Sensational Haiku Wednesday
Sensational Haiku Wednesday

Welcome to “Sensational Haiku Wednesday!”

Click here for info and background on this weekly event!
The basics:
Haiku is simple! It is 3 non-rhyming lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively (a great way to use your fingers!)

This week’s theme is: Roots


Insidious pear,

roots don't crack sidewalks, flowers

springtime misery.


 My daughter is sooo allergic to Bradford Pear pollen.  It makes her eyes burn red, nose drip, sneeze, befuddles her brain- and if the pollen gets on her skin so does a hive.  Two weeks before they bloom she starts taking Claritin before bed (Claritin clear is not true with her if she takes it in the morning).


  1. Nice haiku. My husband lives on Clariton this tie of year too. :)

  2. OMG I would have never thought about this. It's so true. The mango blossoms over here get to me. Not bad enough that I have to take anything but it's so annoying. Poor Angie... Great Haiku :)

  3. Wow terrible that she has to suffer so but at you know what to avoid! Have a great week!

  4. Nice haiku .. Hope your daughter fares better this spring !

  5. Gah! Poor thing! Makes you want to get an industrial sized hepa-filtered vacuum and suck the pollen off of every tree you can find! Or... maybe I'm just weird to have thought of that. Hope it's not a bad season for her!


I've gotten rid of the word verification for posting comments. To tell the truth, I have trouble reading the new stuff they are using. Feel free to disagree, but spammy or obnoxious comments will not go up.
