this poem is a wonderful array of white lights, twinkling in the poetics you create here...lovely images, my favs: "The dazzling white of Spanish stucco/ in the blazing sun" AND "he crisp snapping in the breeze white of bedsheets on the line"--this line makes me think of putting clothes out when I was in England...the ending is fabulous too tho, well done my friend

Beautiful imagery Heide! White has so many associations and colors within it - never purely just white. It appears some wonderful poetry is written in moments of distraction, when a minds seeks to fill in blank spaces.

I love the monochromatic theme this sets...cool and yet sizzling!

I can't get over the imagery here, Heide. My many other senses get wonderful feelings also. Thank you for writing this. The heat of the summer is almost upon the area I live in. I will smile when it gets here and think of your poem. :)

The supposedly non color white never so colorful. Stupendous read Heide; nice to see it hit No. 1. Congrats!

I'm enjoying the very last of the morning's cool breezes before the inferno starts up and I read this poem. Now I'll have a more positive attitude and there's no question as to what color clothing I'll wear now. Thanks for an excellent read.

Excellent - I can't add much to what's already been said - "a colorful poem about white" comes closest to my sentiment - nice senual touch with the beads of sweat, too. Congrats on POTD! d:-)
