Yellow

Carpe Diem Time Machine #4, Yellow


Paloma has once again given an interesting prompt for the Haiku Kai.

Here is Paloma's effort at haiku inspired by the painting:

morning washing –
the scent of yellow grass

clinging to my hem 

long into morning -
the scent of mud and green things

baked on yellow stones

drawbridge creaks
she bends to the drudgery
stone washboard

water drawn
kettle's boiling hot water
washboard scrubbing

conclusions drawn
whites neither grey nor yellow
washboard success

sketches drawn
mechanized wash day wonder!
washboard retired

curtains drawn
hillbilly band plays a jig
washboard strummed
