My Love’s a Pair of Red Red Shoes
By Laurie Michaels-Lee
These red, red shoes of mine take me thru, down, up and over. They’ve traveled down paths of clear vision with no direction.
Once, these red, red shoes were fancy, shiny and new, pinched a little and gifted a blister or two.
This pair has strutted and danced and climbed and shuffled.
This pair has taken me down paths of bloom and paths of snow, maybe a slip but never a stumble.
These red, red shoes have been re-souled countless times and no doubt, will be re-soled many more.
Now, well worn, a luster replaces the shine. A comfort replaces the pinch. The fit is one of a kind.
These red, red shoes of mine.
