Hint

Version 2
A windmill guards the entrance to the Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden , Yuma, Arizona.
 


August afternoon—
clouds passing near the windmill
seem to hint at rain.

In midsummer’s heat
some dowdy old sunflowers
put on their last show.

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.
