Marigolds

Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona
 


We biked into the garden,
Where marigolds did bloom.
We thought we’d have a picnic
In this fine outdoor room.
 
We spread a checkered blanket,
Near where we laid our bikes;
We nibbled cheese, sipped some wine,
And listened to the shrikes.

Broom

The blue-handled broom,
weary from too much sweeping,
sags in the corner
as if an afternoon nap
might help revive its bristles.

Turning the corner
that crumbled ages ago,
I search for a lamp.
