Allergy Season

This time of year
I can't go near
the Palo Verde trees.

Bright yellow blossoms
don't attract possums,
instead swarms of bees.

Those blasted tree blooms
make my allergies boom -
all I can do is cough.

I try hard not to sneeze,
or drip when I wheeze.
I'm ready for the blooms to fall off.

I think I might send this to my son & family, all three have terrible 'blooming' allergies, & you've hit it right. They have a hard time admiring the blooms like everyone else, because they're so miserable. So much for spring celebration! Thanks Bridget!

I've been sneezing up a storm today--but am happy to have the sun, warmth, and flowers. I can relate to your poem!

I love how specific your poem is. And I love your cough/fall off rhyme. It made me giggle.

Oh, I feel so bad for allergy sufferers! My daughter developed an allergy to Palo Verdes when we moved here. Things have gotten better for her, but spring blooms are a challenge. Hope your son's family finds relief, Linda. = )

Bless you, Buffy! It's a mixed bag with spring - finally warming up but having to deal with allergies.= )

Thanks, Liz! When the Palo Verdes bloom the city is full of yellow flowering trees, but anyone with an allergy is complaining. I'm glad you got a giggle from my poem. That makes me happy. = )
