Haiku #2

A Poem by Lee Bakes
"

Something sensory

"
A clothesline unfurls:
Pastel shades against grey skies;
Upon a cliff’s edge.

Hi Lee, in a few short words you have caught something indefinable that communicates more than the sum of the words. I remember seeing a painting by Goya of a part of a dog showing behind a earth bank. (I think from his dark period which may be significant). The painting is of nothing but somehow it seems to encapsulate everything. I can't explain why but your little poem reminded me of this.
Thanks,
Alan

Adding the description of the skies being grey makes me imagine more about the poem. Good job.
