The Luminous Shoelaces

The wondrous path

filtered by the sun

many cricket throats sang

tempting me to run

My shoelaces tangled

an experiment gone awry

multiple colors flowing

a result of luminous dye

Small creatures

interested in the sight

came close to investigate

giving me a fright

Walking down the path

stepping into some water flowing

fish came closer

to the shoelaces glowing

A cabin in the distance

happy to be home

finding new shoelaces

putting the colored ones on a gnome

Looking out the window

the gnome now lights the way

a path into the forest

adventure for another day
