EVERYTHING in central North Carolina is YELLOW, now.

The cars, the buildings, the trees, the grass, the air, the roads.  All YELLOW.
The surfaces of quiet ponds and surfaces of the backwaters of the lakes.  All YELLOW.
The surfaces of the water reservoirs.  YELLOW.

As one rides their bicycle down the road,
The center-line of the tyres become YELLOW.
White skull-caps become YELLOW.
Black ones, too.

YELLOW because of the pine pollen.

All food has only one taste right now.
You got it -- YELLOW.
Yellow pine pollen.

Come back from a bike ride,
All one can taste is the yellow pollen.
All one can smell -- if not "stopped up" -- is the yellow pollen.
