NaPoWriMo Post #6 Adieu

Today it’s the 6th day of NaPoWriMo, and the prompt is to write a valediction, a poem about farewells. I dedicate today’s poem to my gold high heels that has served me well for so many years in my latin ballroom dance exams and nights of salsa.

Adieu

Adieu to you
my dancing shoes
Gold glittery heels
3 inches high

Adieu to you
My salsa companion
Shimmy, spin, merengue
All night long

Adieu to you
My sweet memories
Step by step beside him
Once upon a time

Adieu to you
My precious heels
Wrapped In the box
To dance no more

    Just lovely. Gold high heels, I bet it was hard to give them up. And how exotic latin ballroom dancing and nights of salsa sounds.
    I gave up wearing high heels when I was pregrnant with my first child and somehow have never gone back to them. These days I wear only chunky heels, which is hard because I am only five foot two.🙂

      Hahaha I’m 5 foot 2 too! Vertically challenged but I’m sticking to flats and practically live in Toms slip ons🙂
