I tap out the rhythm and the blues
While wearing these old worn out shoes

    :) Loved this! Hope it takes you all the way to the top! Thanks for the visits and comments since you got back. I've been "away" in a sense too. I was one of the speakers at a Women's Retreat sponsored by the church. That same evening a friend was rushed by ambulance to emergency and I was with her through the ordeal and took care of her and her girls at my place last night since her hubby is away. Been kind of hectic. Take care.....

    Wow, it sounds intense. Fortunate for her you were there to help.

    Descriptive couplet-- it reminds me of the tap dancers in Bourbon Street.. New Orleans.

    I like that picture. I was thinking of the song mr Bojangles.

    A natural high tapping out the rhythm and blues, don't matter about old shoes it's in the 'soul'not the sole. A great image conveyed Richard. Warm Smiles, Connie

    This was fresh and cool... course I like any musical references in poetry. This could be a hook in an old-time song sung by some singer with a gravelly voice... really cool!

    Are you Related to Taylor Hicks? He was playing in Vegas and it got me curious if there was a connection.
