Found Objects Poetry Challenge: Day 17

Laura Shovan is challenging all who want to participate in a daily writing challenge this month. It’s consists of found objects.

Day 17: Contributed by Donna Smith.  This photo reminded me of my lost tap shoe when I was in second grade.  It ended my lessons because my parents couldn’t afford to replace my tap shoes.


Flip Flop

once I
lost a tap shoe

that ended
dance lessons:

bandy twisting
clicking toes
drum slapping

today I
found a flip flop

that started
a beach day:

wave playing,
sand castling,

a shoe lost
a shoe found
tap dancing in flip flops
