Green T-shirt

30 Comments

A green t-shirt is
Pinched and gripped by pegs,
The line sways as a
Breeze nips frisks and begs

To whisk the shirt away.
Tempestuous green cloth
Wafts in scented drafts,
Clean, it spins and scoffs.

  10. I love hanging out my clothes outside – tumble dryers never quite do it for me. Unfortunately, in winter, that means lots of unsightly laundry on radiators… less poetic.
