Blue Monday: Distant Mountain

DSC_0105
Colorful aspen trees brighten a hillside in California’s Inyo National Forest.
 
 

From a distant mountain, surrounded by blue sky,
I hear a raven calling, and I wonder why.
Perhaps he has a message that I need to hear,
Or maybe it’s just nonsense—who will make it clear?

Blue Monday: Blurred Image

 photo DSC_0213_zpsa2ui8qpa.jpg
Photobucket is holding all my images hostage, including this one of old fruit crates in Yuma County, Arizona.
 
 

Photobucket blurs the image,
Adds their watermark as well.
Do they think I’ll pay a ransom?
All I’m going to do is yell!

Blue Monday: Mountain View

DSC_0194 (2)
Aspen trees light up a mountainside in Inyo National Forest, California.
 
 

Beyond the mountains a patch of blue
Calls to a crow, and calls to you too.
Who’ll answer the call: you or the crow?
Only the glowing aspen trees know.

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!

Blue Monday: Northern Arizona Autumn

DSC_0160 (1)
Lockett Meadow Campground, Coconino National Forest near Flagstaff, Arizona.
 
 

Over the mountain a patch of blue sky
Catches my wandering vagabond eye.
I look past the golden, shimmering trees,
And dream of sailing on distant blue seas.

Blue Monday: Cholla

DSC_0063 (1)
A bright blue sky highlights a variety of cholla cactus, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Southern Arizona.
 
 

A cholla perks up when the sky
Turns blue as an iris—but why?
I’m not sure I know,
But surely it’s so,
And that’s good enough—it’s no lie!

Blue Monday: License Plate

DSC_0321 (1)
An old license plate at Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona still has legible numbers.
 
 

The license plate’s number are blue,
Not yellow or some other hue.
They’re bright and they’re bold,
A joy to behold,
As everything is that is blue!

Blue Monday: Standing Guard

IMG_3492
Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona
 
 

The cacti in the garden stand guard both night and day,
When skies are blue as bluebirds, and even when they’re grey.
 
I’m glad for watchful cacti, for skies of grey and blue;
For with no skies or cacti, whatever would we do?
