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!

Honey


The honey I gather at noon,
I spread on my bread with a spoon.
I haven’t a knife.
Besides, it’s my life,
Not yours, so don’t judge me, you loon!

On Guard


A person who’s never on guard
Will never become a good bard,
For poets have eyes
That see beyond lies;
They stick to the truth—and that’s hard!

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!

Books


Illiterate though he may be,
Books litter his bedroom, you see.
That book on the chair
He handles with care,
And looks at the pictures with glee!

Blue Monday: Beyond the Shadows

Apache County, Arizona
A clear blue sky lies just beyond shadows cast by piñons and cedars in Apache County, Arizona.
 
 

Beyond the shadows, there’s blue.
I want to go there, don’t you?
A place of delight,
Where everything’s bright—
I think it’s a dream come true.

Blue Monday: Grit

The gritty backside of Historic Downtown Yuma, Arizona.
 
 

The sky, not the wall, is clear blue.
The wall is redbrick (as you knew);
No window in sight
To let in the light—
Forget about rooms with a view!

The Collector


A man who collected rare stamps
Abjured them in favor of lamps.
Along with bent spoons
And old Celtic runes,
He also collected C-clamps!

Blue Monday: Mottled Sky

DSC_0030 (1)
Clouds mottle a blue sky in Yuma County, Arizona.
 
 

Whenever I see a blue sky,
I let out a lengthy, loud sigh.
My friend, the old crow,
Likes blue skies also—
We’re birds of a feather, that’s why!

Blue Monday: Graveyard Blues

DSC_0150
A decorated headstone at Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona.
 
 

A graveyard without some bright blue
Is dismal and dingy to view.
So bring on the paint,
I’m sure you won’t faint
By splashing around the bright hue!
