On the Line

I don't know her.
I know she likes greens and blues,
sometimes a splash of red.
She likes soft cotton shirts
and comfy pants.
She likes her clothes crisp
and warm from the sun,
and she carefully, methodically,
pins them on the line.
Their evenness is important to her.
Maybe I know her a little, after all.


  1. Might this be you?? I love the washline photos; not too many anymore now, tho!

  2. I tried to post yesterday and it wouldn't let me. This so reminds me of my grandmother who years ago took in laundry to earn some money when times were lean. She could hang the most beautiful line of clothes. Thanks for the memory.
