Spring Sniffles


Image found at Flicker.

Stuffy nose,
pounding head.
Maybe someone ought to go to bed.

But phones gonna ring,
and email is gonna sprawl,
with a stuffy nose running and head ready to fall.

Springtime sniffles don't make any sense,
with crocus blooming and sweaters hanging over the fence.

I want to soak up all the sun I can stand,
and leave spring sniffles behind me like a too-long winter that finally says... "Uncle", shrugs it's shoulders
and walks away with open empty hands.
