blustering spring breezes bring endless sneezes

sore naked lips, dry and chapped

with weepy red eyes tearing

and a throat that screams to be scratched

only to find minimal relief in more coughing

or in an over-the-counter remedy in a box

all this mountain misery to endure through a season of pollen’s overwhelming haze

on into spring’s last blossoming of breezy and colorful daze
