Tuesday Memes

Hosted by Josie of Two Shoes Texas
Each week  a one-word writing prompt will be selected and you are to share a short story, poem, essay, thought, or photo relating to that topic.  (I'll post the writing prompt for the coming week on Saturdays to give you time to work on your post.) 
This week prompt is 'SHOES"

Choosing Shoes

by Frida Wolfe

New shoes, new shoes,
Red and pink and blue shoes.
Tell me, what would you choose,
If they'd let us buy?
Buckle shoes, bow shoes,
Pretty pointy-toe shoes,
Strappy, cappy low shoes;
Let's have some to try.
Bright shoes, white shoes,
Dandy-dance-by-night shoes,
Perhaps-a-little-tight shoes,
Like some? So would I.
Flat shoes, fat shoes,
Stump-along-like-that shoes,
Wipe-them-on-the-mat shoes,
That's the sort they'll buy.

Tuesday Teaser!!!

The voice warned her not to speak. Staci ignored the voice.
"First he has stopped  communicating with me then he stays late at work'.
Malcolm takes a sip of his water before he plants the seed. 'You think he may be having an affair at the office or maybe he's gay".  Against her better judgement she speak again.  'No he's not gay but i'm not sure about but i don't think.....
Malcolm replies: "That sounds like doubt".  Being a man I can see this better than you and if your husband is sending mixed emotions than you ought to allow..... 


  1. Sidne, yeah i am glad you linked up and I love the shoes you picked, I have very wide feet so I can never find pretty shoes but it doesn't stop me from loving them, the poem is PERFECT!!!! Have a great week!!

  2. Love the jaunty shoe poem/song! It could almost be sung as a round! Delightful!

  3. Interesting teaser--sounds like a sad book.

    here's ours: http://ourstack.blogspot.com/2012/09/tuesday-teasers-3-for-you.html

  4. It's all about comfort for me! *LOL*

  5. She ought to allow what? Excellent teaser, I want to know more. Oh Lord I hope her husband isn't lying or cheating.

    The poem is perfect. I have a love/hate thing going on with shoes. Love to look but hate to wear.

  7. Your teaser made me wonder: Is he having an affair? If not, then what's going on? I'd read more of this book to find out!
    My Teaser is from A LOT LIKE A LADY.
    PS: Love the shoes too, especially the brown ones in the upper left-hand corner!

  8. One of my favorite topics....SHOES! Loved the poem too, it leaves you guessing.

  9. What a fun poem you've shared with us, Sydne! Ahh yes, the beautiful and the practical... I'm afraid I gravitate toward the latter. :-) Thank you so much for joining us for the first Two Shoes Tuesday... hope to see you again next week! :-)

  10. Great poem! I am not a shoe person but love the shoe pics, even the pointy toe ones. Odd, but cool.

  11. Nice poem find for 'SHOES,' Sidne. I'm sort of like the last four lines as I have four pairs of shoes.

    Everyday shoes are NIKE running shoes with generic arch supports, go to church and dress are black walking shoes with the arch supports, my sandals for around the house and yard and driveway, and my golfing shoes.

  12. Love this shoe poem!!! Love love love it, said the shoe lady!
