Hello bentfeather Haiku!
A new thread up so quickly!
Poets posting and
Dough Nuts sometimes are sticky.
Ah the joys of spring:
Stuffy nose or else it's running,
Asthma in the coming,
My heart, it is a-humming
with Albuterol and Flo-vent,
Sudafed and sleep's spent,
Ah pollen that I am not allegic to,
Aftershaves and perfumes ewww,
The mysteries life poses,
Like Flonase smelling like roses.
Morning, Ms Feather!
Breakfast is being served out on the veranda this morning. With complimentary albuterol.
Bwhahahahha! Your poem speaks to me. Especially the aftershave and perfume part. Elevators? Good Morning Knitting!
What's wrong with you?
Can't you just bring the
ding dang donuts, Unc?
Not sticky tho;
sticky is icky.
Hairsprays, deoderants, cleaning solvents, paint, lacquer, and several other things too....
LOL cute poem!
Good morning, Peilkan!
Such a lovely place to have breakfast. Thank You.
Ah, the allergies of spring abound
everyone packing tissues by the pound
sneezing, sneezing, pollens explode
hoarse voices making us all sound like toads.
Yep. Haven't had a problem with paint and lacquer...yet. However, my list seems to be growing as I get older. The first was perfume. And hairspray? I have to make hair appointments in the early morning before the salon is steeped in it. Cleaning solvents have progressed to the level where I hold my breath when I'm in the aisle to pick up dish soap. I am very thankful that I do not suffer from allergies to flowers and plants in general. Just the chemicals used to copy their fragrance.
Glad you like it Ms Feather. I've been told that the Lair is a magical place where anything can happen. So, the Lair can have a veranda in a full-blooming garden during March. Don't forget about the ballet class later on!
Some say it magic
some say it peace
some say it's quiet
and some a change of pace.
I hope it's all of these things in one
with lots of fun packed in, too,
with haiku, and poetry flowing freely
dancing with the muse.
