Rainbow Domestic

So learning from William Carlos Williams that one can be inspired by the most ordinary things of the everyday, but then you can elevate them and dissect them with humour and method.

Ripple Poetry

So today is the humourous praise poem!


Never ending or retreating
you appear each day in diverse array

Multicoloured patches
of the way a family
works and plays

You could be a rainbow leading to
treasures of faraway lands
silks and spices
market bazzar

You could be the way to find a
job, and keep a job

If only you were cleaned and pressed
and not a cause to be depressed

And now you are picked up and tackled
placed with soap and machine
to turn and whirl

Back into clear multicolours
as long as you are neatly sorted
so the colours don’t run
and if needed a special concoction
leaves your fabrics oh so softened

Goodbye darling heap of never ending

Now you are
dancing to the the wind
targetting the line
neatly lined and clipped with
rainbow plastic.
