Collaborative Haiku Poem – アレルギー

the budding season
fungi and pollens
float in the air

(Yoko version)
木の芽時胞子に花粉漂いぬ
きのめどき ほうし に かふん ただよいぬ

breathing air
allergens slip into my body
no thanks!

(Michiko version)
息吸って進入禁止アレルゲン
いき すって しんにゅう きんし アレルゲン

It is indeed unfortunate that the arrival of Spring coincides with that of the allergy season! You can wear goggle or masks when you plan to spend time outdoors, or take anti-histamine pills or eye drops. If you suffer severe allergy symptoms, it is best to see an allergy specialist and ask about immunotherapy.

春到来!の喜びも、眼チカチカ鼻水ゆるゆるのアレルギーシーズン到来と同時とは誠に遺憾。屋外で過ごす際はゴーグル眼鏡やマスクを使用したり、抗アレルギー薬を服用あるいは点眼しますが、症状がひどい人はアレルギー専門医による減感作療法を受けることが薦められています。
