A lone shoe would, if it could, walk to find its missing mate.

It is not yet dawn
and already the old shoe
clamors for a walk.

  1. Wow! That looks better than mine…and its got its laces, is it a pair?

  2. Love this! 😊

  3. Good, good. So we may not forget.

  4. Really like how the single shoe clamors for its mate. One single heartbeat does not make a life, but two do.


  5. I love the idea of shoes wanting to go for a walk. I will remember that now, every time I put on my shoes!

  6. This made smile as images of summer festivities come to mind. 🙂

  7. I totally love all this! The picture’s caption reads to me like a one-line haiku, too.

  8. Love it I can imagen the old shoe waiting impatiently

  9. I like to take my walks just before dawn. Much cooler then.

    That is really really clever. Love it!

  11. This shoe indeed looks like it’s going to walk on its own… by the way, that was a nightmare I had when I was a young child due to a tv commercial about shoes walking on their own… in my dream, lots of shoes run after me and I still remember that!

  12. Delightful haiku ~ ^_^ ~ pretty shoe !

  13. the joy i find when reading your haiku!
