Lost and found

Always just

one

sock is missing.

 

Today it is one of mine,

navy,

with tiny white dots.

 

Last week it was one of hers,

neon and sporty.

 

Why is it never one of his?

Perhaps his socks are too

BIG

for the Borrowers

to use?

 

A lonely sock or two

lies forlorn and forgotten

on the folding table

each week.

 

Never the one I am missing.

 

Perhaps it is time to say

goodbye to the navy socks of winter

and let my toes enjoy

the fleeting warmth of the spring sun.

 

A new pair of sandals awaits me

in my closet.
