Amiss

DSC_0534 (1)
Flags of three nations—Japan, Mexico, and the United States—fly in Historic Downtown Yuma, Arizona.
 


A national flag flying free
Should symbolize great harmony,
But when people scorn
The land where they’re born,
Something’s amiss, don’t you see?

Blue Monday: Shabby Sign

DSC_0510
A shabby but still legible sign in Historic Downtown Yuma, Arizona
 


The sign may be shabby and battered,
It’s edges may even be tattered.
Yet one thing is clear:
Old Yuma’s still here—
A message that always has mattered.

Sunflower Blossoms

IMG_8328
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.
