The color of the day is pink……


Darks, Whites, and … Pinks by Raymond A. Foss  DSC_0006
A routine task made different
with three little girls in the house

For a man who learned
laundry “skills” in college,
long before boys took Home Ec.

We were lucky when there was more
than a single load
(that didn’t cause the washer to tilt)

Now with a four, five, and nine year old
cluster of little princesses
It is darks, whites, and pinks
when I sort their clothes

Separate baskets, separate settings,
for pink clothes –
Capris, and “blouses”, and skorts,
Oh My!
