A mesmerizing haiku. One that speaks of life in such a simple action. It brings back a lot of memories to my mind. Especially watching my grandmother hanging wet clothes out to dry back in the late 60's and early 70's. It is a simple moment that leaves a lifetime impression upon the heart. Excellent work on these words.

I like this, Lisa. It brings images of being near the ocean, perhaps the Algarve, where warm wind makes you smile but is hell on the drying clothes.

A beautiful poetic portrait of sunny days and easier times. Loved this Lisa. I remember helping my grandmother hanging clothes on the clotheslines and the aroma of freshly washed sheets. Thank you for sharing this.

A lovely haiku dear Lisa, you've brought a moment of your life into written words, the transforming of joy.
How are you doing dear Lisa? How is Spain in the spring?

awesome..it shows :)
I love the simplicity of this. Reading it backwards; the wind blows sandy dirt on the clothes so they get washed and the old women is happy that the clothes are clean again. :)
Aren't we all happy when the washing is done? I read about you breaking your clavicle. I hope you are healing fast and well. Prayers for you for a fast recovery. Temp

I did smile Lisa. That’s what you call sod’s law. Just when everything is going well, something comes along to mess it up. You also took me back to my mum’s washdays.

Well done for trying this form.

We can't help but smile when things go our way in the winds of change, and frown when they don't. I hope this dear woman keep smiling.

Wowzy woooo! You are welcome.
This is my childhood soul reminiscing, remembering the smell of fresh-folded linens like a basket of laundered snow.
