Stone

 photo DSC_0002205_zpsudrxjknd.jpg
Someone left a stone at Roxaboxen Park, Yuma, Arizona. (Read why people leave stones at Roxaboxen.)
 


Left for passersby to see,
This wee stone delighted me.
When I saw its shade of blue,
I thought right away of you
And the way the summer skies
Show themselves in your bright eyes.

Broken

 photo DSC_0046_zpssocsxpdo.jpg
Ceramic decoration left by a young visitor, reduced to potsherds, Roxaboxen Park, Yuma, Arizona
 


I thought a little paste would work,
I even tried some glue,
Hoping that my handiwork
Would hold the shards of blue.
 
But glue and paste do nothing,
As far as I can see,
To piece together something
That’s broken as can be.

painted on a stone
taken from a dragon’s den
minuscule stories
that no one can decipher—
puzzling are the sacred runes

The message is clear
without a Rosetta Stone:
neat story, neat place.

by midsummer’s fearsome heat—
tokens of the quest

On the longest day
stones huddle in the shadows
to escape the sun.

Remembering

 photo Roxaboxenriverstones_zps295e2420.jpg
River stone, Roxaboxen Park, Yuma, Arizona
 


in a desert land
stones from rivers far away
muttering dark tales
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
fingering these stones
remembering the builders
and the destroyers

When the stars retreat,
watercolors by Cézanne
fill the void with light.
