Flip. Flop!

(a 5-minute quickwrite from summertime 2009)

Flip.  Flop.  Freedom.
Sweet release from a winter’s worth of smelly closet.
Shuffle shuffle shuffle – sunshine. 
Hot pavement.  Splintery boardwalk.  Sand.
Abandoned, as the feet fly into the water, oh so blue.
Flip.  Flop.  Fish!

Priceless protection for pattering pads
$3 thongs – can shove into a bag
travel the world and the neighborhood
flippin’ and floppin’ – man, life is good.
Kicked off at the hammock, the beach, and inside.
Let those feet breathe, dance, slip and slide!
