Blue Monday: Pickup

IMG_5529
Plywood art adorns a wall in Ajo, Arizona.
 


A pickup that’s painted sky blue
Can carry a small sort of zoo:
Let’s start with six hogs,
Ten cats, and twelve dogs—
I’m sure that’s a full load, aren’t you?

Blue Monday: Plaza

IMG_5320
The plaza in Ajo, Arizona is a gathering place for locals and visitors alike.
 


There’s blue in the flag, and blue in the sky.
Palm trees will crumble to dust bye and bye.
 
When the dust settles, all will be well,
But in the meantime? It’s hard to tell!

Space

Apartments and studios for artists, artisans, and creative business people, Ajo, Arizona.


An artist’s deepest longing
Is for a sacred space
Where she can paint or scribble,
And serve the human race.
 
Sometimes a lucky artist
Will find a place called home;
But if she is ill-fated,
Then she is bound to roam.

Perhaps

Rugged mountains near Ajo, Arizona
 


Perhaps a blackbird
will swoop down from the mountain,
perhaps the full moon.

Through the wilderness
a family of dreamers
hastens hand in hand.

Blue Monday: Mary

Mary, are you feeling blue?
Are you feeling weary?
All the beggars come to you,
And their eyes are bleary.
 
Seeking favors from your hand,
They clamor and they shout.
Is it more than you can stand
To have them round about?
 
But your ways are not our ways,
Your hands are filled with grace,
Which you pour out on the strays
Of our ungrateful race.

To a quiet place
I come with my empty cup,
but who will fill it?
