  1. Ha! I had pollen mixed with frost this morning...so weird and an unattractive mush for sure. I have so enjoyed your haiku diary.

  4. Your haiku is a perfect way to document one detail of the season. I notice the pollen on my porch chair.

  6. Yes! This is what prompted a haiku earlier this week, that darn yellow dust. Your glaze of gold sounds so much prettier.

  7. It's a good thing cars don't sneeze! Pollen is not my friend.

  10. I've been sneezing my head off and rubbing my eyes all week, Mary Lee. You've captured pollen perfectly! -- Christie @ https://wonderingandwondering.wordpress.com/

  11. I know that golden hue well! At least on the maroon, it's a great color combo. ;)

  17. I reply with my own:
    Yellow-green or green-yellow

    Steam and pollen mix and can't decide if to rise or fall.
    Yellow-green or green-yellow, this powder-paste coats the dashboard.
    With a finger I record the date: Beltane 2010.

  19. Not sure if my response came through so here it is again. Ah! Allergy season is upon us and in my case even the mask I wear is giving me symptoms. Your haiku states what is happening quite well.
