ghazal (ruby slippers)

entry picture


I tiptoe to your house in my ruby slippers

I have a date to dance in my ruby slippers


Twirling toes in holly halls take merry chances

Dervish dances in my pointy ruby slippers


Tie your bow tie, quick as it spins my darling

I’ll spin and spoon with you in my ruby slippers


I wade through frozen snow, they’re in my hand, held tight,

My own sparkly optimistic ruby slippers


I hide them in my mufti army surplus bag

Wrapped in plain brown paper, my two ruby slippers


I’ll give you an emerald tie pin, a present

To match the bling of my magic ruby slippers


Our karaoke poetry melts all the hearts.

I know all the words in my bright ruby slippers


Cinderella’s sisters will have no truck with me,

I twirl my petticoats, oh! my ruby slippers


With holly, ivy, mistletoe, we’ll pull crackers

And eat hot plum pudding from my ruby slippers


The last waltz will be Ann’s fandango made of love

As we jive forever in our ruby slippers!

Delightful Ann...

However I changed your Gaz line to Skimpy Knickers and reread the poem....

Forgive me but I prefer my adaptation...

Lots of love xx

This sounds like a very exciting event! Where can I get tickets.

Seriously though... liked the jumping situations and red words. Lovely and light hearted Ann, Win x

'Dervish (i.e. Sufi?) dances...' Interesting, considering the origin of Ghazals? Etc, etc. I like this, very clever, very topical. Must have a go at one sometime myself.
