NaPoWriMo 2017: day 25


the ground drenched in pollen today 
my breathing not so easy 
I didn't get a whole lot of sleep 
the rain doesn't seem as friendly as it usually does 

my breathing was not so easy 
despite all my meds, in an antihistamine haze
the rain didn't seem as friendly as usual 
I spent the day feeling mad at my lungs 

because despite all these meds, still the haze
of wishing I could go photograph flowers 
left me feeling so mad at my lungs 
and oh so grateful for the invention of benadryl 

wishing I was photographing cherry blossoms 
as the ground was drenched in their pollen 
and me on my sofa oh so grateful for zyrtec
even though I didn't get much sleep
