National Poetry Month Day 15: Shoes

This photo was taken in Alaska. From the shoreline, I watched the water, waiting to see a whale spout. And, I wrote a few haiku. But not this one. It’s new, and inspired by my desire to get out there making memories again. But the closet is dark. 😦

Now my shoes carry me thousands of steps each day, as I compete in a walking challenge sponsored by my employer, NAI Robert Lynn. It’s an excellent way for us to get some exercise while we work from home.

Some of my attempted 10,000 steps/day are around our neighborhood pond. Some are gained by jogging around my kitchen island as I wait for a file to download. Some are even marched in place as I watch Bosch on TV.

I’m grateful to be working from home. I’m grateful to work for a company that cares about our health and well-being. But I also look forward to the day when my shoes and the steps they take will GET ME OUT OF THIS HOUSE. 🙂

P.S. – See? I did actually write a haiku about my shoes. (See my “Empty Mind” haiku.)

  1. When there’s no outdoors
    What’s inside you must go out
    Explore through the mind
