Our Picnic

Campground in Giant Sequoia National Monument, California.
 


Our picnic’s almost over, and night will soon be here;
We’ll crawl into our big blue tent and then just disappear!
Our picnic in the forest was lovelier than most,
But one thing marred its beauty: We’d no s’mores to toast!

Blue Monday: Global Friendship

IMG_9071
A mural in Stockton, California celebrates friendships around the world.
 


The hand of a friend may be brown,
Or maybe it’s white in this town.
Whatever the hue,
I know this is true:
A friend lifts you up when you’re down.
