Simply Snickers Challenge


This week's Simply Snickers Challenge uses the words line, look, and lush. The accompanying painting is Camille Pissarro's Woman Hanging Laundry (1887).



Linens blowing against the line
Cool breezes whistling summertime
Fragrant blossoms dips in air
Lush gardens beckons unique flair

Chorus of children catching wind
Lingering on pastel skies
Mother looks upon her babe
Contently laying in the grass
Patiently awaiting mama's tickles
