Blooming Trees

The trees are blooming
and there is a breeze.
Palo Verde flowers
are making me sneeze.

I take pills
so I don't wheeze
during this season
of allergies.

    Thank goodness, I don't have allergies, but I have friends who do.  This is not a good time of year for them.  When I lived in North Carolina and the pine trees would bloom, everything would receive a coat of yellow pollen.  If it rained, there would be a yellow river flowing in the gutters taking the rain away.
    Here is your poetry challenge for today.  Can you write a list poem about all the things that make you sneeze?  Have you ever sneezed when the sun light hit you directly in your eyes?  Boy, is that a good way to learn not to look directly at the sun.  Have fun writing your poem.


  1. Gotta love spring, even if you have allergies!

    1. Agreed, Linda! We've been getting a lot of dusty winds. Ugh!

  2. My husband has terrific allergies and this time of year is very noisy around here. Thanks for the laugh.

    1. Gosh, thanks for mentioning the noise. Rosi, I hadn't thought about that and it would make a good verse for a poem.
