An Ode to Feet

An Ode to Feet

by Elizabeth Challinor


In all your crooked glory

I thank you

For being there

For holding me up

Sometimes straight

Sometimes bent

Sometimes barely standing

I thank you

For taking me forward

In leaps and bounds

In tiny tentative steps

For helping me to back track

For walking me sideways

For keeping me safe and sound

On your no nonsense ground

In the midst of ever fluttering feelings

Inspired in the art work of Ângela Canas.
