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.

A padlock’s a strong little thing,
But good for protecting your bling.
One click and it’s set
As tight as a net,
So no one can get anything!

Deepening winter—
I look in vain for snowflakes
on the palm tree’s fronds.

Crossing the footbridge,
I find a desert garden,
but no gardener.
