DSC_0212 (1)
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

IMG_0501 (1)
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.

Tree Hugger

Student artwork at a Yuma County, Arizona high school.
  


A tree-hugging bird is a sight
That’s visible only in light,
For like you and me
The bird in the tree
Finds comfort in sleeping at night.

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!

Blue Monday: Long and Lonesome Road

An unpaved road waits for adventurers at at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Southern Arizona.
 


They say the best roads are out West,
And that those who take them are blest.
But if they get lost,
There’s such a high cost,
Why bother with getting so stressed?

Blue Monday: Artists Retreat

Hogan at Hubbell
The stone hogan, at Hubbell Trading Post, Ganado, Arizona often serves as a retreat for artists.
 


This little retreat’s made of stone,
A great place for being alone
And working on art.
You’re ready to start?
Good! Make sure you turn off your phone!

Almond Blossoms


The blossoms that Vincent van Gogh
Painted so long, long ago
Have not lost their sheen;
They’re still white and clean
As almond blooms should be: like snow.
