The Coming of Allergies

by on March 8, 2016

Snot runs from my nose,

Eyes water. Sinuses bloom.

God, how I hate spring.


This is the first haiku I’ve written on this blog since “Encounter” in 2013. That one was romantic, I thought. This one is less so.  I do like spring in some respects, but still, when one lives in an area of the country where the annual sinus infection is an event regular as the Kentucky Derby, it gives one an interesting perspective on the seasons.

  1. I liked “sinuses bloom.”

    • There probably aren’t that many haikus on sinus infections, I’ll bet….

      • Probably because the headaches they cause make it hard to count syllables.

  2. Perfect haiku! Not enough ones written about sinuses. Hehe

  3. Congratulations on your editors pick!

Laissez Faire

Letting Life Lead

Delight Through Logical Misery

Taking the sayings,thoughts and themes that make us happy and ruining them with science and logic and then might come from that. Or at least some sort of smugness that's very similiar.


frightfully wondrous things happen here.
