Haiku Wednesday: Lupines


Sky and mountain sing:
“Welcome, lupines, home again—
touch our hearts with fire.”

      Thanks, Jenn. This was about the last photo I took on Saturday, because the light was fading and my camera’s batteries were dying.

  1. This reminds me of a story in our reading book called Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney. She’s nicknamed The Lupine Lady because she spreads the seeds every where across the country. It’s beautiful, but not as beautiful as your photograph.

      The Lupine Lady! Sounds like a flowery female Johnny Appleseed! Thanks for dropping by, Bellezza! 🙂

  2. Can you find lupines
    Amidst the wolves and bracken
    At Guadeloupe?

      You’re into that wolf imagery, aren’t you, JzB? Must be that wickedness of yours coming to the fore! 😉

  3. ahh looks like “blue blazes” are afire there!
    lovely work, and lovely to call attention to nature’s handiwork

      Thanks, LarryG. Funny that you should mention “blue blazes.” I was trying to work up a haiku with that kind of imagery in it, but, alas, nothing came of my endeavors…
