Tired But Spunky


These old feet of mine, such an engineering masterpiece
Bravely holding up this great body of work with little complaint
Down to earth and tired, but sporting spunky red nail polish


Barbara Gorelick
for the Feet contest.

    Barbara, this looks like a very good sijo poem. All three lines are very descriptive.
