Blue Monday: Snowman

IMG_9636
A snowman ornament hangs on a church’s Christmas tree in Yuma County, Arizona.
 


The snowman with his trusty broom
Is able to clean any room.
He needs nothing more
To spiff up the floor—
There’s magic in his battered broom!

Blue Monday: Archway

An archway frames the sky at Mission San Xavier del Bac, Tucson, Arizona.
 


An archway that frames the blue sky
Is worth looking for, and here’s why:
It makes the sky seem
To be Van Gogh’s dream,
Enchanting your mind and your eye.

Blue Monday: Stained Glass

A stained glass window at Sacred Heart Church, Farmington, New Mexico.
 


A window stained mostly in blue
Can be quite relaxing, it’s true.
It soothes and it calms
All fears and all qualms.
There’s nothing quite like it for you!

Blue Monday: Stairway

 photo Sedonastairway_zpsa9bb0ddc.jpg
A locked gate at the top of a stairway in Sedona, Arizona stops pedestrians.
 


If upstairs was where you would go,
There’s something I think you should know:
You cannot go past
The gate that’s shut fast—
You’ll have to stay down here below.

Old Age


Old age is a neat little trick
For people who never get sick.
But if you’re not well,
Old age can be hell—
As if you were hit by a brick.

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.

Addiction or Fiction?


The gal in the 10-gallon hat
Has gotten exceedingly fat.
Is her addiction
Only a fiction,
Or is it more serious than that?

Reading Fiction


The fiction you read every day
Can mess up your mind, so they say.
But can it be worse
Than ludicrous verse
That no one will read anyway?

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.

Owl

Version 2
A great horned owl perches in a palo verde tree in the Sonoran Desert, Yuma County, Arizona.
 


One morning an owl in a tree
Appeared to be staring at me,
Or maybe he glared;
It’s not that I cared,
It’s just what owls do, don’t you see?
