Day 23: Writer’s Digest April 2016 PAD

For today’s prompt, write a footwear poem. A poem about shoes, flip-flops, socks, slippers, flippers, boots, pumps, and so on. If you’d prefer not to dedicate a poem to your footwear, just mention footwear somewhere in the poem. That’s right; your hi-tops don’t have to be the star, and it’s totally cool if somebody’s clogs play a minor role in the poem.



I have LOVED shoes

my entire life

I know my first

word was not

shoes … but it

was one soon after


My mother teased

that my aunt ‘marked’

me while she was

pregnant because

they always went

shoe shopping


My love-hate relationship

with shoes began in my

teens due to my small

foot and limited choices

Shoe heaven on earth

happened when I found

sample shoes that stores

sold at that time were



I really have no favorite

style or color


Since retirement I

have lived in flip-flops

and Chucks of

every color and style

I still have way more

shoes that I can count

or even wear…

yet I always am on

the hunt for the

next new thing for

my feet …
