Pollen

covers cars, windows and every manmade surface

with no effect but annoyance and tears.

Yellow green hard-coated to protect male gametes

on wind-loving journeys from stamen to pistil.

Bees and insects giddy with its abundance.

In reading about pollen, I discovered that some plants are known as anemophilous, which literally translates as “wind-loving” while other plants are entomophilous or “insect-loving.” So much love in this pollen-filled air today.
