Pollen piñatas

My allergies are in full force today, pollen swaying in the air under my nose like a sweetly scented piñata explosion….

The ancient eavesdropper



alder catkins


Rich pigments blink anew 

on alder branches aloft – 

amber-colored catkins,

countless weepy, oblong

piñatas punched

by turbid air, burst forth

showers of pollen-laden haze,

sending me in sneezing fits

to my knees.
