A little bridge leads visitors into the Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona.

A small wooden bridge—
I cross into a garden
where deep secrets grow.

  1. You just don’t know there are secrets because they are secrets. That is why you are drawn to the garden over this magic portal.

      Thanks for making me rethink this haiku. I’ve changed “no” to “deep”—and now there is mystery! 😉
