The Red Shoe

The red shoe

 lay in the grassy verge

 by the path

It was upright

 and in tact

 only the velvet scarred

by sun and rain

silken thread patterned the shoe

 as cobwebs

patterned the scene

floating

like delicate slithers of mist

shimmering

beneath the sunlight

that stabbed through the clouds

 shinning down

to where the dye

 stained the ground

a clue lost and found

with the changing elements

Another red shoe

lays in the grass

 by the road

  In tact

the same velvet red

patterned with the silken thread

as her golden hair

Patterned  the ground

Shimmering under the sun

While she floats above

A delicate mist

In the rays of light

That beam down

To where her blood

Stains the blades

  2. it was like reading a short mystery story. Nice introduction and an amazing climax and an open ended ending (who did it? who was the girl? etc.)…Loved it!

    great work!
