Say, what?

A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

THE GREEN MEANIE


Every spring it surreptitiously flows over the land covering everything in its path with regenerating power.

It wreaks havoc for those who physically are unable to ward off its potent effect floating like a cloud of heavy dust in the air. Sneezing, stuffy noses and runny eyes become commonplace for them.


The green wave seeps into every crack and crevice it can find, hoping to start anew. Man-made home electronics often are reduced to a non-operating state after it settles in the inner workings of the devices. Car washing and table dusting are futile until it subsides.

But its life-giving force is what keeps the world turning.


And when you see the sprouts that shoot out the pollen like a cannon, you can bet that it's Mother Nature saying "gotcha" while giving you the finger.

According to recent reports, the honey bees are mysteriously dwindling this year and scientists fear it my impact pollination and eventually the food chain. Allergy sufferers are secretly hoping it is true!

Diana,

Not much controversy today, but a lovely piece of prose nevertheless. And that third photo, together with the "giving you the finger" image, was really right to the point.
