Ragweed grains

ragweed grains
carried on autumn wind ...
not all things
that arrive at my door
do I welcome with grace

    1. many thanks, wendy.

      as I was posting "ragweed," I wondered if it might be especially appropriate right now.

  2. Yes, my first thought was 'how timely!' But not even ragweed pollen stays forever--it, too, can be blown away on the winds of change.

  3. There's always something to annoy us. We just have to wait out the bad season and hope for the best.

  5. Yup, Adelaide and Jennifer, there's always something annoying around the corner. And around here, always a lot of things to aggravate the sinuses.
