Flash Friday - 55...

Right foot Left foot
Oh, the sound of pitter - pat.
Some paths lead me forward
And some leave me confused.
Destinations that have brought me joy
and journeys that left me feeling used.
I choose these streets and avenues
Whether skipping and whistling
or singing the blues.
This reminds me,
I need some new shoes!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Flash Fiction Friday
Every Friday, I compose a short story of 55 words - no more, no less.
If you want to join in the fun and games and give it a try...
post your story and report to the boss.
G-Man!

Mona said...

LOL! Life's journey is such that the shoes get worn out very often. But worn shoes are also a soothing reminder that we have been moving and not stagnated and rotted in one place.

Great 55ve !

If you are wearing Air Jordans
Or shoes from the king
It's what's in you, not on you
Gives your step all the spring

Gabriella Moonlight said...

Wow, what a great short story...and I would agree who doesn't need "new shoes?"

Suzanne, I hope every road you take gets you where you want to be. :D

Have a great weekend, my dear!

Mojo said...

Always angling for the new shoes, I swear!

Ah well, as long as you've worn them out in the pursuit of good and vital things I won't begrudge you a new pair.

Besides, I love what they do for your calves. ;)

Very nicely done, Liquid. It's not the destination but the fellow travelers we meet along the way. That, and getting tips about where to find the coolest shoes.
