Broken Cycle, Whole Heart

Broken Cycle, Whole Heart

Broken Cycle, Whole HeartWrinkled, tossed, unused,
this heart had grown
a stranger to affection
until your heart took it
for a spin, rinsed away
any trace of despair,
and broke the cycle
that held it captive
with a love that is
permanent, pressed
into the pages of both
my heart and mind.

This poem is my response to Poetics: Put Your Words on Spin Cycle, the prompt from De Jackson at dVerse ~ Poets Pub, which is to write a laundry poem. She offered the option to use a list of laundry words and to include three or more words or phrases from the list.

fluff & fold
spin cycle
permanent press
wash & wear
cycle
dryer fuzz
machine wash warm
tumble dry
dry flat
presoak
wrinkled
front load
rinse
fine delicates
clothes pins
downy
tide
