helped themselves to cake;
Now we see that picnicking was a huge mistake!

Blue Monday: Labyrinth & Prayer Flags

IMG_0236
Tibetan prayer flags flutter near a labyrinth at a church in Phoenix, Arizona.
 


A circular path is the best;
Along the whole way you can rest.
When you go around,
Not making a sound,
It’s hard to be other than blest!
