Bare Feet

I always liked
to go without shoes
in the house
and out on the grass.

I like the squish of mud
between my toes…
but so sensual.

I feel sure footed
when my feet are bare
I can run faster
and my balance is better.

I know a hard
callous on the sole
is not always desirable
but it offers freedom
to step anywhere
with the exception of glass
or anything sharp.

Think of animals
with their soft pads
they have no problem
traversing various

not one thinks
to wrap up their toes
in tight leather
where they blister
and become
sweaty and foul. discover
simple pleasures
barefooted and free.
