Blue Monday: Deserted Campground

IMG_6091 (1)
A campground with no campers in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.
 


The campground’s deserted today;
Folks found somewhere else they could stay:
A room with a bed,
Not stars overhead,
And water in which they can play.

Blue Monday: San Francisco

A view from a hotel room in San Francisco, California.
 


Over the city the sky’s a deep blue;
Listening closely I hear pigeons coo.
People sip coffee as they walk along—
The sound of their sipping makes a great song!

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.
