I can smell the fresh scent of line dried clothes!
Almost makes me want a clothes line again.:-D But no, I think I'll just enjoy yours. Love how you've taken a menial chore & turned it into a lovely spiritual lesson.

I could totally feel the warm air and smell the fresh breeze. Made me want the openness in my own life. Great job sharing a lesson!

I loved it, every bit except the last line! Great job with the spiritual lesson and your free verse. Would have liked it to end on a positive note; am I reading it wrong? Thanks for sharing this!

Emily, this is BEAUTIFUL free verse, ripe with imagery and symbolism. You're definitely one of our best poets!

I remember the sweetly stiff clothes from my mother's clothes lines. Liked the way you worked this into a lesson we all need--just be ourselves and trust God to take care of the rest.

You brought back so many memories of laundry days when I was a kid. I love this - and the message at the end is perfect.
