Washing on a Windy Day.....

Washing wetly snapping,

responding to a cheeky wind that wants to play;

workman's denim plays along

unyielding at first to the wind's game of Snap!

Pink flush of cheerleaders

embraced within the parameters of sheltered walls

fly high with excited moves

hold tightly to each other with pegged hands.

Everyone wins in the end

participants dried and ready for another day;

the wind withdrawing satisfied

with yet another great day of playful tussle.....


Merril @ dVerse has given us a prompt to pen an ekphrastic poem to do with the wind, using one of the paintings she has suggested.

I chose ~ Franz Marc, Flatternde Wäsche im Wind (1906)
