One Blue Boot

One blue boot300f17213d7c00b5506df68f1cc7c965
Rests atop the frozen ground
Surrounded by the falling snow
Fated to becoming buried, perchance
And forgotten.

One blue boot
Sits all alone until the morrow
When sunlight will gaze upon it
And create a collage of contrast
In color.

One blue boot
Too big for the foot, torn clumsily
While crawling through freshly-made forts
Tears slip into the snow, concealed
By whiteness.

One blue boot
Exemplifies a father’s love and protection
As he carries his little girl with one boot
Promises are kept, tears are dried and
Love uncloaked.
