Dirty Shoes

If you step in dirt
When in a garden
Take off your shoes
Outside the door
The trail you forge
Will grow no flowers
And future weeds resemble scorn


dVersepoetspub.com Thursday’s continuation of sevens, we write a septet, a poem of  seven lines in any form.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

  3. Amused me as I get told off by the hubby if I trail in any sign of our red dirt or bits of seeds from wild weeds!

    ah yes…..even in the most beautiful of gardens is the dirt….lest we simply take some beautiful blooms into the house and leave the dirt behind!

    “Resembles corn” would also have worked. Nice little advice Mary. 🙂
