writing a poem about a person focusing on an object connected with that person

Okay, here’s the challenge. Write a poem about a person focusing on an object connected with that person. For instance, say a favorite aunt had a quilt she always wrapped herself in at night while she sat in her favorite chair, or maybe a scarf that you loved and lost and how you felt when you wore that scarf. Get the jist? Okay, write one and share.

  1. Here’s mine:

    Blue Dearfoam Slippers

    It’s that plish plish across the tile
    that is so familiar,
    mom’s house slippers in blue.
    they are what she feels most comfortable in
    after her feet have been mangled and mishandled
    from botched surgeries and too many years in high heels
    big toe rising up
    she pushed it down to get into her shoes
    until finally the toe had to go.
    now she cannot wear a flip-flop or
    a pretty strappy sandal,
    it has to be closed toes for the public,
    but when she comes home
    she eases into her blue Dearfoam slippers
    and goes plish plish across the floor.
