Magpie Tale-The World Will Be A Better Place If...




This is a post for Magpie Tale (Shoes) hosted by Willow at:
http://magpietales.blogspot.com/2010/05/mag-16.html
I wrote a poem this time, it is a fiction trying to have fun looking at the prompt.
I value Your Input and Wishing You All A Very Enjoyable Tuesday Ahead!

*****

A pair of shoes
Is like a pair of eyes
That watch what you do
When your feet desert them
To woo another pair of shoes,
Or to swim in public pools;
To take a sunbath near a bay,
Or to cuddle with your lover by the end of the day.
To stay shoeless,
feel fearless;
And run wild
Like a daring child,
...
The world will be a better place
If one always wears the other person's shoes
With significant grace,
And walk side by side
With matched pace.

I liked this poem.
If only we would ALL walk a mile in each other's shoes, instead of belittling each other's personal life.

This is a very nice poem
Poor shoes having to watch you as you leave them behind :)
Wearing some one elses shoes and seeing what they saw, is heavy stuff.
Good one Jingle :)

Love the sentiment about walking in other's shoes...something we can never really do but the thought of which allows us to be more empathetic and compassionate. Plus...I love shoes..a bit of an obsession for me!!
