Celebrate Poetry-4/26: LAUNDRY

The theme for Day 26’s celebration of National Poetry Month is “LAUNDRY.  Click HERE for details of this haiku celebration of throughout the month of April.

Some people might think it’s a little strange, but I like to fold laundry. I find it meditative. One fold after another, piece by piece, until it’s all done.

one, then another
not a thought beyond the fold
my meditation

  1. Scent of fresh linen
    Crisp, white sheets on a clothes line
    Home fills with summer

  2. Robert Brown says:

    Dirty laundry hangs
    From the ceiling to the floor
    I’ll wash it, some day

  3. Jim Barton says:

    Wooden clothes pins grip
    stonewashed blue jeans on the line,
    dripping in the sun

  4. Azim Khan says:

    too stubborn –
    around
    my neck

  5. Azim Khan says:

    laundryman spins
    again
    nothing to wear
