A Haiku to My Favorite Shoes

Now I know from the title alone you probably think that I have gone completely bonkers, but before you assume that I have started writing poetry to all my footwear, let me explain.  The Independent Fashion Bloggers website has been issuing projects each week that challenges members to write about a particular topic.  This week's assignment is to write a Haiku about a piece in your closet that you love. The item of my adoration, my leather French Sole ballet flats. For someone who loves clothes as much as me you would think it would be easy for me to wax poetic about a favorite item, well I'll let you be the judge of my success.

Lovely Caramel
Supple and sweet perfection
Cradle weary feet

I really enjoyed this assignment and look forward to the next project from IFB.  It was something I would not have tried on my own and it gave me an excuse to count syllables on my fingers and use a thesaurus.  To read all the Haiku entries that participants submitted visit The Independent Fashion Bloggers site.  


  1. Those shoes are adorable! And great haiku


  2. Photography shows the intricate details of the ballet flats. Shoes and candy, both very sweet.

  3. Em and JudyG thanks for reading and commenting. The photo doesn't do the shoes justice they are so beautiful and soft, like butter.
