Blue Monday: Stone

A decorated stone delights visitors who happen to spot it at Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona.
 


A little stone painted in blue
Can make me start grinning—it’s true!
It’s such a delight
To see something bright,
Especially if it’s bright blue!

Crossing the Bridge

DSC_0209
Visitors may cross a bridge to enter Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona.
 


I crossed a wooden footbridge through shadows dark and bold,
In search of buried treasure that lay there from of old.
Some said the place was Eden, but others would not tell,
And so I sought the wizard, who lived beside the well:
“O wizard full of wonder, I seek for coins of gold;
Will I find them buried here among the shadows bold?”
It seemed a thousand minutes until the wizard spoke:
“You are the victim, I’m afraid, of a cruel joke.
The only treasures waiting for those who cross the bridge
Are desert plants that bloom in sight all along the ridge.”
I looked and saw a cactus with yellow blossoms bold,
And knew I’d found a treasure worth more than any gold.

Even deadly thorns
cannot keep me from the way
that’s prepared for me.

Stage

A retired tractor lives out its last days in the tranquility of the Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona.
  


An old green tractor
becomes a shadowy stage
for spring’s danse macabre.
