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. Hey there 🙂

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind
    me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours–
    but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching
    for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) –
    it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!


    1. Hi Justin
      I don’t remember the theme, just that it was free with WordPress, tagged for writers and text-oriented. I just use it to post a poem every month or so.


  2. 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!
