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!

Winter Is Coming

Mullein poking out from snow photo NMmullein_zps0eb40104.jpg
Dead mullein stalks poke out of the snow in northern New Mexico.
 


Winter is coming with sleet, ice, and snow;
Herons will shiver and so will the crow.
 
Rivers of snot will run from kids’ noses—
They won’t be smelling bouquets of roses.
 
Slippery sidewalks will make old folks fall;
Traffic on freeways will slow to a crawl.
 
But there are some places winter won’t touch:
India, Panama, Guinea, and such.
 
To people who live there, southerly folk,
Winter’s privations are merely a joke.
 
It’s all in your viewpoint, how winter looks.
Remember: Broth spoils with too many cooks.

deserted village—
seven inns of happiness
crumble in the wind

Autumn by autumn
a blaze along the river
outshines every sun.

storm clouds gathering—
perhaps the desert will drink
just before sundown

Blue Monday: Flower

Flower of cloth with petals of blue,
It never pains me to look at you.
 
The more I look, the better I feel.
My life must be on an even keel.

Crow

Crow in the pine tree,
will you ever stop mocking
what you can’t explain?
