Ode to My Feet!!

The sun this morning
tickles the hill
with the joy
of a squirrel
scampering
along the top
of a fence.
I want to step into the deep fur
of that hill.
Perhaps, I will.
Stepping!
Prancing!
My feet are so alive,
they are pointing and stretching,
wiggling and jiggling,
taking this whole thing,
in stride.

They are having fun!
They never enjoyed standing in front of the mirror,
bemoaning the look of uncurled strands of floppy hair.
They are excited,
like penguins on trampolines,
swooshing otters, sliding on snow,
deer lifting their hooves to carefully choose,
just the right green,
on which to feed.
My feet are bunnies bouncing up and down,
kangaroos,
gazelles.
They are grateful for a head to carry,
and especially thankful that the head,
is not waving a sloppy, grungy mass of useless fur.
Of course, they are also appreciate that the head,
to which they are connected,
was clever enough,
to furnish itself,
with a bunch,
of warm, cuddly, colorful,
stylish,
and not-so-stylish,
Hats,
so Feet can roar, romp, canter,
and not say brrrrrr!!
