We were talking the other day my husband and I. About shoes. And about the places his ‘new’ shoes have taken him this year. The adventures they have been on with him. They’ve seen thousands of miles, and thousands of acres. Many steps. Puddles. Mud. Doors and floors.
Of all the things we possess our shoes go with us almost everywhere – even to the last piece of concrete before we shed them to run barefoot on the beach!
For poetics we can choose our form – ode, sonnet, haiku, free verse – but I would love to see us wax poetic about the places our shoes have taken us, the places they have seen and do it from their perspective!
Many of you have closets full of shoes. Chose your everyday pair, or a pair that have seen many adventures with you.
Use photos if you are able, we’d love to see your shoes (really!).
Here is a photo of our sandals waiting for us at the beach. My winter boots are dripping by the door and my hubby’s farm shoes are off to work with him.
Welcome new poets, and welcome back friends! It is a pleasure to be tending bar again, and if your boots are dirty please leave them by the door!
Oh and you have a few pairs of shoes, feel free to share more than one shoe story!
The old saying about walking a mile in someone’s shoes to know them has a variation. If you walk a mile in someones shoes, you’ll be a mile away and in their shoes!
