the putter of rain

changed the atmosphere

both inside and out


the din of rain

made me move

rushing outside to the lines


he shouted to remind me

of the laundry hanging outside

soaking the large drops of tropical rain


I yelled back to confirm

I was on my way

to the backyard, basket in hand


I sang to myself whilst

plucking the pegs hurriedly

off the bedsheets and pillow cases.

  1. This slice is poetic and musical. I love the repetition and use of loudly to create the tension of the moment. Your ending, a quiet song of taking down the laundry, is unexpected and soothing. Way to go in capturing the mundane in some a marvelous way!
