Long Before Daybreak

Version 2
A great horned owl perches in a tree in the Sonoran Desert, Yuma County, Arizona.
 


Long before daybreak
an owl in my backyard oak
tells me its secrets.

Fading

The winter sun sets over Yuma County, Arizona.
 


Day fades into dusk—
a dove returns to her nest,
singing one last song.

Blue Monday: Winter Afternoon

DSC_0291
A few clouds and lots of blue sky make a perfect winter afternoon in Yuma County, Arizona.
 
 

Despite a few clouds, the sky shines bright blue.
It’s perfect for all: for me and for you.
Even in winter when walking this land,
Our faces and fingers seem to get tanned.

Blue Monday: Blurred Image

 photo DSC_0213_zpsa2ui8qpa.jpg
Photobucket is holding all my images hostage, including this one of old fruit crates in Yuma County, Arizona.
 
 

Photobucket blurs the image,
Adds their watermark as well.
Do they think I’ll pay a ransom?
All I’m going to do is yell!
