Blue Monday: Happy Kid

Version 2
Student drawing for a proposed book cover, Tucson Festival of Books, Tucson, Arizona.
 


This happy kid sings quite a lot.
However, a diva she’s not.
She bleats like a goat
That’s lost its fur coat—
She sure gives it all that she’s got!

Blue Monday: Labyrinth & Prayer Flags

Tibetan prayer flags flutter near a labyrinth at a church in Phoenix, Arizona.
 


A circular path is the best;
Along the whole way you can rest.
When you go around,
Not making a sound,
It’s hard to be other than blest!

Blue Monday: Long and Lonesome Road

An unpaved road waits for adventurers at at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Southern Arizona.
 


They say the best roads are out West,
And that those who take them are blest.
But if they get lost,
There’s such a high cost,
Why bother with getting so stressed?

Blue Monday: Artists Retreat

Hogan at Hubbell
The stone hogan, at Hubbell Trading Post, Ganado, Arizona often serves as a retreat for artists.
 


This little retreat’s made of stone,
A great place for being alone
And working on art.
You’re ready to start?
Good! Make sure you turn off your phone!

Blue Monday: Barrel Cactus

Barrel cactus, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.
 


High above the cactuses in the clear blue sky
Winter rainclouds sometimes come, sometimes multiply.
Not today, however, there’s not a cloud in sight;
Perfect for the cactuses: hot and dry and bright!

Blue Monday: Pickup

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: Whimsical Painting

A whimsical painting adorns a wall in the children’s section of the Prescott, Arizona Public Library.
 


This painting is sure to delight
The children who see it, all right.
With colorful hues
It’s full of good news—
There’s no darkness here, only light.
