Blue Monday: Stone

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!

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.

Blue Monday: Hanging Heart

A painting by Velma adds a decorative touch to an Airbnb in Yuma, Arizona.
 


You hung out my heart, love, to dry.
I’m sure that I’ll never know why,
So I’m moving on,
By noon I’ll be gone—
I’m not even saying goodbye.

Blue Monday: Padlock

A padlock secures a building at Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona.
 


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!
