Blue Monday: Hawk

IMG_9207
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?

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

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!

No Clue


Just what can a blue lion do?
To tell you the truth, I’ve no clue.
I’ve never seen one,
Nor has my young son,
Who knows every beast in the zoo.

What If the Panda


What if the panda on Main Street
Suddenly gave up its heartbeat?
The beast would be dead,
And lay down its head,
And no longer rise to its feet.

Blue Monday: When Things Fall Apart

A blue dustpan holds the crumbled remains of a safety-glass window in Phoenix, Arizona.
 


If something appears to be broken,
No words of regret need be spoken.
When things fall apart,
It’s time to restart—
The journey goes on, I’m not jokin’!

Beautiful Place


The world is a beautiful place
For every creed, color and race;
There’s room for us all,
The great and the small—
No need to seek more room in space.

Blue Monday: No Geese in the Sky

There aren’t any geese in the sky,
There’s only a cloud flying by—
A beautiful day
To work or to play
Or maybe to get some shuteye!
