On this New Year’s Day,
I recall an old story
of a baby’s birth.

How many clouds does it take
to spin a windmill?

an old tree full of secrets
keeps them to itself.

Oh, for some tasty ice cream from this little shop in Yuma, Arizona!


When the lockdown ends,
let’s go out for some ice cream
with a dozen friends.

Blue Monday: Abandoned Motel

DSC_0452
Graffiti defaces an abandoned motel north of Flagstaff, Arizona.
 
 

Graffiti mars the old hotel,
It’s feeling rather blue.
Is there some way to cheer it up?
I don’t know, do you?
 
~~ ## ~~
 
deepening autumn—
the longing of broken things
to be whole again
