In The Wind

Shifting shapes shades colours
flying flapping fluttering
flowing in the airy current
punctuated by random gusts
sharp breezes tugging at
corners of rectangular towels
anchored to the clothesline.
Brightly hued stripes patches
spots catching sunlight on
thick velvetty pile and
worn threadbare cloth alike.

A flowing abstract depiction
of colours caught by sunlight
on a brisk drying day.
