Not a Turkey

Not a Turkey

nothing good to eat
      no turkey feast

last year they bloomed
thrilled somebody else

we latecomers benefit
   from gardeners past

showing crazy colours
   the image confuses

it was actually different
      (very different)

coneflower craziness
but then the colours
      were long gone

   what was left was
a desiccated brown
ready to fall as dust

into desiccated earth
   this desert place

we call it home but 
   we are always lost
