If the Shoe fits…

Two weeks in and on this Saturday morning we are to write entries for an imaginary dream dictionary. The idea is to select one or more of the selected words, and to write about what it means to dream of this. I have decided to write an Acrostic poem and have chosen “ballet slipper” as my prompt, triggered by a very cute ballet shoe card my parents gave me on my sixth birthday and which I still have in my memory box!


Ballet Slipper


B asically this dream signifies

A desire to dance with life

L etting the past loosen

L eaving lost love behind

E volving into the new you

T aking graceful steps towards your future


S atin slippers are particularly revealing

L eitmotifs for shiny new beginnings

I n which you will soon appear

P as de deux or solo

P resenting your own elegant enigma

E volving like a silky ribbon

R eady for your next move
