Blue Monday: Clad in Blue

Sunday morning strollers in Historic Downtown Yuma, Arizona
  


A couple clad mostly in blue
Decided to take a walk through
The backside of town;
They looked up and down
In hopes that they’d see something new.

Blue Monday: Gecko

A decorative gecko clings to a tree.
  


The blue-footed gecko is back
To keep us all on the right track.
His tongue points the way
By night and by day—
For mapping he has quite a knack.

Blue Monday: Tangles

Tangled branches of a fallen palo verde tree, Yuma County, Arizona
  


Beyond the tangles, a patch of blue
Catches my eye and gives me a clue
About life’s tangles and how long they’ll last:
In the blink of an eye, they will be past.

Blue Monday: Cactus Woman

Detail from a wall of mosaics, Ajo, Arizona
  


Cactus Woman has nothing to lose
By walking for weeks without wearing shoes.
 
She’s toughened her feet on thorns and stones,
And carries the wilderness in her bones.
 
Her eyes are afire, her heart’s ablaze;
She loves the desert’s unsociable ways.
 
Cactus Woman is someone, they say,
Who’ll live in the wilderness, come what may.

Blue Monday: Tree Hugger

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

Blue Monday: Cacophony

Weathered letters on a truck in Arizona
  


Six dozen cattle are lowing,
The hives are buzzing with bees,
The neighbor’s rooster is crowing—
I need some quietness, please!

Blue Monday: View

Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
  


Today not a cloud is marring the sky,
Today only blue upon blue
Spreads from the east all the way to the west—
What an incredible view!

Blue Monday: Love Stone

IMG_7570
Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma County, Arizona
  


A stone to remember a dear one who’s gone,
A stone that reminds me from dusk until dawn
That someone is guarding my steps from above—
The name of that someone is, quite simply, Love.

Blue Monday: Eggs in Her Basket

A holiday decoration in a Yuma County, Arizona church
  


A womanly snowman in blue
Puts eggs in her basket—not two,
But three, which is odd,
For she’s a tightwad
And rarely gives extra to you.
