Sometimes, you just need a little color in your life. And maybe some pampering to go with it. A manicure – or, if you’re feeling really decadent – a mani/pedi, is just the thing to give you a little extra sparkle.
Hast though ever seen
as sleek and smooth as mine own?
Not a scraggly hangnail in sight
And oh, this fine new color
A but dusty on the spectrum of blues and purples
A wintertime thistle
Waving in a garden of freshly unfurled crocuses
Gaze down upon mine feets
Never has a biped traversed the worldly plain
With toesies so daintily appointed
Each tiny nail, filed gently
Hiding all the stubs and door slams
Stumbles and accidental scuffs
Restored to their newborn wonder
Delicate and new
Tiny little moons smiling at the journey
And oh, to the glorious dance of freshly painted toes
Wiggling as they dry
Tapping to sweet beats
And always, always, bringing me
Just a wee bit more laughter
To my otherwise unpolished day
