Blue Memories

} i.

a Montana mountain pass

1300 feet below
a little lake
mirrors
the cloudless-blue day

looking west
waves and waves
of peaks
fade
into a distant-blue haze
 
} ii.

the Minnesota River Valley

an early spring day

new-spring greens shimmer
against a blue sky
the color
of summer water

an Indigo Bunting
on a broken willow branch
sings
into the blue-blue day
