Shoe closet


Runners and Mary Janes
oxfords and flats
flip flops and sandals
with matching straw hats

that’s what you’ll find
in my wardrobe of shoes
cushy and wide
or my feet sing the blues.

I long for platforms
stilettos and mules
slingbacks and dress pumps
with sparkly heels

but my old feet are fussy
immune to each fad
and if they’re not comfy
they treat me bad!

Last week Miss Rumphius posted a shoe prompt. I wrote something light and typed it in her comments, so today I put up that ditty here. I’m also linking it to the “In and Around Mondays” meme, where the invitation reads:

On, In and Around Mondays (which partly means you can post any day and still add a link) is an invitation to write from where you are. Tell us what is on, in, around (over, under, near, by…) you. Feel free to write any which way… compose a tight poem or just ramble for a few paragraphs. But we should feel a sense of place. Would you like to try? Write something ‘in place’ and add your link below.

On In Around button

Visit this week’s “On, In and Around Mondays” meme at the Seedlings In Stone Blog (and link your own “In and Around Monday” writings!)

I hope you’ve liked visiting my shoe closet! To help with that sense of place, I took a picture — much to my shoes’ collective dismay.
