Blue Monday: Books

Detail from a mural at the Prescott Public Library, Prescott, Arizona
 


A stack of good books by your bed
Is better than any old med.
So, here’s to your health,
Vim, vigor, and wealth—
Make sure that you get them all read!

On a shady walk
a question goes unanswered
until six o’clock.

Rose of Wisdom

A gnarled tree beside a path at Willow Lake, Prescott, Arizona

 

By the lake a pathway leads
Through the dry and tangled weeds
To a place where no one goes
But the ones who seek The Rose.
 
Holy, holy is the day!
Holy, holy is the way!

 
Rose of wisdom, fair and pure,
May your root and branch endure
In the hearts that hold you fast—
There, O Rose, bloom forth at last.
 
Holy, holy is the day!
Holy, holy is the way!

April afternoon—
the holiness of water
and a blackbird’s song

Ruins

Stone ruins at Willow Lake, Prescott, Arizona
  


One by one the stones
drop from the old house’s walls
till nothing remains.

autumn afternoon—
even the blooming thistle
will soon fade away

how the light plays tricks—
a mountain in the distance
seems to shrug and shift
