Hay Fever

Ah, spring...

summer's on the way!


Lovely buds

blossoms follow.


Blossoms show;

then pollen appears...wafting on the wind...

(Ah-ka-Choo! Ah-ka-Choo!)

I love the great outdoors,

trees, flowers, meadows...

(KA-Choo! KA-Choo! KA-Choo!)

Yet cursed by

my grandfather's genes... (Ah-ah-ka-Choo!)

I have become a hermit!

The Truth of the Matter

One of my more recent poems, this was written on May 23 of 2010. It still rings true, though I have found some relief with a new medication.

Most of the time, I'm not really a hermit; I do love being outdoors too much to hide inside all day. So, I do venture out, box of tissues not far away.
