It's time for another post linked to Mama Kat's Writers Workshop.

The prompt for this post that I chose was
Write a 20-line poem (rhyming or non-rhyming) dedicated to your favorite piece of clothing (could be a shirt, hat, shoes, etc.).

This particular prompt caught my attention because although I love shoes, I can't wear a lot of the cutsey , sweet little different kinds of shoes due to my leg braces. I thought it would be fun to do a poem about shoes, so here goes:

Lost Shoes

Oh shoes, my shoes
Where for art thou
did I lose?

With two under the couch,
one black and one red.
One in the dogs mouth
one under the bed.

Oh my blue shoe do I see?
With the cat chewing on it
so delicately?

Though no match to be
shoes certainly abound.

Flip flops, mules, slides
and tennies,
cute little loafers
filled with pennies.

Oh shoes, my shoes
where for art thou
did I lose?


I hope you at least got a small giggle out of that one:) I've worn these leg braces for seven years now, and admittedly when I realized I could no longer wear cute little flip flops , and sandals and such, I got angry. Actually had to grieve for the shoes I could no longer wear, although it would save me money on pedicures! I still get those from time to time, but don't like people touching my feet anymore, so it makes it a bit difficult.

Till next time...

I'm here now, just so I wouldn't be late on the blog b-day wishes if I don't get around to reading tonight!!

And this is a great post, I have a good friend who mourns her sandals too, she's been in braces for 30 years and she still isn't over the shock. She wears lots of Merrells and keen type sandals, but they don't compare!

Happy happy day!!

You must have seen me at church this Sunday. I went with 2 different sandals on. I was trying to decide which pair to wear and forgot! Course I had another pair just like them at home!!

Oh that's a very cute poem. I love it!

Visiting from Mama Kats ...

Very cute! I like how you worked in the "art thou." Always classes up a poem! And I don't know a woman (except myself) who couldn't wax rhapsodic about shoes!

Love this! Why is it always only one shoe that gets lost?! I don't get it.
