Here's my entry:


THE POLLEN HAS FALLEN! (WC 128)

By Michelle S. Kennedy


The pollen has fallen!

It’s filling the sky

Its dust fills the air

It’s sneaky and sly.


It covers my clothes.

I’m under attack!

It’s powerful particles

fill every crack.


I run for the hills ‘cause

It’s making me sneeze.

My eyes trickle tears

as I cough and I wheeze.


I try to escape,

but like parmesan cheese,

its fine yellow powder

now sprinkles the breeze.


There’s nowhere to hide.

ACHOO! Spring is here.

But summer is coming.

I must persevere…


Then suddenly thunderbolts

clap overhead,

and rain begins falling.

The pollen has fled.


Out comes the sun

with its brilliant, bright light

the pollen once fallen

is nowhere in sight.


There’s trees sprouting leaves,

new blooms on the flowers.

and pollen-free moments

all thanks to the showers.
