Among the palm fronds
the song of a mourning dove
lingers long past noon.

Marigolds

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.

Insect

A stone painted to resemble an insect, Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona
 


A desert stone was posing,
Posing as a bug;
A hungry raven spied it,
Thought it was a slug.
 
The raven swooped down on it,
Hoping for a snack,
But when it saw the bug was stone,
It gave up the attack.
