Foot Prints

Lady slipper
on a sandy hill
halfway down stairs 
to the beach. 

Delicate wild flower 
appears unbidden, 
resists transplanting,
hides under brambles. 

A ballerina in the shade-- 
yellow toe extended 
on a a green leg--
is easily missed.

  1. Very nice, Ann! I will think of your poem when I see our lady slippers here in the woods. They will be out soon!

    I hope all is well with both of you? I miss you!
