Sunflower Blossoms

Sunflowers bloom at Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona
 


Sunflower blossoms remind me of you
And how you would smile while tying your shoe
To ready yourself for journeys afar;
I keep these memories stored in a jar
 
Along with a pebble and a small bone,
And feathers I found while walking alone
That summer day at the edge of the lake,
Knowing your journey had been a mistake;
 
For somewhere afar, you vanished from sight,
Your footprints erased by wind in the night;
No one could find you, though they looked for days—
You’d gone just like sunlight burns away haze.
 
Many years later, the riddle goes on:
How did you vanish like darkness at dawn?
I have no answer, but this much is true:
Sunflower blossoms remind me of you.

Blue Monday: Windmill

A windmill no longer used at Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona.


This windmill, though rusted and worn,
Deserves some attention, not scorn.
It needs a facelift—
Fresh paint is a gift—
And then it’ll shine night and morn!
