She liked to sit in the backyard
And watch the neighbor's laundry
Swing on the clothesline, crisp pale
Blue buttondowns of the husband
Wrinkling in the halfwind, Summer
Sighing across the silky surface of
The twisting sundress, first one way,
Then the other, like soft hips
Swinging, one way, then the
Other, and when they were just
Washed and still wet they would
Flap and flick beads into the grass
That would flash fast down like
Little silver raindrops, one way,
Then the other.

Love the imagery~ I especially the part where you personalized the season of summer and sighing.
