    You’ve written soo much since I last visited your page!

    “where these waters flow

    My favourite 😀

      heartshapedlies,
      Most of this writing has been in the last few days. This month being national poetry month, there are many challenges going on on poetry sites. I’ve restricted myself to two, and I am beginning to think one would have been wiser. Thanks for checking in and commenting. I really like that haiku too.

    Sheets hung on the line to dry are the best. I am waiting for the weather to warm enough here to do that too. I like the visual you inspire in this haiku, my dear. Very nice.

      Technobabe,
      I so agree with you. We’ve been doing load after load of laundry (collecting dirty clothes is a longtime hobby of mine). The scent is wonderful. The last two days were perfect for it, but we had a cold front blow in this afternoon and cool things down almost too much. Glad you’re enjoying the poems. I am really enjoying writing them. Seems a goal as spice to the creative stew. 😉

    The first one I can see right now as the spring winds are whipping.

    The second one seems so sad.

    Both very intense in opposite ways.

      Lisa,
      We’ve been doing laundry non-stop (I’m good at collecting dirty clothes) since the weather turned warm. Everything smells soooo wonderful. I loved doing both of these poems because of the intensity in them. Thank you for your perceptive comment.

    Nice interpretation of the prompt. I’m still battling with mine.

      tillybud,
      Thank you for the encouragement. I wrote them so late last night, worried that I’d never get them done if I didn’t do it then. Best wishes with yours. 😀

    This is beautiful poetry, I enjoyed reading it very much.

    Love this haiku! I love the images it prompts as I see sheets of rain as well as bed sheets. Have to share another blogger’s post with you about a blowing sheet and her art class. http://breetsuts.wordpress.com/2010/03/31/capturing-motion/

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Leslie,
      Thanks. Glad you’re up to read this. You’re the first–nice call on the rain. I hadn’t even thought of that. I’ll visit the link you left now. Sounds good.

If you leave tracks, I'll find you.
