WHY? said...

the clean wash is hung
now i walk through the scented
garden, the breeze blows

(I tried:)

The stone cottage waits;
white linen snaps in the breeze
before the spring rain.

Every Photo Tells A Story said...

Hanging the white sheets,
I hear the ravens calling
black feathers ruffle.

Beyond the clothes line...there....deep in the woods. Look closely! Do you see it?

breezy laundry floats
springs lovely hues wash over
brings me peaceful sighs

Sheets are Hanging
hung with joy
drying in sun

I don't know how to do haiku but I am aware of the rules. Sorry. That's mine.
Have a great day.

Never tried haiku before
I just love the painting
and dropped by to say hello.

Beautiful summer
Shedding shirts to beat the heat
Blasted mosquitoes!

Bale of Hay Outside
Clean White Clothes Upon The Line
Portray The Good Life



When I see laundry on the line,
It almost makes me shudder,
Cause it brings about the memory of
My 20 baby brothers

Birth Control was something,
Of which Papa held no worth,
And Mama turned professional,
At the art of giving birth

Growing old, my Papa realized,
Things were getting pretty rough,
So he went to see a doctor,
When he decided "Enough's enough"

Kiddingly, the doctor joked,
"It's time to cut it off"
Well, Papa took him literally,
Today, he just plays golf.
