September Lupine

exploring in a back yard
we may find a little joy,

a little extra colour,
september sunshine

a little extra life.


lupines grow wild,
but may be planted.

famous for aphids,
sucking life's juices


a pattern in pink:
bright, warm, cheery

lupines might survive 
in our garden 
next year,

if hungry aphids 
don't get them first.


a little cool water 
in their roots

is all they seem to 
want or really need.
