Bougainvillea in bloom, Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona
 


Bright are the blossoms
Near the old tomb;
Brightly they greet me,
Banishing gloom.

  2. The contrast between the life in the blossoms & the death in the tomb is striking.

  4. Life and death so close together, maybe that’s where we need the the bright colors the most.

  5. Neatly reminding us that attitude is a choice. Thank you.

  6. Oh, this is beautiful to think of those bright blossoms of hope in a location that holds so much grief….and I can see how they would banish gloom!
