12. I Love ... Lupins


I didn't given them
any thought
at all
until I discovered that they grew
wild
in Newfoundland.

I am not there with them
every year.
I suppose that makes them
even more of a
gift to me.
Elusive.

A few times I have
painstakingly
collected the pods to spread some
summer joy
myself;
but it has never worked.
I can't tell if the soil is 
too rich 
for them or 
too poor.
They simpley refuse to grow.

And so I must
catch a glimpse of
 happy pink and rich rich purple
when I can.
In the wild.

And that, I suppose
is why I cannot cultivate them.
I am meant to love them
where I find them.
