February 13



Perhaps because I could never

find shoes I liked that would fit me

size 12 and cute, I mean never,


out of frustration it hit me;

if I want colorful footwear

departing the mall is the key.


To procure some footwear with flair

I need to get to the greenhouse.

I find all the shoes I want there.


Don’t have to match these shoes to blouse,

slipper orchids are quite divine

just need these shoes from the hothouse.


To them I make a quick beeline,

They are sure to fit every time.


(A Terza Rima poem)
