that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.

I’m still learning to identify southern Arizona wildflowers and one that I always recognize by name is sneezeweed. But, despite its name, sneezeweed does not cause an allergic reaction. Actually, I prefer another one of its names, Helen’s Flower. In Greek mythology, Helenium emerge from the tears of Helen of Troy.

My Nose Garden

I have rowses and rowses of noses and noses
And why they all growses I really can’t guess.
No lilies or roses, just cold-catching noses,
And when they all blowses, it’s really a mess.

They runs and they glowses, these sneezity noses,
They drips and they flowses, they blooms and they dies.
But you can’t bring no noses to fine flower showses
And really expect them to give you a prize.

But each mornin’ I goeses to water with hoses
These rowses of noses that I cannot sell,
These red sniffly noses that cause all my woeses,
Why even the crowses complain that they smell.

Why noses, not roses? Well, nobody knowses.
Why do you supposes they growses this thick?
But since there’s no roses come gather some noses —
I guarantee each one’s a good nose to pick.

— Shel Silverstein
