wrapped in tissues, the gleaming pink shoes
peer sleepily from the old box
dreaming of hot tango nights
waiting, ever youthful
hips, tempting me
go back, dance
Author's Note: This post is for d'Verse Poets: Poetics - on your feet. I have used a poetry form - nonet (9 lines) for this prompt about shoes. I am really happy with experimenting with different forms, and I hope you guys try out other (shoes) poetry forms. It is challenging but fun~
Happy dancing day ~

Heaven, I hear you. This is a wonderful poem. KEEP those shoes. Go dance again. When, if not now?ReplyDelete
I find nothing sexier than a woman in heels on the dance floor ;)ReplyDelete
I want those shoes - this is such an elegant poem :)ReplyDelete
Always listen to the urging of shoes...ReplyDelete
Those shoes look like they could dance all night, and your words are music for it. Great nonet. (typo: peers should be peer in the second line--the s's just got sassy on you, ;-) )ReplyDelete
Thanks Joy...edited. Lovely comments - I appreciate it!ReplyDelete
Those shoes were definitely made for dancing. Fun!ReplyDelete
Love the poem and how its shape reminds me a bit of a high heeled shoe. A lot of good imagery and of yourself in this poem!ReplyDelete

One can say this only after reading your poem!
Glad found you.
I am enjoying your nonets. I really like "Shoes." You did a great job. BTW...Those shoes are wonderful, I'd love to put them on and go dancing.ReplyDelete
As you said "Happy Dancing Day" so I will dance NOW--barefooted though-- to Funkagenda's Drift. Google it, you'll be dancing I promise.
Listen to the shoes and go dance :)ReplyDelete
"Hot tango nights" - a perfect description of those shoes. Good poem.ReplyDelete

I'm a barefoot dancer...gravity is my worst enemy! :) But, I just might risk the fall for the sake of those shoes! Wonderful Nonet!ReplyDelete
You can dance in those? I always end up kicking my shoes off.ReplyDelete

I love the shape of this poem - a feminine form which perfectly falls into the character of your blog.
It gives a strong impression of who you are and what you are feeling- expressive and intresting.
Anything that reminds me of a lady i once danced the tango with is a winner...
"dreaming of hot tango nights" -- oh yes, I love this.ReplyDelete
Love the pink shoes, too. ;-)
Happy dancin' days!
They're hot to look at, but I don't know how you could dance in those things!ReplyDelete
So fun but if I put those things on I'd be flat on my face!ReplyDelete
Shoes like that are for sitting only-I couldn't imagine dancing in them.ReplyDelete
They are beautifully sexy though and are calling to you... Love your nonet.
This is great ... I recently learned of the nonet ... I appreciate viewing an example that I can relate! Thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
This is one time centering a poem is a plus. Really gives the "seductive" line umph.
Thanks everyone for the lovely comments.ReplyDelete
In my younger days, I could dance in those shoes. Not now, I prefer dancing barefoot. But shoes like that pink killer shoes, hold a meaning to a woman. Men might not understand it- shoes are just different for women.
Love the form, the content and the very evocative photo.ReplyDelete
i ♥ shoes!
