The Ensemble

Click- click- click- click- click
Shuffle, shuffle, slip, pad, pad,
Tiptoe, tiptoe, bounce and flounce
Ballet flats. Mary Janes.
Flip, flip, flip, flip, flip, flip
Flip flops.
Cross trainers!

Pumps, slingbacks, high heels and low.
Walkers unused to the elevation wobble and lean,
Give in and walk through halls in their stockings or bare feet,
Donning the dressy shoes for the actual moments of their performances.
Ballet flats in more than black
Keep time with updated Mary Janes in shiny patent leather
Or plain but perfect matte finish.
Dresses, skirts, and at times casual but pretty capris
Accompanied by their footwear as their wearers are accompanied by the piano
Create an ensemble of like -- or unlike -- fashion.

This post was created and inspired by Scribbit's Write Away Contest for May on the topic of (you guessed it) Shoes.

I had visions of all the cute shoes I coveted over the years floating through my brain--did you ever wear those china doll fabric shoes in black that were all the rage here in the early 80s?

Thanks so much for stopping by! I love the sound of shoes :) Especially the flip flip flip of flip flops. Ahhhh summer. Although it is the sound of cross trainers my body would probably like better ;)
