Blue Monday & Ruby Tuesday Too: Corn Rain

PHOTO.Yuma corn mural
A mural in Yuma, Arizona celebrates the gift of corn. One photo, two memes.
 
  

She cannot see the grain/Ripening on hill and plain;/She cannot feel the rain/Upon her hand.
  
From “Dream Land” by Christina Rossetti


What if I could see no grain
Ripening on hill and plain?
What if there would fall no rain
On my beans and corn?
 
Fear not, child, for it will rain
On the hills and on the plain.
Beans and pumpkins, corn and grain
Will then drink their fill.
 
See, the rains have come at last!
Days of dust and drought are past!
Soon enough you’ll break your fast,
Eating beans and corn.
 
Corn is raining from the sky!
Wipe away your tears, don’t cry!
Fill your baskets, pile them high
With this blessed feast!

Blue Monday & Ruby Tuesday Too: ‘Mother Never Lies’

Yuma.May.2013 054
Mother and Child greet the faithful at Our Lady of Guadalupe Mission, Yuma, Arizona. One photo, two memes.
 
  

Mother never lies and never, ever tells tall tales.
Truth alone flies from her tongue, truth alone prevails.
If she told a whopper, birds would plummet from the skies,
And seas would shrink to puddles, for Mother never lies.

Blue Monday & Ruby Tuesday Too: Pandemic Art

DSC_0200
Brightly painted stones can be found at the Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona. One photo, two memes.
 
  

Perhaps these stones were painted by someone who foresaw
The plague that’s pounced upon us with sharpened tooth and claw.
Perhaps graffiti artists will take a hint or two
Before they spray pandemic art, messing up the view!

Artifacts are housed in the Greenlee Historical Museum, Clifton, Arizona. One photo, two memes.
 
  

I hear no raindrops dripping
From the rooftop to the street;
Every sound’s been stifled by
Arizona’s searing heat!

Blue Monday & Ruby Tuesday Too: Empty Church

Clifton.May.2013 172
This church in Clifton, Arizona was empty on Easter Sunday, as were many others around the world. One photo, two memes.
 
  

Although the church stayed empty (the virus had its way),
Some sounds of joy still echoed—from where, no one could say.
Perhaps a novice angel was practicing her praise,
Or maybe oaks were rumbling that there’d be better days.
At any rate, the praise-notes keep going on and on—
Never-ending songs of joy long after Easter’s gone.
