Planted Firmly

a free verse poem

feet stay planted firmly,

immune to the

meandering beat,

and yet the fingers tap,

the body sways,

betraying the resolute

boots.

  1. My waterlogged boots
    Can still dance and scoot

    “During the many seasonal rains
    I wondered if I would ever swim again
    So then, I pretended to write a biblical book
    Ignorantly thinking no-one would ever look
     
    Afterwards, I thought I could walk on water
    Then my boots became water-logged
    And if you need to walk a mile in my shoes
    You will have to learn how to swim, and sing the blues”
