Blue Monday: Graveyard Blues

DSC_0150
A decorated headstone at Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona.
 
 

A graveyard without some bright blue
Is dismal and dingy to view.
So bring on the paint,
I’m sure you won’t faint
By splashing around the bright hue!

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!

Window

A surrealistic painting of a winter sky adds a dash of mystery to the wall of a home in Yuma, Arizona.
 


Wide-open window—
a magpie on the mountain
seems to know my name.

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.
