Chance Upon a Perfect Moment That You Won’t Soon Forget

From the collection published in fall 2015, Autumn Opens a Door.

Chance Upon a Perfect Moment
That You Won’t Soon Forget

Tell me
you don’t think
the sight of a load of clothes
turning in the washer window
with the soap streaming against the glass
Tell me
you don’t think
the earnest chugging sound of the motor
as it turns the load
with the rush of the water filling up the tub
Tell me
you don’t think
I have just described
one of the most satisfying experiences
a person can have
in this world.

  1. It’s certainly more satisfying than hand washing. When my kids were babies, each of them used to love watching the washing tumbling around in the machine. I guess it’s a bit like a kaleidoscope.
