I would like to come back to our recent theme on laundry – or simply washing as most people refer to it. It’s a burden we carry and what better way to express that than through poetry (and sketches)?!
The lovely and clever poet Trisha Broomfield has risen to my recent challenge of inviting further poems on washing, and this piece is emotional, colourful and reflective.
A lovely poem Trisha, well done. Read on….
She pegged her washing to the line
one careful garment at a time
green with grey,
black with blue
but the yellow socks
She could not peg them
with green or grey
and next to black they looked like wasps.
Yellow and blue,
and the man
whose yellow socks

Wasn’t that just fabulous reading? Terrific, Trisha. Thank you.
The challenge is still there, PL’s, if you have a piece on laundry or using our everyday appliances. The glove is still thrown down.
Do write in….. Tune in soon for more poetry projects…….
One thought on “Yellow Socks…”
Great poem – and I can imagine Trisha’s voice reading it 🙂
