Blue Monday: Global Friendship

IMG_9071
A mural in Stockton, California celebrates friendships around the world.
 


The hand of a friend may be brown,
Or maybe it’s white in this town.
Whatever the hue,
I know this is true:
A friend lifts you up when you’re down.

Blue Monday: Cross

Glendale Mem.Park.16 Jan.11 061 copy
An “old rugged cross,” Glendale Memorial Park, Glendale, Arizona.
 


Although the cross is rugged
And the grave is sere,
I come to visit often,
For my beloved’s here.
 
It’s not a chore to visit
Even when it’s hot,
For my beloved greets me
From his little plot.

Blue Monday: Vase

Detail from a painting in an art store, Angels Camp, California.
 


Vase with just a touch of blue,
I sought long and hard for you.
Now you’re mine to beautify
Every flower that I buy,
Cut, and place within your space—
Keep them bright and cheerful, vase!

Blue Monday: Tent

Campground in Giant Sequoia National Monument, California.
 


If you’re going camping, you’ll need a new tent;
A blue one is worth every dollar and cent
You spend for its color and beauty and style—
The weather is perfect, let’s camp for a while!

Blue Monday: Hawk

Detail from a mosaic, Springville, California.
 


This hungry hawk’s looking for prey.
He’ll keep looking throughout the day.
When day turns to night,
He’ll give up his flight,
Along with his wildlife buffet.

Blue Monday: Blue Blossoms

Detail from a painting in an art store, Angels Camp, California.
 


Blue blossoms ablaze in a pot
Can cheer both the German and Scot.
How clear and how bright
They glow day and night—
They’ll dazzle you, I kid you not!

Blue Monday: High School

A sign on a high school campus in Stockton, California.
 


If you are not learning in school,
Does that mean you’re simply a fool?
It might or might not,
Despite what you thought.
The truth is: There’s no steadfast rule.

Blue Monday: Dragonfly

A dragonfly zeroes in on its prey in this detail from a mosaic in Springville, California.
 


A dragonfly dressed all in blue
May not look alarming to you,
But bees and gnats flee
Whenever they see
A dragonfly zooming—it’s true!

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

 photo DSC_0183_zpsadd9trgt.jpg
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.
