Birds do it, bees do it, even earthbound trees do it...
Birds do it, bees do it, even earthbound trees do it…And we have the pollen to prove it. Sticking on car windshields, coating decks, collecting in small crevices of steps and on the sills of open windows, pollen coats our spring world. In local lakes and ponds, pollen creates painterly swirls across the water. Then the wind blows, and cleans the air, and clears the waters (and here I’m desperately wishing it would clean my house, but it doesn’t) and breathing is easy for a day or two. But then it’s time for another, slightly different species of tree to bloom and spread it’s exuberant abundance of male gametes across the land. It doesn’t last forever, this pollen season. But it lasts a long, long time.~K
