languid afternoon—
the holiness of water
mixed with blackbird’s song

Blue Monday: Photographer

DSC_0043 (1)
A photographer takes aim on the courthouse lawn in Prescott, Arizona.
 
 

Beyond the photographer’s head
Are traces of blue, green, and red—
A colorful sight
That’s sure to delight
The person who isn’t yet dead!

Blue Monday: Hammer

A worker wields a hammer in this detail from a mural, Prescott Public Library, Prescott, Arizona.
 


The hammer comes down with a crash!
Watch out, worker, and do not smash
Your fingers or toes,
For everyone knows
You can’t buy replacements with cash.

This painting is sure to delight
The children who see it, all right.
With colorful hues
It’s full of good news—
There’s no darkness here, only light.

Burro

IMG_6282
Detail from a painting, Prescott Public Library, Prescott, Arizona
 


An old man and his burro
Are heading for the hills.
They hope to find some nuggets
Among the rocks and rills,
Some nuggets gold and gleaming
To make the old man rich.
The burro doesn’t care much—
He’d rather balk and bitch.

Blue Monday: Gears

IMG_6254
Detail from a mural, Prescott Public Library, Prescott, Arizona
 


Round and round and round they go,
Sometimes fast and sometimes slow.
Gears are turning here and there,
Gears are turning everywhere!
 
They can turn a Ferris wheel,
They can turn a shaft of steel;
They can make Big Ben run true,
Raise and lower great locks too.
 
Gears are turning here and there,
Gears are turning everywhere;
Made to grind, but not to blast,
Gears can move both slow and fast.
