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!

for our careless ways?

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

IMG_7663
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!
