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!

Blue Monday: Graveyard Blues

A decorated headstone at Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona.
 
 

A graveyard without some bright blue
Is dismal and dingy to view.
So bring on the paint,
I’m sure you won’t faint
By splashing around the bright hue!

Blue Monday: Photographer

A photographer takes aim on the courthouse lawn in Prescott, Arizona.
 
 

Beyond the photographer’s head
Are traces of blue, green, and red—
A colorful sight
That’s sure to delight
The person who isn’t yet dead!

Blue Monday: Hints of Blue

Hints of blue appear in a cloudy sky, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Southern Arizona.
 
 
A heaven with hints of sky blue
Appears to be welcoming you
To this desert land,
Where vistas are grand—
Come out and enjoy the great view!

Blue Monday: Stone

A decorated stone delights visitors who happen to spot it at Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona.
 


A little stone painted in blue
Can make me start grinning—it’s true!
It’s such a delight
To see something bright,
Especially if it’s bright blue!

Blue Monday: Hanging Heart

A painting by Velma adds a decorative touch to an Airbnb in Yuma, Arizona.
 


You hung out my heart, love, to dry.
I’m sure that I’ll never know why,
So I’m moving on,
By noon I’ll be gone—
I’m not even saying goodbye.

Blue Monday: Hammer

A worker wields a hammer in this detail from a mural, Prescott Public Library, Prescott, Arizona.
 


The hammer comes down with a crash!
Watch out, worker, and do not smash
Your fingers or toes,
For everyone knows
You can’t buy replacements with cash.

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

IMG_0236
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!
