haiku retrospective cccviii

faded roses
dirty white bubbles
below the drain pipe

swaying treetops
flowered sheets billow
on the clothesline

hot deck underfoot
damp cotton gauze clings
to my arm

sun-bleached drying rack
a row of tie-dyed panties
above the socks

still evening
a stack of folded slacks
on the picnic table

mosquitoes rise
the damp scent of clean clothes
on the line
