Something a Little Different on Day 5

Try to push your creativity in blogging by doing something a bit different today. Try a post of all photographs, a video blog post, a podcast, a poem, or write from a new perspective (for instance, write about a day in the life of a sock from the sock's point of view.)

ODE TO MY SOCKS
by Pablo Neruda (translation by Stephen Mitchell)

Maru Mori brought me
a pair
of socks
which she knitted with her own
sheepherder hands,
two socks as soft 
as rabbits.
I slipped my feet
into them
as if they were
two
cases
knitted
with threads of
twilight
and the pelt of sheep.

Outrageous socks,
my feet became
two fish
made of wool,
two long sharks,
of ultramarine blue
crossed
by one golden hair,
two gigantic blackbirds,
two cannons:
my feet were honored in this way by
these
heavenly
socks.

All socks pictured in this post were knitted by Amy Heins and found on her blog, Purlene's Corner.
