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: Snowman Ornament

IMG_9636
A smiling snowman brings extra cheer to a Christmas tree.
 
 

A little old man made of snow
Makes even the saddest eyes glow
When he cries out clear,
“O Happy New Year!”
We’re lucky to have him, you know?

Blue Monday: Lighting the Sky

DSC_0009
The sky lights up over Wellton, Arizona on a December morning.
 
 

Long ago and far away there shone a brilliant light.
Even now the wise among us tremble at the sight.
The reason for their quaking is plain as plain can be:
In an unsuspecting face they glimpse eternity.

Blue Monday: Playing the Blues

DSC_0045
A trumpeter plays the blues, resting his music on a blue music stand at an outdoor event in Yuma, Arizona.
 
 

Play me some blues, man, play them with soul,
Play on your trumpet, making me whole.
Fill in the blank spots with your sweet art,
Play me some blues, man, play from your heart.

Blue Monday: Patch of Blue

DSC_0282
An old horse-drawn wagon slowly returns to dust at Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona.
 
 

Beyond the broken wagon, we see a patch of blue,
And head in that direction without a trace of rue.
We know that we will find there a quiet, peaceful place,
And so we journey onward toward that azure space.

Blue Monday: Veteran’s Grave

DSC_0152
A veteran’s grave at Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona has been decorated with colorful stones.
 
 

Some stones painted red
To honor the dead,
And some painted blue
(The desert sky’s hue)
Will serve to remind
All those left behind
That love’s never lost,
No matter the cost.

Blue Monday: Abandoned Motel

DSC_0452
Graffiti defaces an abandoned motel north of Flagstaff, Arizona.
 
 

Graffiti mars the old hotel,
It’s feeling rather blue.
Is there some way to cheer it up?
I don’t know, do you?
 
~~ ## ~~
 
deepening autumn—
the longing of broken things
to be whole again
