TREE BUDS ARE CALLING

TREE BUDS ARE CALLING

Seventy degrees at last,

Tree buds growing out fast…

Flowers sprawling

Bursting with pollen,

Antihistamine sales forecast!

Hence those magnolia tree

Catkins are on a spree…

With flower petals fallin’

WHACK! Dumping pollen,

Over cars, windows and thee!

WARM WEATHER HAIKU

WARM WEATHER HAIKU

Air conditioners

Softly flowing night time wind…

Cool enough, without.

Parking in the shade,

Handicapped zone is filled up…

Worth the extra walk.

Wild families grow,

No fishercats seen this year…

The woods hide many lives.

Flowers open wide,

Bees work among the petals…

Aroma lures all.
