Blue Monday: Grit

DSC_0474
The gritty backside of Historic Downtown Yuma, Arizona.
 
 

The sky, not the wall, is clear blue.
The wall is redbrick (as you knew);
No window in sight
To let in the light—
Forget about rooms with a view!

Amiss

DSC_0534 (1)
Flags of three nations—Japan, Mexico, and the United States—fly in Historic Downtown Yuma, Arizona.
 


A national flag flying free
Should symbolize great harmony,
But when people scorn
The land where they’re born,
Something’s amiss, don’t you see?

Blue Monday: Shabby Sign

A shabby but still legible sign in Historic Downtown Yuma, Arizona
 


The sign may be shabby and battered,
It’s edges may even be tattered.
Yet one thing is clear:
Old Yuma’s still here—
A message that always has mattered.
