Blue Monday: Smidgen of Blue

DSC_0212 (4)

Clouds cover nearly all the sky in the Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona.
 


Only a smidgen of blue
Peeps through the clouds; wouldn’t you
Be pleased to see more?
That’s what we’re here for:
To honor the most brilliant hue!

Wind

Wilderness way
Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona.
 


In the wilderness
wind keeps erasing the path
I plan to follow.

Presence

Version 2
Daybreak in the Sonoran Desert, Yuma County, Arizona.
 


October morning—
an owl that no one can see
makes its presence known.

Owl

Version 2
A great horned owl perches in a palo verde tree in the Sonoran Desert, Yuma County, Arizona.
 


One morning an owl in a tree
Appeared to be staring at me,
Or maybe he glared;
It’s not that I cared,
It’s just what owls do, don’t you see?

Greening

Version 2
An ocotillo sports new green leaves after recent monsoons in the Sonoran Desert, Maricopa County, Southern Arizona.
 


In the midday heat
a greening ocotillo
offers little shade.

Good Sign

DSC_0115 (3)

Summer dawn in the Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona.
 
 
Is your world better than mine?
I find the desert divine!
Although it is sere,
And not much is here,
I take that as a good sign!

Summer sunrise in the Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona.
 


Early in the month
a door in heaven opens,
letting light spill out.

Dying

Shadows lengthen at day’s end, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
  


Wilderness evening—
the breath of a dying dove
settles in the dust.

How many blossoms,
how many starlit evenings
until the world ends?
