freshly laundered shirts
on the clothesline

    Kate, this reads as 3 sentences, and your
    grammar is off a bit:

    warm breeze
    candystriped sundress dances
    leaves rustle

    Hey Deb:

    Nice haiku.

    best wishes,

    Throws away apple
    Because he can't have the tree
    Just leaves him hungry.

    those colourful shirts
    the clothesline reminds me
    of his absence

    weather report
    the unpicked blackberries
    dripping with rain

    crisp mountain air ~
    freshly fallen snow
    and yet, the scent of the pines
