Balm

The Sonoran Desert, Yuma County, Arizona seems to offer little to anyone passing through.
 


In this barren land
will I find the balm I seek
to ease my longing?

If a blackbird falls
atop the distant mountain,
who will bear witness?

Blue Monday: Christmas in July

A holiday decoration in a Yuma County, Arizona church, hearkens back to cooler times.
 
 

Christmas in July, you say?
Ninety-nine degrees* today!
Surely in this heat St. Nick
Needs an ice cream cone to lick!

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: Desert Sunrise

DSC_0089
Sunrise paints the sky in rainbow hues, Yuma County, Arizona.
 
 

The sun’s coming up, the hills are aglow,
Everything’s eager to get up and go;
Lizards, and rattlers, and doves in the tree
Soon will be stirring—thank goodness, not me!

Plastic Bag

IMG_5578
A discarded plastic bag mars the desert landscape in Yuma County, Arizona.
 


A plastic bag’s dragging the sand,
And marring this beautiful land.
It’s not the bag’s fault,
But that of the dolt
Who tossed it aside with his hand.
