haiku retrospective xxvii

damp extra blankets
mildewed over the winter.
el nino's bequest.

in the baking heat
on the back deck washing line,
sun-hot blankets wave.

white pillows hang fat.
puffy quilts flow to the ground.
mildew smell rises.

more time in the sun?
how long does it take heat to
cure winter rain's work?

17 June 1998
