Spring Sleep

Sighing softly, a gentle breeze, dances amid my clothes line. Sweet the scent, refreshing tease, as sheets, its hug entwines. This night, on Spring, I shall recline.

    Oh, I love it! I'm happy to see someone else appreciates the sight and smell...and the nostalgia of hanging freshly washed clothes out in the breeze to dry! (I still do, when the weather allows!) Ps...many many thanks Paula, for my recent placement in your "Allure" contest!! So pleased!!
