Like carousel
All is spinning around
Let me find a grip and hold on

Blink now
Close your eyes, yes
Calmly take a deep breath
Equilibrium needs time to

Head up
Rise slowly
Walk with cautious steps
Find your meds and take them, sit down
Rest now

Close eyes
Breath slowly, now
Your motion sickness pill
Will work in due time, maybe-
Oh, man!

-Donald R. Sansbury, 2013

~Do you suffer during allergy season or on trips? How do you cope?
