To the setting sun

she has learned by heart.

for eternity.

consoled by birdsong.

Blue Monday: Smidgen of Blue

DSC_0212 (4)

Clouds cover nearly all the sky in the Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona.
 


Only a smidgen of blue
Peeps through the clouds; wouldn’t you
Be pleased to see more?
That’s what we’re here for:
To honor the most brilliant hue!
